Nice place for going either in a large group of friends, or with the family. The brunch is great, you have variety of choices. We go there frequently and have tried several dishes such as omelets and the eggs Benedict. The grapefruit juice is also very tasty.

Long lines Sunday mornings and during any "peak" times. Always thought it was funny that they dont take plastic, but there is an ATM inside. Have never had poor service or a bad meal.

The service is fast, you always see someone you know. The food is consistently good. I prefer the Waffle Shop on College Ave or North Atherton Street. You will have to wait in line because it is just too popular.

Plain and simple, don't go anywhere else in town for breakfast or lunch...a mark of an extremely successful restaurant is when there are lines out the door, waiting patiently to eat, and then pay in cash (no CC accepted).

You can't go wrong with the Waffle Shop. Have never left disappointed. Crisp, thick bacon, perfectly done eggs - everything is delicious.

Poor service and the breakfast was insipid... bacon was overcooked and they have not sauces for the waffles. Do not confuse this place in downtown with the "Original waffle shop" located on West College or North Atherton!!.. those are delicious!!

We went here around 10:30am on a Saturday. There was a line as always. The food was very good and very filling. I did not have to eat for quite a few hours after that. I went for the blueberry pancakes which were great. I will have them again
