The place to go for breakfast

We visit State College, PA a couple of times a year and The Waffle Shop is high on our list for breakfast. They offer a wide variety of menu items. The staff is friendly but it's a busy place so be prepared for a little wait.

This downtown version of the Waffle Shop consistently does not rise to the quality of the rest of the Waffle Shops. It is better than the national chains in town, but it feels cramped and old.

I had heard about going to "the" waffle shop---supposedly where you must go eat in St. College. On a Sunday morning it was very busy, but the staff has things rolling and it's not a long wait. Good food. Waffles excellent. Would recommend to put it on your things to do list for the area.

When I travel to State College, I ALWAYS meet friends at the Waffle House. It is a pleasure to eat there and very reasonable.

What's a better way to meet friends and family for a great breakfast nosh? Go to the Waffle Shop! Three locations in State College and one in Bellefonte makes it convenient to eat out for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Traditional breakfast / lunch menu that never changes, and there's almost always a line. Good food at inexpensive prices. Don't forget... More

If you are in State College, this place is a must for breakfast/brunch. The food is consistently good, prices are reasonable. If there is a line, don't worry, it moves quickly! You won't be disappointed!
