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

There are at least two locations and they both are great. Love the Fruit Sundae (granola, fruit and yogurt). Omelets are superb. Pancakes and waffles were a hit with the kids. We go here nearly every time we visit, so I'm sure the places are always going to please. Try it!

Solid breakfast, yes. We go there on occasion. But beware, worldly eaters - this is a traditional, perhaps townie place. The food is basic and straight-forward, some of it greasy-spoon. Fresh things (like a fruit cup or a grapefruit) are lacking. They do have relatively freshly squeezed OJ, which is good, at least at times of the year when then... More

Great food, lots of options for any meal-preferences (meat eaters, vegetarians, gluten free) Their egg dishes are great, and they perfectly cooked a corned-beef hash dish this most recent time I dined there. Also love the coffee they serve. My parents loved their waffles. Can't go wrong! (They are cash only, but have an ATM by the register) It is... More

Coming from NJ, I'm used to really good diners and places to get your brunch fix. The Waffle Shop in State College is right on par with the quality of food typically found in Jersey. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu from their omelets, pancakes, and sides (homefries are awesome!). Make sure to get their coffee; it's... More

The bacon, tomato and cheddar omelet is fantastic, and the home fries are always perfect. They are always very busy, but the service is still great.

The Waffle Shop has 4 locations but the downtown location isn't as nice. Portions are sizable and service is fast. Also really good for lunch. I recommend a Reuben with onion rings for lunch. Cash only
