best breakfast in town

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!

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

Flawless business model. Food is exactly how it looks in the ads and tastes even better. The owners are a true business standard.

We were in town for a wedding! Had breakfast here two mornings. The staff was friendly. Seated quickly. Had coffee and tea ready as soon as you sat down.

I stopped at the Waffle Shop during my short visit to State College for my son's graduation. I was not disappointed. Location: located on College Avenue (at the corner of College Ave and Garner St.), one of State College's main commercial street, this place is hard to miss. Just a few blocks east of Old Main (Penn State's oldest building),... More

As the name implies, please visit here for waffles and you will not be disappointed. Prices are reasonable. Clean and comfortable seating. Lines tend be long but have never waited more than 30 minutes as the staff moves very quickly!

Great food, great service at a reasonable price. Can't ask for anything more from a restaurant that focuses on breakfast. Our waitress was excellent.

One of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Fresh squeezed orange juice, thick slab bacon cooked to perfection, the home fries were delicious and a huge portion. We shared some blueberry pancakes and they were wonderful too! Quick service even though there was a line outside, we were seated within 5 minutes. We also liked that it was located next... More

The Waffle Shop in State College is a great place to start the day with breakfast. I usually get a couple of eggs with home fries and an English muffin. The home fries are great. It's a nice setting with good quick service.
