When you pass by this waffle shop and smell all the baking, it's hard to pass by, but not really worth the calories...I noticed the football players eating there after their early morning practices.

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.
