This restaurant has unique food that has an excellent taste and the service was great. Their Belgium waffles are not made with a regular waffle batter. They were very tasty and everything else that we ate was also very good. Food was served very quickly. Coffee was also a unique flavor and very good.

I had the afternoon off on Friday and my wife and I went here for a light lunch. The food was great. The Frites were special. The sandwich excellent. They are willing to do my childhood favorite from Montreal - strawberry crepes, even thought it is not on the menu. They have a Salad Nicoise, and we will be back... More

The market is not in a good section of town so my teenage sons and I had to walk through some questionable areas to reach it. Once there we felt safe and enjoyed the food displays. The waffles are advertised as being authentic Belgian but I found them to be heavier than the real gofres. The taste was sweet and... More

For the price... It better taste great. The waffles are very good (with strawberries and whipped cream on top), but once is enough for me.

After living for 15 years in Brussels, we were expecting a more authentic Belgian bistro. The plain waffle was dry and hard, one gets better quality at the local supermarket (!). The traditional crepe was cold and dry. We will not come back and do not recommend. The only passable item was the raisin scone - which is not Belgian.... More

This restaurant is a fun, different option in Cincy. Brunch is very good, but pricey and always crowded. Beer selection is top notch. There is a bakery where you can buy a la carte waffles if the wait for a table is too long. Rating reflects very good food, but expensive prices and too crowded atmosphere.

On Sat and Sunday they open at 9 am and by 10 the place is full!! Excellent coffees and a diverse crowd. Also in a very cool part of Cincinnati. Good shops all around. Do not miss it!

If I hadn't visited the bathrooms prior to leaving - this would have been my glowing review... For these Houstonians - this place was a bit eclectic but not too far off course from some of our local flavor. The staff was so upbeat and fun. The music was just loud enough, not too loud. The patrons were all having... More

Wonderful service. The crepes were outstanding and the burger concoction I ordered was the best hamburger I've ever had. Area is urban and sketchy, but we were there in the late afternoon and it was fine.

My family dined at TOB for brunch, and enjoyed the experience, but felt the restaurant fell short in a few key areas. First, our waffles were slightly overdone, compared to a previous visit, and other "authentic" Belgian waffles. Second, for the popular chicken and waffles, there was way too much tobasco sauce poured on the waffle, and not as much... More
