5 stars across the board. This is such a cool place with a unique menu. The atmosphere was fantastic and our server was top notch. I highly recommend the sweet crepes for dessert !

I have eaten waffles and chicken from many restaurants, this was just ok. The chicken was a skinless breast so not as juicy and the waffle was very sweet, glad I ordered syrup on the side. The beer cheese is very thick and did not have a great beer taste. The meatballs were very sweet. The chocolate orange crepe was... More

We have a family tradition of eating breakfast out on Fridays. Typically very basic, McD, Starbucks, donut shop, etc., Today the boys wanted to head into the city to the 'Waffle Shop' so thats what we did. If you have ever had one of ToB's waffles from Findlay Market you know them to be wonderful. They are dense, rich and... More

We wondered in to taste of Belgium after finding ourselves in over an hour wait at a different restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very beautifully decorated restaurant. We were greeted and seated quickly. They served their alcohol in a very beautiful copper cup (though you had to hand in your ID to get the cup). The food... More

The restaurant is somewhat smaller so if you're going for lunch, get there by 11:30 to be sure you get a table. we had a party of 5 co-workers so we had to sit at the "bar" that was facing the open kitchen which was kind of interesting. Parking is very limited with street meters and maybe one pay parking... More

I'm really glad we had brunch there on a Friday, because people were lined up out the door on both Saturday and Sunday. We stayed at the Cincinnatian right down the street and walked over. We were seated right away and the service was great. I was in desperate need of some coffee and our waitress was very quick to... More

All in all ok. The waffles are not even close to the quality you get in Brussels or other cities in Belgium. They are ok, a lot better than in most of the other American restaurants. The restaurant is quite nice but nothing special. Go there if you want to enjoy solid waffles but do not except any miracles.

Disappointed only begins to describe the experience. Coffee was awful. AC dripped on my back throu out the meal. Had the McWaffles. Without exception or... More

We were a party of five seated quickly on an early Saturday afternoon. The vibe of the place is noisy urban chic. Three of us ordered the chicken and waffles. Two of the plates were excellent, the third the chicken was burned almost beyond recognition. Our server was quick to replace the dish and the second time they got it... More
