5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

The freshly made waffles with fresh toppings and creamy ice cream was delightful and a real treat! Will definitely return.

“I really want to like this place, they are almost there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Great idea for a restaurant. Waffles stuffed with whatever sweet or savory goodies you want and served up hot, plus hot dogs and kielbasa. They just need to straighten out a bunch of issues:

- More options for breakfast waffle fillings would be nice. They have an extensive menu of dessert waffles, but only a small whiteboard with handwritten ideas for breakfast waffles (meats, veggies, etc.)

- The breakfast waffles are tiny. If you get the dessert waffles they are stacked to the sky with ice creams and toppings, but the breakfast waffles were a pair of 4-by-4 inch waffles with whatever could fit inside, then put back into the waffle iron to heat them like a panini.

- Ordered a couple of bottled waters. We got one cold and one warm from the back room. The staff were nice enough to offer a glass full of ice to cool the water, but it seems like they should have more than one water in the cooler.

- Our waffles took forever to make -- we are convinced they only have one waffle iron and make them one at a time. Each of us finished our waffle before the next person even received theirs.

- I ordered an egg, sausage, and cheese. I received sausage and cheese (mostly melted out of the waffle) with no egg. By the time I received my order my family was finished eating so I didn't dare correct them.

- Breakfast waffles should come with the option for syrup. Lots of people like a little syrup with their bacon or sausage, and the breakfast waffles are a bit dry without anything on top.

- More seating, more shade. They have three picnic benches for seating. Only two have umbrellas. We were roasting alive in the sun. Families were hovering by waiting for a table. They could easily fit a fourth picnic table and maybe squeeze a fifth. Small tables with an awning overhead might work better.

The funny thing is I would probably go again despite my rating of two stars, but I do hope my comments help them to make some improvements in the future.

“Don't miss this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The smell is incredible and the waffles live up to it. The waffle menu is huge and totally worth a try. If this wasn't our 3rd dessert of the night, we probably would have eaten more waffles than just one. We got the S'mores waffle since it was national s'mores day and it was pretty tasty! Can't go wrong with what you order, everything looked incredible.

“Delicious ice cream; slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went 2 times to this shop right next to the footbridge in BBH. The ice cream is delicious. The service was very slow, probably because it is so popular, but also the second time we went they were severely short-staffed and were trying to fill complicated orders but they just couldn't keep up. The first time we went was at night, and they were properly staffed because they expected it to be busy. Kudos for that. With the adjustment of additional staff during the daytime, this would be my go-to ice cream shop. Nice picnic tables and view as you lap up your treat!
