I was told about wannawaffle by friends because of my time spent living in Belgium. The waffles were every bit as good as I remember and I would recommend a visit while down town.

We first tried Wanawafel in July 2013 when we docked in Victoria on our Alaskan cruise. We fell in love with the charming little shop then and told our whole family about the DELICIOUS waffles they had missed out on. We've been hoping to go back since then. We finally got the chance again this week when we docked in... More

This wee gem of a place not only serves the BEST waffles you have ever tasted but offers a delicious cup of Columbian coffee to compliment the treats.The Belgian couple who run the outlet certainly know their business & take time to chat to their clientele. This is not to be missed when you are in Market Square - take... More

Our son had told us about this place that he found in in 2009 . He said it had the most amazing Belgium waffles he had ever had...even better than he found in Belgium. We looked for it around the Harbor. The next day, after my son had left we stumbled across his food memory. We could see why this... More

Stopped in for brunch and what a good idea it was. I went for the sweet waffle that was piled high with berries, banana and whip cream! Filled me up and satisfied my sweet tooth but the best part is that it was truly delicious!! What a gem of a place

Best waffle we've ever had. The owner definitely takes pride in their product. They were very friendly. The smell of the waffles beckoned us and it was definitely worth going over.

We are very proud to say that Wannawafel inspired and changed the way Canadians think about waffles after appearing on the very popular CBC show Dragons'Den. Now waffles can be an all day snack, no it doesn't always need Maple Sirup. We bake them fresh, it is fine to have a waffle without a topping. Lets try it. In our business it is all about the waffle and the people who serve them, all for you.
