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

The liege waffles are just as delicious as the ones we ate in Brussels and Bruge. You don't need any toppings, the caramelized sugar tastes just right!

We went to Wannawafel for breakfast while in Victoria in August 2015, we stayed about a 20 minute walk away but Wannawafel was worth it. We had a lovely relaxed breakfast in a beautiful setting. The service was brilliant and very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves waffles. Will be going back next time we... More

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.
