I was visiting from American and from start to finish the owner was very friendly and explained the menu to Me and the differences in the waffle selections. I decided on a liege waffle with fruit compote, sliced bananas, and house made whip cream. It was delicious. My waffle was crispy on the outside yet soft in the middle.

I took this home to eat in bed while watching a movie. It was very, very good. The belgian waffle was light and freshly made; the vanilla ice cream was substantial and delicious; and the fruit compote had good pieces of fruit and it was not too sweet. The service was prompt and professional. A+ experience.

If you have the opportunity go here whilst in Victoria. We just had a simple waffle with whipped cream on and shared it as we had just had a big lunch. They are huge waffles and you could have one of these for lunch as you can have fruit and other bigger toppings on them. At $6 each they are... More

We had to go back twice in one weekend! Seriously, the most delicious waffles I have ever had! Great variety of toppings too. We will definitely go back our next visit to Victoria.

Went to a Wannawafel in Market Square and enjoyed it, but thought it's expensive for a snack. It's s once in a while kind of thing, so it's ok. Enjoy!

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 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.
