Waffle was amazing - liege waffle with strawberries and whipped cream. There is an area to sit inside or outside which is really nice. Slightly hidden but not too hard to find.

All I can say is....go get yourself the liege waffles topped with banana, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, and Nutella. Get coffee on the side, and have yourself a nice beautiful rest of the day!

I never give up a chance to eat a liege waffle when I'm close to Wannawafel. Please do yourself a favour and order one!

Delicious waffles!! Just a bit small and expensive. But maybe it's just me who wants a big breakfast in the morning. A perfect break in the day.

We needed an afternoon snack and chose a liège waffle (caramel) with mixed berries and fresh whipped creme. Truly wonderful treat. Super light and tasty.

Definitely worth finding this little spot if you want a special treat. The waffles are delicious. I do believe the owners/operators are from Belguim. Excellent. Yummy! And if it is nice you can sit outside in a lovely little courtyard just as you would do in Europe. A treat!

We absolutely love this place and the very nice family that owns it. My daughter insisted on coming here everyday of our recent trip. No regrets. You will not find waffles this good outside of Belgium.

I lived in Belgium for a year, so I know my waffles. Both the Brussels and Liege waffles are fantastic and the service is always excellent.

Thank Pchanteuse

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.
