Wannawaf has amazing sorts of ice cream from Shain's of Maine, from cookie dough to peppermint stick. We shared a Monkey's Uncle, which was a fresh made waffle with bananas, walnuts, chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, and hot fudge, and a Fluffer Nutter, which was a waffle with chocolate ice cream, peanut butter, and marshmallow, and whipped cream. Truly divine!... More

We stayed in BB Harbor three nights and went to Wannawaf two out of three nights for ice cream or hot dogs. Kids enjoyed the ice cream and I tried the unusual hot dog toppings and was very pleased.

The dogs were great, as well as the ice cream + waffles. My son (10) said it is the, "best dessert he has ever had." He had the "Christmas in July" and my daughter had the "Sugar Daddy". So, so good and adorable ambiance. Outdoor picnic tables overlooking a picturesque harbor.

The girls were so vivacious as we walked by to get to our car. They were such little sales girls! My wife got a fresh waffle cone with some sort of chocolate chip ice cream? She said it was fantastic, I think she was eating it for about 20 minutes? Finally she couldn't finish it? But it was delightful and... More

What's not to love? Hot waffles with ice cream and all the fixing. A popular stop in Boothbay Harbor and a must for every visitor. Just bring a hearty appetite because the portions are large. They have many special waffle and ice cream sundae combinations, or you can create your own. And the price is excellent for what you get.

I tried this huge waffle, vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, whipped cream concoction and loved it! (It was in a basket, not the waffle shaped cone I expected). Many funky flavored and a playful menu.

This place is so good I don't know where to start. The staff is very cute and friendly, and the waffles are to die for! I recommend the good apple because it has their homemade apple pie filling on it. Not to be missed! Way better than any other ice cream place in town by far.

This place is a hot dog, coffee, ice cream, and waffle stand in downtown Boothbay Harbor. I got a waffle with ice cream, hot fudge, and PB sauce on top. My only complaint is that the waffle part could have been bigger. They make them fresh right there and put the ice cream on while it is hot.

It is an old fashioned treat and the waffles are real (not just a flattened waffle cone). You get a lot for your dessert buck as well!

This is a family favorite that we visit every time we are in Boothbay. The tricky part is deciding what to have. The hot dogs are fantastic but you can't miss the waffle sundaes!
