A favorite family dining experience. The coffee & juices taste fresh. The serve staff is really great and the Greek Omlette is the best dish on the menu. Regardless of the volume of guests, the food is served hot and quickly. One of the best breakfast & lunch venues in State College!

We had heard many good things about the Waffle Shop so we had to try it. The food ( waffles and egg benedict) was very good and we had no complaints. Cups of coffee were small but waitresses were available to keep them topped off. It was good not great but very good.

Very pleasant experience. With my 9 year old granddaughter. Hostess very gracious. Waitress very accommodating and friendly. Food is average quality, what is expected for the items.

If it were'nt for the weekend lines, i'd eat breakfast there every morning while visiting PSU. We luckked out with the timing of the rain on Sunday morning. No wait for table of 8. Tiffany was one of the best servers we had all weekend. Food is always very good, but consistently having it quick, fresh, and hot is so... More

A great place to taste the many selection of waffles along with other selections of eggs as your preference. A wonderful place to dine in. The staff are so welcoming and dynamic.

The service is excellent and efficient. If you go at peak times, there may be a long wait. They are consistently prompt and have a lot of experienced staff who stay a long time - makes a difference! Food is consistently good. This is probably the best place in town for a very good breakfast - anytime until 2 pm.

It's the best breakfast in State College. There are lines on weekends, but they move fairly quickly. Football weekends are really packed, so get there early.

This packed local cafe that serves be the 1000s has terrific breakfast fare! The waffles are supreme and the service efficient. The decor is clean and recreates the 1970s without even knowing it.

Do you like breakfast? If so go no further than the Waffle a house. A local favorite of many because it's that good. The only drawback is you may need to loosen the drawstring on your pants. The food isn't diet friendly but who cares. Hats off to a perfect 10 breakfast. In europe you would have 3 Michelin stars!

Super busy, long wait but totally worth it. Don't come here if you are in a rush. Waffles, pancakes, eggs it all was great.

Thank Linz0718
