Great bfast with superior service. Great coffee too. Just be aware it's cash only and there is an arm near the entrance of the eatery. We were there at 7:30 am on a Sunday morning and it was already busy. It won't disappoint !

Stopped here for weekend brunch. Food is fresh, service fast, prices ok. There is always a line but somehow you don't wait too long to get in. I would recommend you visit when visiting Penn State campus.

I think that this is staple of State College. Great food and service. There was nothing left your imagination could ask for that wasn't on the menu. Huge portions, just be aware it's cash establishment.

The Waffle Shop is a must when visiting PSU! Its conveniently located right across the street from the campus. The food is plentiful, not too expensive, service is quick and it's delicious. Do not be turned off by the line outside as its moves fairly quickly. The only downside is that you can fell rushed (real or imagined?) to leave... More

Best place in town for a consistently awesome breakfast! Must pay with cash though. They have ATM's. They serve breakfast and lunch all day long. Hours limited though. They close at 3 pm.

So glad we stopped here with our daughter on our recent college visit. Just another reason to call this place Happy Valley. We arrived around 8:30 and were greeted and seated immediately. Our orders were quickly taken and coffee was served. We quickly had omelettes and red skin potatoes and they were not only filling but delicious! Can't wait to... More

My daughter and I went out to tour PSU and we couldn't start our visit any other way than at The Waffle Shop. I ordered my usual but always done right, two eggs over easy with a butter milk pancake. My daughter ordered a favorite, chocolate chip waffle. Her response to "How is it," was "I like that they the... More
