They have the best service and food in town. It's worth the wait if there is a line. They have specials everyday of the week.

We ate breakfast at the Waffle Shop in State College for our anniversary. The place appeared to be packed, but we were seated at a booth immediately. I always get a waffle with strawberries and whipped cream and it was delicious as usual. My husband had eggs, toast, bacon and a pancake and was stuffed when finished. The food has... More

The Waffle Shop has to be one of the best breakfast venues ever! There is usually lines on Sunday mornings but I have rarely seen anyone turn away because you expect that at Waffle Shop. The turn over is usually fast so you never wait long! On this day four of us had ordered some of our favorites and the... More

Always a great place to eat breakfast or lunch! The tuna melt is my favorite! Great fast service. They need to start accepting credit cards.

We were in Stage College for the weekend and on the way out we stopped at the Waffle Shop for breakfast. From the outside the place doesn't look like anything special and the decor inside is very 1980s, however my husband who is an alum told me the food would be good. The bacon was thick and perfectly cooked. My... More

Maybe it was late in the day, but the waffles were dry and not flakey like those I've had elsewhere. $40 including tip for 3 waffles and 3 drinks... not a bargain. Maybe we'll try it again.

The line of folks waiting to get in was a little daunting but we found that it moved quickly. Busy, busy restaurant with the complete breakfast selection you'd expect. Waffles were crispy and delicious. Breakfast potatoes were perfect. Definite recommend.

We NEVER miss a stop at the Waffle Shop when visiting Penn State. Don't let the line that forms outside scare you away. Even on busy weekends, the wait isn't bad and once inside the food is fantastic. Yes, it is breakfast (there is also a lunch menu), but is is so good. Don't skip the fresh squeezed orange juice...
