Small and nothing fancy but good food. There was a short wait for a table but no waiting at the counter. Good spot if you are just looking for a simple breakfast. By far the best thing we ordered was the churro waffle.

Mr. Waffle invites you to gorge on fabulous blueberry waffles, and every other possible breakfast food, including some Mexican dishes. Even the oatmeal is good, with raisins and brown sugar on the side. Gets pretty busy on weekends.

Based on the fluffy texture, I would guess the batter does include eggs. It wouldn't hurt to ask. Their menu has a wide variety of other choices.

There really shouldn't be any significant amount of traffic at that time of the day since the usual morning rush hours to work are pretty much over by 9:00 AM.
