We made a reservation before we went and were glad we did. We visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon, and the restaurant was teeming with people (incidentally, there was filming related to one of the Real Housewives--Atlanta, maybe--while we were there). The restaurant honored our reservation and even sat us before the last member of our party arrived. The food... More

I'm used to getting an oversized fluffy waffle. The waffle I got was on the smaller side, little dense and hint of sweetness. Surprisingly it was the perfect size, the coffee was also perfect. Staff were very friendly. I'm glad I stopped. Great spot.

We were so hot we just needed to sit down and came in. We were not sorry. We had the vegetable crepe and smoked salmon which were so tasty. We had the strawberry waffle desert and Gelato with espresso poured over. Great beer selection too and service was superb.

Great food with a menu that includes many different dishes. I have to eat gluten free and they had a wonderful crepe I thoroughly enjoyed. I definitely plan to visit a gain soon.

We had 5 adults and 3 small children. They seated us outside. Might have been too hot for some in July but since we are from MS that was fine. Atmosphere and service were good. Food was good.

I love so many of the menu items but tend to have terrible service here (one exception out of 10). It works when you need breakfast late in the day if you don't mind a potentially lengthy wait.

And this is day two so I want to be fair. The place is beautiful and our server was great. I had a really delicious chocolate and whipped cream waffle but it was really small for $8. My friend had the Italian Crepe. The filling was nice but the savory batter was dry and needed some sauce on top. We... More

Can't describe the difference between a regular waffle and a Belgium waffle. Taste of Belgium waffle. The batter is the difference. It's the caramelization of the batter from cooking. Yum. Yum. Yuuuumm. Worth the trip every time.

We had crepes, vegetable and banana/Nutella. They were fresh, wonderful. You can watch them prepared right in front of you. Excellent food.

Description
Taste of Belgium serves Belgian food with a twist. If it's not Belgian, we "Belgianize" it. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and one-of-a-kind weekend brunch. We have a full bar and a wide selection of Belgian beers on draft and in bottle. And we serve the absolute best waffles.
