“Simple, good with excellent service”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The waitress is efficient and professional and I had my order of eggs and waffles in a jiffy, cooked perfectly, with a never ending cup of coffee. What's not to like?

“Good waffles...but not great waffles”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Tried this thinking if you want some good waffles, then why not go to a place that seems to have built its success on them? This restaurant has reportedly been around for over 50 years. The menu is certainly extensive with a variety of breakfast staples centred around pancakes and - of course - waffles, as well as a number of standard comfort food lunch and dinner items like club sandwiches, burgers, meatloaf and even liver (yum). Being our first time visit, we went for waffles. I tried the Waffle House Special (two eggs, hashbrowns, two bacon, two sausage and a "classic" waffle - although it was not clear what a non-classic waffle is). My wife had the Big Waffle Breakfast (two eggs, choice of meat, and a waffle). The servings were generous but not over-the-top and came hot. While our eggs (mine sunny and hers poached medium) were cooked to perfection, the bacon was salty and crispy. The large waffles, served one each on a separate plate, were fresh but nothing to cry out for. They came with a small cup of creamed butter and a pre-packaged serving (only one) of syrup. You would think that a restaurant marketing itself on waffles could do a bit better with fresher syrup, more choices (ie. IHOP) or even higher-quality syrups like genuine maple which was not an option. Had also hoped to find something more exotic based around fresh waffles (ie. a burger between waffles; eggs benny on waffles instead of muffins; or more imaginative toppings). Given most of the clientele when we were there were seniors, it is possible that the owners have stuck with a tried and true menu based on that demographic. While the staff were certainly friendly, they could do a bit better on the coffee service. Refills were few and far between at a time when the restaurant was not busy. Overall, was not a disaster but just a tad disappointing. If you like fresh waffles, give it a try. Just don't build you hopes up too high.

Very reasonably priced; good food, but not so vegetarian friendly unless all you want are the most excellent waffles..
