Description: Nonna's is a family run business on Rehoboth Avenue operated by three generations of Italian women. We serve breakfast daily in addition to some of the best desserts on the Avenue! Stop in for breakfast and try our freshly prepared frittata (the Italian version of an omelette; started on the stovetop and finished in the oven), oatmeal prepared with steel cut oats, nuts, fresh fruit and brown sugar, our famous baked blueberry Challah french toast, stuffed croissants, bagels or choose from our assortment of fresh baked danish and donuts. And don't forget our Liege waffle - it's not just for dessert anymore. When you're ready for a sweet treat, Nonna's is the place to go. Everything is made from scratch on the premises, under the watchful eye of Nonna herself. From freshly made pizzelles, biscotti, and Italian cookies to Italian cheesecake, gluten free tiramisu, and our classic Italian Rum Cream Cake. We also have freshly prepared eclairs, cream puffs and Cannoli that can't be beat - we even make the shells. And for a truly unique sweet treat, try our Liege waffle. The Leige waffle is nothing like the Belgian waffles commonly available elsewhere. Named for a town in southern Belgium, the Liege waffle is made from a yeast dough and contains chunks of Belgian Pearl Sugar which caramelize on the outside of the delicious, buttery-sweet waffle. Enjoy it plain or top it with ice cream, fresh fruit or any combination of toppings to create a unique sweet treat!

“Belgian Pearl Sugar Waffle Sundae...YUM.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We have been to Nonna's several times this summer & each visit has been wonderful. The staff is so friendly & welcoming! We have tried the cannoli, strawberry shortcake & this time we had the waffle sundae. Everything has been delicious. The waffle sundae was no exception. We opted for the butterscotch vanilla ice cream (Bassett's) on our sundae, along with the whipped cream & cherry on top. We watched the waffle being made right before our very eyes. The gentleman there explained that the little sugar cubes that he was adding to the waffle dough were Belgian pearl sugar that caramelize inside the waffle as it cooks. The waffle was pretty good. It had a nice crispiness to it, yet was soft on the inside. It has great flavor and texture. The ice cream complimented it nicely.

Overall, we love Nonna's. Friendly folk, great food, clean dining room. We have had great experiences several times this summer. Can't wait to visit again next summer! Thanks for all the sweet treats, Nonna.

“Imported Pearl sugar carmalized on a real Belgium Waffle!!!!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

This place is far from your normal ice cream and waffle joint. I though I knew what Belgium Waffles tasted like. But after biting into this soft sweet piece of haven I knew I was wrong. The waffles come with your choice of fresh toppings and are made right in front of you. The Pearl shgar imported from Belgium is pressed right onto the dough prior to placing on the iron. This gives the waffles their nice light sweet crunch. PURE PERFECTION!!!

“Well worth it!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

I got 2 of the waffles during my stay. The S'Mores and the PB&J. The S'mores was OK, but the PB&J was really good. My wife & her sister got a couple of cakes and loved them.

It's everything everyone in the reviews below says it is. Fun family atmosphere, great food that keeps you coming back. Best waffles I've ever had. Only a matter of time before Guy Fieri stops by.
