“Sooo Slow!”

Black Coffee and Waffle Bar
Ranked #26 of 28 Dessert in Saint Paul
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Unbelievably slow. I mean unbelievable. Do not come here unless you have 2 hours to kill. Ordered 2 coffees and a waffle. 20 mins to get the coffees and well over an hour to get a waffle! At any given time there was only 1-2 tables eating. Rest of people sitting and staring off into the distance, seemingly questioning why they were still waiting. For a waffle.
Coffee was average as well. Disappointing visit.

I really like their waffles, however, it really is a waffles and coffee bar, don't expect anything else! Anyways, my favorite is the waffles with bananas and Nutella, it is delicious, especially if you pair it with their hot chocolate. No complaints here :)

Wasn’t busy today but waited 40 minutes. After finding out it would take another 15 minutes, we had to leave. Didn’t get a refund even though they hadn’t started cooking our waffles yet.

Wow! I’m not even a waffle person but this place was awesome. It’s self serve, in a way and self bus. You order at the corner and take your number to your seat if you can find one. Busy place. We were able to find a spot by the time we ordered. Drinks are shouted out once they are ready and you pick them up at the beverage bar. Food is brought out by a server. When your finished you take your dishes to a bussing station.
Waffles like I said were amazing. Only reason for 4 stars was the drinks. We order iced chai and a latte. Both us didn’t drink our beverages.
Love love love the waffles.

If you want to eat, and dont want a waffle, then dont go here, as that pretty much all they have. But, they are good waffles. Fair amount of fruit toppings. But, for me, only can do so much with a pricey waffle.
