Had a plain waffle and a cup of coffee. It really hit the spot. I look forward to having a waffle with the works (strawberries, whipped cream etc). I work nearby and the good smell just kills.

Finally had the opportunity to try this while my husband and I enjoyed sharing the fresh waffle, no toppings, still delicious in our opinion. The service ordering was painful almost uncomfortable, I left and wandered about while my husband stayed close on received the order,...More

The owner of this place must really hate his own business. The service was terrible. They don't smile at all, just being robots with super cold faces. They are not aware of "friendly service". If you hate serving people, please hire someone else do it...More

We are very proud to say that Wannawafel inspired and changed the way Canadians think about waffles after appearing on the very popular CBC show Dragons'Den. Now waffles can be an all day snack, no it doesn't always need Maple Sirup. We bake them fresh, it is fine to have a waffle without a topping. Lets try it. In our business it is all about the waffle and the people who serve them, all for you.
