I didn't expect this place to be as good as it was! It was pretty delicious. We got the florentine waffle and the artichoke and red pepper grilled cheese sandwich to start, both of which were very good - I would recommend more hollandaise on...More

Had breakfast there this weekend. Very innovative idea. Understand that everything is served on a waffle. Watched a couple of visiting Ithaca parents (everything they wore said Ithaca College) come in and order eggs, bacon and waffle and be upset that the eggs and bacon...More

The staff are courteous, the service is great, and the food is absolutely wonderful. The fact that you can customise your order is fantastic, but that being said, for first-timers, any choice from the menu is top notch.

All things waffle! You can (probably) get a plain waffle, which is delicious, but you can also get so much more. Eggs and bacon on a waffle for breakfast, so good. Waffle with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate & salted caramel sauce, to die for....More
