bad service, cold coffee, great breakfast, really sarcasticly nice simi, excellent waffles, mediocre food, really fun decor
My favorite Breakfast spot. I've been eating at the waffle for over a year every chance I get. So hard to find a great breakfast spot in LA. Most breakfast places are either dirty/low quality food (dennys, griddle, etc) OR too fancy and expensive (beverly hills hotel, etc). Something about the waffle is just the perfect balance. The food is excellent and you get what you pay for. The vibe of the room is cool and I love the upstairs secret bar. The best is sitting on the patio at lunch in the summer.
HOrrible........ Lets talk about waffle ....... about 7 of us went to this restaraunt after drinking .... we walk in it says wait to be seated we stood there for about 15mins then we finally sat ourselves... then we sit and wait for our menus . its 1:30 am saturday nite and 1 waitress????? what the hell.... so we get our amy winehouse look a like waitress and we order 30 mins later we get our drinks and our order..... horrible no refills and waited another 20 mins to pay our bill
You guys seriously charging this much for waffles?. $7 for two medium sized waffles with no sides. Yeah, I'm sure that's going to go far. I mean, I'd pay that much if the waffles rocked my world but they were just good. Not spectacular, not amazing... just good. For $7 I wanted more waffle or throw in a side of something.
Service ruined my morning!. We went here for an early-ish Sunday morning breakfast, which ended up being a terrible start to our day. The service was TERRIBLE. Waitress brought me a cup of coffee, then I waited 15 minutes to get the non-dairy creamer I asked for.... and by then my coffee was cold, so I asked for a fresh cup. Another 15 minutes pass before the fresh coffee comes. Meanwhile, people around us (and screaming, chaotic children everywhere) that came in long after us were getting their plates.... so we ask the manager to check on our food. He quickly returns with our plates, COLD AS LEMONADE. Really? Did we just endure 40 minutes of screaming kids and bad service to get COLD FOOD? We left. The menu looked yummy, but honestly I didnt even eat a bite of my food so I cant say whether it was actually tasty. If you come here, maybe get a coffee next door at coffee bean, then bring a microwave to warm up your plate when it finally arrives.
Horrible customer service and mediocre food.. A pretty lousy experience overall. We waited 35 minutes for our food to finally arrive. When it did, it wasn't fresh and hot, but warm-ish and slightly soggy. The manager apologized for the wait and told us that he'd "take care of the bill", then the waitress came out and apologized saying something about the kitchen being crazy and that she'd cut us a big break on the bill. I noticed two groups that came in after us, who ordered after us, get served before us. What kind of system of service is that? When we finally got the bill, they credited us a lousy 7 bucks. A pretty half-assed gesture considering the price of food in that place. On top of the really bad service, the food was mediocre at best. The hype precedes the quality of this place by a long-shot.
The Quiet Waffle.
I pass thru pretty often to get my usual which is the Four Cheese Hash with Grilled chicken (Super Yummy)...If Jinky Cafe was open as late as the Waffle i'd probably go there because i need more variety. The staff is simi friendly and many of them are really sarcasticly nice...wierdos. The Place is easy to miss but its a super cute set up....the biggest down fall is that there's no crowd at all. Everytime i go theres virtually no people....its sooo random! I've been there around dinner time in the week, around dinner time on the weekends, and even after the club on a few different occasions AND you would think with it being open so late it would be packed...instead everybody still goes to dennys a block away lol. I dont mind it not being crowded..it can b a plus BUT im a people watcher and it would just make it a little more interesting. They need to get there name out there a little more. Also even though i go often i have to admit it is a bit over priced!
On here under restaurant info it says 'People Watching' ,'Cheap Eats' , and 'Valet Parking' ....i would save this is all a negative!!! I have never seen Valet unless you count the parking lot in the back that charges $8 bucks when they tell u to park your own car since the lot is so small... and the walk is far for Valet. You might as well park at the meters directly infront. That Valet is such a rip off!
McDonalds is better. Go with a full wallet and Don't go hungry, the sample or should I say the servings will leave you hungry. We ordered the waffle and we were given 2 tiny squares and over priced. We decided to try a few other items as well all very small or and nothing t talk about. We had to order sides since nothing came with the waffle and what did was might have been hidden under the tiny waffle because i did not see it. The food took for ever to get to us and with the bill for 4 people to have a normal amount of food(lees then IHOP) was way over priced. Poor Quality Food, Over PricedI would Rather wait for a table at The Griddle Cafe on Cresent Hights and sunset the walk in here and get a table right away.
I'd rather go to IHOP. the burger was so sloppy i had to eat the ingredients separately. the female cashier (wish i had got her name) was rude and careless, when my friend had ordered a kid's meal to-go she refused to service. when i had told her it was for her son, she snapped, "she does't have kids".. can you believe that? waffles are decent but i would never go back there EVER!
Excellent waffles, cool decor.....for a price.
I had breakfast at The Waffle on Tuesday, September 23rd at about 8:30 a.m. They have a nice outside seating area, and the decor is really fun. I ordered the pecan waffle and a side of bacon. The waffle was excellent, perfectly cooked it was nice and fluffy. The pecans were carmelized I believe and were excellent. The bacon was thick, well cooked (i.e. not a raw pile of fat and grease) and had a maple flavor.
All in all, a great breakfast, though I found that I needed two waffles to satisfy my hunger, and with the bacon that brought the bill to $25, which was a bit steep. If I had refrained from waffle #2 I was still looking at about $15.
Overall, I will definitely go back, but wish it was cheaper so I could afford to go a few times per week. Maybe they should have a "frequent Waffler card" so regulars wouldn't go broke there!
Waffles get the Hollywood treatment at this late-night retro-style diner..
With a nod to the famed waffle chain The Waffle House, this Sunset Strip diner keeps it kitschy-cool with an easygoing attitude and mod twist. The morning crowd includes 20-somethings tending hangovers with coffee and carbs as well as families with babies in tow. You can opt for eggs and other breakfast or lunch fare, but the waffles are where it's at. Try one with Applewood bacon baked inside, or another with blueberry sauce and lemon curd, or a multigrain version with yogurt and fresh fruit. If you've got a different sort of breakfast in mind, grab a cocktail in the upstairs bar--just be warned it gets pretty packed on weekends during the wee hours when all the bars have closed.
