American Waffles in San Francisco?
I've been having a craving for ordinary AMERICAN waffles lately. Most Brunch places in San Francisco, if they have waffles AT ALL, only seem to have Belgian. And that's not a bad thing - Belgian Waffles are great. But what I'm craving lately is a blast from my past: Ordinary, square, American waffles (OK, they don't really have to be square), freshly made, with some real maple syrup! I'd prefer to NOT go to IHOP. I've been to quite a few Brunch places in San Francisco, but haven't been able to find this. Does anyone know of a place that serves American waffles?
To get plain American waffles, you have to go downscale and look for diners, not brunch places.
Look at Howard's on 9th/Irving and Seal Rock Inn on Geary/Point Lobos.
Modern Tea makes a lovely crisp American waffle on a vintage waffle iron. Check their website though - about a month ago they seemed to be closed for a leave of absence....
