favorite waffles?

I really like Roscoes, and I used to like Mama's down Crenshaw, but I think they changed theirs a bit.

I really like Rosco's consistency, texture, and spice hints.

  1. The Cheddar Bacon Waffle at Uncle Bill's in Manhattan Beach is great.

      Cheddar Bacon waffle -- serious?
      That sounds SO good.

      1. re: Tripeler

        They also make Cheddar Bacon French toast too.

          Thanks, wienermobile. For me, the texture of the waffle with cheddar and bacon seems amazing.

          1. re: Tripeler

            fwiw, my advice is that you should try both, then make up your mind.
            each has it's own appeal.

      2. re: wienermobile

        the one time I went, I wasn't impressed, but a second chance w/ the right order appears in order!

      3. Chicken 'n waffles at Kincaids in Redondo Beach.

          thx heck, this is going on the list!

        2. I keep wanting to get to Coffee House Heyri on Hobart to try their Coffee Prince Waffle. I watched them build that place as we ate at Dong il Jang every couple of months through the construction phase.

            thanks. I've been to Heyri almost ten times but never had the waffle. great atmosphere in their backyard!

            1. re: tenxtone76

              Did they ever get water in their pond out back?

          2. I LOVE the Hickory Maple Waffle at The Peach Cafe in Monrovia. They also do a fantastic riff on the Eggs Benedict - theirs comes on a waffle with a cheese sauce. It is so good! The eggs benedict is on their specials menu.

              I forgot about that waffle! You're right, it's very good, as are all the breakfast items at the Peach.

              1. re: WildSwede

                great! I lived in Arcadia for a while . miss din tai fung and zelos. Trying the peach!

              2. Has anyone tried the Waffles de Liege truck that roams around (seems like they're usually around Long Beach). I've been wanting to check them out, but their hours and locations have not been too friendly.

                  Haven't tried the truck but I do love the Liege waffles at the Shaky Alibi. Tell the owner you want them just like you get them in Belgium, and not only will he give you one authentic Liege waffle, but he'll be your friend for life!

                    This truck is very good. These are the real thing. Pearls of sugar, nicely chewy and a bit caramelized. They're a little smaller than I'm used to, but I think that's done to accommodate carb-o-phobes. They also make excellent french fries with a small selection of sauces. I haven't
                    had better fries in LA. Since about 3 weeks ago they have been appearing at the Westwood farmer's market on Sundays.

                        If you're ever out in the Valley give More Than Waffles in Encino a test run.

                  2. My wife dropped by Lady Chocolat on Wilshire in West LA today and the owners mentioned to her that they now offer Belgian-style waffles at their shop. She didn't have the time to order some today, but she hopes to in the next couple of weeks. Has anyone else had a chance to sample these?

                          We've tried to eat breakfast there twice and both times it was too windy (no indoor seating). They sound a bit too messy to eat in the car . . . does the wind die down by lunch time?

                            I've tried two locations. Interesting suggestion. Will try. Compared to Roscoe's waffles?

                            1. re: tenxtone76

                              These are for dessert. Personally, I've never really cared for Roscoe's waffles, or chicken and waffles together, for that matter.

                                  Do you take the pics yourself? If so, bravo.

                                  And, yes, fortune cookie flavor is a good way to describe it.

                                    Thanks. The second one, the not nearly as good one, yes...that was mine. I'll second the recommendation of the Hong Kong Waffle at Tasty Garden.

                              2. The chicken & waffles at Wood and Vine (at the corner of H'wood and Vine). Amazing, amazing, amazing.

                                    How does it compare to Roscoes?

                                  2. The Liege waffles at Shaky Alibi are great - their gruyere-and-ham waffle is the perfect combo of savory and sweet. For more traditional waffles, I love the strawberries-and-cream waffle at the Griddle when berries are in season (they sometimes go a little overboard on the sour cream topping, but it's easy to scrape off).

                                    2. Hands down the best waffles I've found are at Central Park on Fair Oaks in Pasadena. Crispy, delicious, and they use real maple syrup. Excellent breakfast meats as well.
