Waffles?

Is there a good place in the cities to go and get good waffles? Or cheap waffles at least.

  1. Cheap with waffles and not half bad, Copper Dome off of Randolph in St. Paul. This was my Sunday place to go for brunch as I went to college at St. Kate's just down the road. They were like $5 or $6 when I went last.

    1. Copper Dome is a neighborhood spot and it's cheap, but too much of the food seems to have come from Sysco. The first (and last) blueberry pancakes I ever had there came with "fruit" dumped on top that exactly resembled canned pie filling.

      This may be in someone's neighborhood and it's probably not cheap, but here is a new option for waffles: http://blogs.mspmag.com/foodiefile/20...

      Haven't tried it -- looking forward to having someone report back!

        The report of that waffle truck has me in an absolute tizzy! Yes, please - anyone seeing it please report back. I may even have to road trip to Marine on St. Croix.

        1. re: Seige

          I saw that truck on Sunday afternoon in Marine...I was wondering what it was, then I see the MSP Mag article. It didn't look like it was actually serving on Sunday, but maybe that will change.

          The charm of Copper Dome is definitely not in the food, alas.

        3. Barbette has tasty Belgian waffles served with blueberry compote and lemon curd.

          1. Al's Breakfast, hands down. Bacon waffle, with their fake butter and yummy not-maple syrup. Oh, sweet and salty heaven. Cheap, also, no more than $6.

              +1 for the bacon waffle at Al's. So so good. Except the one time mine was burnt on one side, which I pointed out and it was immediately remade and free.

              But what do you mean by fake butter? While I did know that Al's counter syrup is homemade but not tree-squeezed, I thought the butter was, indeed, cow-squeezed...

              1. re: baronworm

                I believe that the counter "syrup" is called Mapleine ("One 2 oz package makes 24 pints!")... Blech - I go for the *real* stuff at Al's...

              2. re: daniellempls

                Whoo hoo for the Bacon Waffle! One of life's little treats... *sigh*

                BTW, you can ask for Real Maple Syrup for +$1. Why wouldn't you?

              3. Mickey's Diner malt waffles. Seriously.

                  +1 on Mickey's waffles, everyone at our table was impressed by those babies.

                2. They make a pretty good waffle at Victory 44 Coffee and Provisions (the coffee shop next door to Victory 44)

                  Their hot food menu is still really limited - rarely more than the waffle and the eggwich. But both are well worth having. (Of course, I can walk there from my house, but if you're looking for waffles, they're pretty darn good!)

                  1. We need a Waffle House around these parts. ...or I need to get to Kansas City more often.

                      My two experiences with Waffle House have been horrible. I could see this place as a post bar drunken stop, at best. In both cases, the waffles weren't even hotel continental breakfast quality.

                      1. re: BigE

                        Yep. The post bar crowd is definitely the Waffle House market.

                    2. My friend swears by the savory waffles at the Birchwood.
