Has anybody heard about this place. Everything is made either in or on a waffle. Even the bacon is dipped in waffle batter and deep fried. Here is the link:

    It's really good. I don't think they had the waffle bacon when we were there but the carmelised bacon was very good. Actually headed there last weekend but went to the Brick Kitchen instead. Mistake.

      Thanks crawfish. It's weird, but I hadn't heard of this place until today.

      And you didn't enjoy White Brick Kitchen? That's one of my favourite places!! What didn't you like about it?

        re. Brick Kitchen
        We went because we wanted waffles and they didn't have waffles on the menu that day. My scotch eggs were great but the toasted/fried baguette slice under them was very tough so I had to dismantle the dish to eat it. My son's banana bread French toast with caramelised bananas and chocolate chips was not caramelised bananas they were bananas in caramel sauce. The dish was so sweet it was sickening even for a 12 year kid. And there were no chocolate chips. My husband liked his hash.
        So it wasn't bad but our memory of Starving Artist was much better so Brick Kitchen suffered in comparison. Really we are more breakfast people than brunch people. I don't like dessert for breakfast. But when we went to Starving Artist I thought "Hey, I like this brunch thing" and after the Brick Kitchen I thought, "See? This is why I don't like brunch."

          Oh I see. And I love dessert for breakfast. I think that the banana bread french toast, is one of the best dishes ever. But I do get the caramel sauce on the side, and dip the banana bread in sparingly.

            But real caramelised bananas would be SO good! I'm going to have to make it myself :)

        So, it's not a destination place?

          Not bad. But not destination for me.
