Dear Wafel,

About a month ago, I wandered in to your shop. I saw you on a stroll through the West Loop and wondered, ‘Hm, waffles?’ But you’re so much more than just mere waffles. You’re breakfast, all day. You’re lunch, with chicken sandwiches but instead of bread—you guessed it—it’s a waffle!

And all the coffee. I mean, serious coffee.

I don’t always like waffles for breakfast. But when you combine such delicious food options, how can one not fall in love?

Wafel, please stay.
