Ok let's get straight to it. They do waffles, lots and lots of every kind I could imagine and then some. Are they good? Yup they ruddy well are. Does it suit those slimmer minded types? Yes I think you can eat in there without fear of leaving very much heavier than when you arrive. All manner of healthy options... More

It was a cold and raining Monday January lunchtime and we were in St Albans. The Waffle House had been recommended to her by friends recently and I'd had a South African colleague love this place a few years ago. Its on the outskirts of St Albans and has its own car park, which is a good thing since parking... More

If you like waffles, you'll love this place. Get a milkshake if you think you'll have the space and try getting there before 12 to get the breakfast menu. Be warned if you're close to 12 the queue means you won't get in in time.

I ordered scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, the salmon was lovely but the eggs were "wet", my partner ordered the waffle stack with butter, this arrived as 2 halves of waffles with 2 small packs of Lurpak on the side ???? We... More

We Took our 90 year old mother as this is one of her favourite places in St Albans to eat for breakfast. It did not disappoint first class scrambled eggs and bacon served on a waffle. Even at 10am on a cold Friday in Jan was pretty full that say it all.

Been a fan of the Waffle House for a long time and coming here for as long as I can remember. Breakfast is definitely the best meal on offer here and the milkshakes are some of the best I've had. Service is always good, would recommend arriving early if you don't wish to wait for a table.
