Three Local Spots to Celebrate National Waffle Day

Did you know that Aug. 24 is National Waffle Day? Well, now you do!

In honor of the tasty holiday, take advantage of one (or more!) of the many breakfast hot spots near your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. With the news that breakfast giant IHOP is abandoning its longtime focus for a more burger-friendly menu, perhaps one of these local breakfast spots can corner the market on early risers looking for delicious deals.

No matter how you like your waffles—plain, dressed up or maybe even sandwiching some ice cream—dine out and dig in this month! Here are a few of the breakfast standouts in our neck of the woods:


Minella’s: Minella’s, about 3.5 miles from your Canvas Valley Forge, provides the true diner experience. The local favorite boasts an extensive menu, including Belgian waffles. Grab them by themselves or pair your waffles with one of nine different breakfast meats, eggs, or top them with fresh blueberries, strawberries or bananas. If you’re cheating on your diet, spring for the ice cream-topped waffles.


Gateway Café: If you want a real taste of the area, visit Gateway Café, about 4.5 miles from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. In business for more than 30 years, Gateway has been specializing in breakfast for generations of locals. Its Belgian waffles come in a number of styles, including topped with glazed peaches or strawberries and whipped cream, or with yogurt, fresh fruit and granola.


Founding Farmers: Local and fresh are the priorities at Founding Farmers, just one block from your Canvas Valley Forge apartment. The farmer-owned restaurant makes almost all of its meals on-site, from scratch using locally grown and sourced ingredients. Waffle lovers have a range of options, including toppings like maple cinnamon syrup, blueberry compote or bananas foster. If you’re really bringing your appetite to breakfast, you can opt for the breakfast chicken with waffles, which also comes with eggs and homemade gravy.
