When searching for something to eat on the Hill, there is no shortage of options to choose from. Burritos, burgers, Middle Eastern, Asian and now…waffles.
Taking over the spot on College Avenue where Crepes To Go-Go used to be, Waffle Brothers is serving up an interesting, and delicious, take on a breakfast staple.
The service is fast, the staff is friendly and the food is delicious. When this writer stopped by, she got the waffle with bananas and cinnamon sugar. It was a simple dish compared to some of the other options, but was nonetheless fantastic. The waffle was warm and crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and had just the right amount of richness.
Waffle Brothers is cheaper than most breakfast places in Boulder, ranging from $4.75 for the waffle with one topping of your choice to $8.50 for the “Waffle Breakfast Plate,” which features a waffle, two poached eggs, meat and a side of fruit. A major plus is that if you order one of the “Local Favorites,” your coffee is free. The portion sizes are also generous for the price; the waffle was about the size of two and half frozen waffles, and there were two sliced bananas on top covered in cinnamon sugar.
Waffle Brothers is open seven days a week, starting at 8:30 a.m. or 9 a.m. On Fridays and Saturdays, it’s open until 2:30 a.m, making it the perfect place to pick up food on your way to class or on your way home from the bars.
Whether fighting off a hangover or the drunk munchies, Waffle Brothers provides a cheap and fast breakfast (no matter what time of day). They have a huge selection of waffles to choose from, including sweet options like the “Allie Cat” (waffle, caramel, nuts, strawberry, whip cream) or savory ones such as the “Breakfast Sandwich” (two waffles with egg, meat and cheese). Of course, you can create your own waffle, with toppings like kiwi, nutella, cream cheese, chocolate chips and more.
It is often said that the hole in the wall places are the best, and Waffle Brothers is a testament to that. You can get every variety of waffle imaginable, and a lot of it without emptying your wallet. So next time you have to run out the door before eating breakfast or need something to fill your stomach after a night of beers and shots on the Hill, Waffle Brothers is the place to go.
