The Waffle Experience
4391 Gateway Park Blvd. 916-285-0562
This Natomas eatery offers, as its name suggests, quite the experience. Take, for instance, the flat-screen TVs showing executive chef Michael Donoho at work in the kitchen, or the waffle-centric menu of cleverly named creations like the Benedict Arnold (atop a savory apple waffle), the juicy “We Found the Beef” burger (with an herb waffle bun) and the Bananarama with fresh bananas, house-made vanilla pudding, fresh whipped cream, walnuts and agave syrup on a Liège waffle. Curious what other diners think of the warm atmosphere (courtesy of touches like 150-year-old reclaimed wood on the walls and extra-friendly service) and the waffles? Read the plaudits for the restaurant, which was founded by a pair of Marine Corps veterans, scrawled on a wall-sized chalkboard panel near the front door. At the end of your meal, you may just find yourself adding your own glowing message there.
