The Awful Waffle in Provo, Utah

Update: Awful Waffle has moved to a larger, indoor location: 602 E 600 N in Provo. They now serve savory crepes, pizza, and gelato. I'll have to do a re-post soon!


Oh I like this place.

For one, I love breakfast.
For two, I could eat breakfast all day.
For three, I like my waffles loaded.

Low prices. Quality food. 
All fruit toppings are fresh, never frozen.
Now I want to order every single topping on top of one waffle. The Works perhaps?

Let's not debate & compare to a certain waffle place in the county to the North of us.
They're both good & there's plenty of room in my belly for both.

Plus, we're talking about Utah County here.
If I happen to live in Spanish Fork, I'll choose 15 minutes rather than 50 minutes.
It's either The Awful Waffle--which is really far from awful--or the IHOP.

No. More. Nasty. Common. Chains. Please.

The pictures could almost speak for themselves.
The waffle, sweet & crispy--but not too crispy--on the outside, soft on the inside. 

From left to right: 
1. Waffle w/ melted peanut butter & fresh sliced strawberries.
2. Waffle w/ nutella & fresh sliced bananas.
3. Crepe w/ fresh raspberries, crushed graham crackers, & speculoos spread (tastes like a Teddy Graham sauce). Does the crepe have a hint of lemon in the batter? I loved it & I loved the speculoos!


  1. That looks delicious!!

    And are you by chance talking about Bruges Waffles & Frites?? Love that place.

  2. I just found your blog through the Awful Waffle Facebook page and I have to say, I am loving your blog and hope you keep up with reviewing places in Provo/Utah county! I'm always looking for new places to eat =] And your pictures are great, which only helps convince people to go to these places. Keep up the good work!!

  3. Wow, this is what I'm missing? We must eat there when I'm in town. I'm such a breakfast girl, too.

  4. I just feel like they should serve falafel too.

  5. I have never even heard of this place, but I will definitely be checking it out now!!

  6. I'm so excited to try some of these places! I've lived in Utah County my entire life and it's fun to hear of new places to eat! You need a suggestion page for readers to suggest places for you to review!

  7. I love this place! Of course I'm not picky when it comes to fruit on my waffles :) Also, I found your blog from a comment on my sis-in-laws (The Yellow House) And because I'm such a blog stalker and live in Utah Valley I will definitely be following!

  8. I thought I might find this somewhere in your archives! I'm a previous employee/future employee (going back in fall), and I loved working there, mostly just because I believe in real food that tastes amazing. They're moving/expanding at the end of the summer, which is so exciting! Best waffles and DEFINITELY the best crepes in town (which, btw, don't have any lemon in the batter - just vanilla and some other secret ingredients to die for).

    1. I still love the Awful Waffle. Thanks for the clarification on the lemon!
