I’m going to make a bold statement here and say that The Waffle House is home to the best breakfast in St Albans.


If you speak to anyone about St Albans, I’d bet my bottom dollar that  9 times out of 10 The Waffle House will come up. Because of it’s fame it can be a bit tricky to get a table, but when you do it is well worth the wait.

The Waffle House is centred around a 16th Century Watermill  at the bottom  of Verulamium Park in a historic part of St Albans. The water wheel has been restored and still turns today with the sound of the water adding to the ambiance and occasionally making you need a wee.

The idea of a savoury waffle may seem a bit strange at first, but trust me, this place seriously lives up to it’s name.

The wholemeal waffles work perfectly with all the breakfast favourites. We had the sausage & beans and then the salmon & eggs. The combination of fresh waffles and top notch ingredients is a match made in breakfast heaven. The milkshakes also make for the perfect antidote to any excessive frivolities from the night before.

This place should be first on the list for any visit to St Albans.

  1. They’re waffles look delicious! Do they have vegan options yet?!

    • Not that I could see 😞.

      Their official line: We are not currently able to offer gluten-free, dairy-free or vegan waffles.

      However, many of our toppings are available without waffles, we offer rice and bread as an alternative for savoury dishes, a vegetarian soup, a seasonal salad and a range of ‘desserts in a bowl’ served without waffles.

      We make every effort to accommodate food allergies and dietary restrictions. Please ask your server for assistance when ordering so that we can help you to choose safely from our menu.

      • Bog standard answers, but it always come back to the same reasons (ones that they will never disclose). o_O Apart from trying to live a plant based lifestyle, my husband has a dairy allergy so we won’t be going there anytime soon… but thanks for the review JJ! Happy reviewing and have a great weekend! 🙂
