Funk ‘n Waffles (Restaurant)

Funk ‘n Waffles (Syracuse)

I went to Funk ‘n Waffles last weekend.  My housemate and I have been dying to go and what better night than a Friday (because we can still be back to watch TLC at night).  We are both are waffle obsessed and Funk ‘n Waffles was actually on man versus food. It’s been on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. Plus owner, Adam Gold, does a great job hosting bands and live music.


Funk ‘n Waffles Atmosphere: 

To give you a brief overview, Funk ‘n Waffles is a small little café across from Syracuse campus that serves waffles.  Funk ‘n Waffles has a lot of different combinations (and many that inspired me).  They also have live bands as well but we weren’t going to be in town then so we just went for dinner.  I’d also assume it’s a real hit for people hungover to go and get their carbs the day after as well.

When I saw they sold coffee mugs, I needed to buy one for my collection. I appreciate a good coffee mug, especially from a local restaurant.


Funk ‘n Waffles Food:

The Funk ‘n Waffles menu has all types of waffles from sweet to savory. If you want a regular waffle with syrup, Funk ‘n Waffles has that too.

At Funk ‘n Waffles, I decided to go with one of the savory waffles. I know I’ll be back to get a sweet waffle.

I decided to get the “Florentine” which was salmon, feta and spinach.  Then I decided to be creative and get a buckwheat base.  I’ll tell you; it did not disappoint.  I wish there had been a bit more salmon on it, but that’s okay; the food was less than 10 dollars so I can’t complain.

Funk ‘n Waffles Conclusion:

I think for me if I had gone to Syracuse, I would have probably been down here a lot more than I should.  Not only is the food at Funk ‘n Waffles great, but the atmosphere is just as cool.  It’s “funky” and has that band scene vibe which I enjoy.  Funk and Waffles also hosts a whole slew of open mic events so if that is your scene and you are in Syracuse…well, I recommend it.  Or if you just like waffles (like me).
