Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We walked by this place several times and were intrigued. So this morning we made a point to skip our hotel breakfast and try a wafel. So glad we did! We ordered a WMD (Waffle of Mass Deliciousness) and it was ready in just about...a minute. It was absolutely delicious, made even better by eating at a table and watching the world walk by. We will be back again...and again...and again!More

Decadent without being gluttonous. Tasty and fairly brief breakfast for our morning on the go. Outdoor kiosk like on the corner of the park, so exclusively outside seating.

Chocolate? Caramel? Whipped cream? Nuts? Belgian waffles? Bananas? Any combination thereof? Simply delightfully delicious!

Best waffle I’ve ever had and probably ever will have in my life. I added Nutella to the liege waffle. Buy 3.

Situated on the Hudson River Park, opposite pier 45. Busy little place. We stopped off for a bottle of Prosecco. Reasonably priced considering it’s NYC. Just a shame you only get plastic cups hence I’ve marked the place down. We didn’t sample the waffles or...ice cream. Great spot for people watching. The guy who served me was very friendly, his green painted fingernails complemented his personality. Music plays in the seated area which wasn’t too loud initially but did get louder so don’t sit under one of the speakers if this offends. I think It is non smoking and assume that’s because it in the park & I believe smoking is banned in parks! Worth a visit.More

hi there - thanks so much for reviewing our Pier 45 kiosk. We're happy you had a mostly positive experience (except maybe for that loud speaker!). We hope you can come back another day and have an even better experience, one that warrants 4 stars...More

These tricky little carts and small shops are located strategically throughout the city to taunt you. We visited Belgium and haven’t had Liege waffles this amazing since. I had the one with spekuloos and whipped cream on it and it was to die for. Just...don’t make the mistake of buying a jar of it and trying to bring it back in your carry on. TSA will throw it in the trash in front of you and break your heart into a millions pieces. It also saved me many calories, so thank you kind TSA agent. Don’t miss this place! And you can order their stuff online. I wish I had known that before my sad purchase. 😂More

I was looking forward to having the savory De Wake Up, Grumpy again. That is the reason to come to this location. To my disappointment, all savory items have been removed from their menu. Only adding their jars of spreads and tasting sticks to sample,...the set-up was the same as far as the prep area goes. The sitting area, was drastically reduced by a curtain. A sliver is open to show the sign for the bathroom. So what's behind the curtain? Their office. My fiance and I ended up getting a De Bom. Dejected, we only managed to finish off the waffle and some of the ice cream. Here's to hoping the savory dishes will make a come back in the future.More

We stopped at the food truck in Times Square. Ordered “Da Throwdown Wafle”, a light, crispy waffle topped with spekulos cream, gooey whipped cream, and cookie crumbs. So delicious, I want more!

We've visited a Wafels & Dinges kiosk (I don't remember exactly where). The food is just so good, and for a fair price (considering it's NYC). Totally worth it if you want something sweet.

We were at the Bryant Park skating rink and there was a mobile location of this store. We were sitting out in the 20 degree weather while our teens skated.
