Waffle Frolic is a restaurant that focuses on using waffles as the foundation for most of their various toppings. Very eclectic mix of sweet and savory choices. The menu is fairly diverse, but there is a "top ten" favorites list in the back wall to...More

Waffles! Sweet or Savory! But Waffles! We did the sweet - salted caramel ice cream with...wait for it...caramel and whipped cream. I 'shared' it with my spouse. Ok, I let him have a taste - that's sharing isn't it? Funky cool space. Funky cool people...More

Tasty waffles with dozens of permutations of toppings and styles from sweet to savory. We had one with Nutella and Strawberries, and one Raspberry Cheesecake style. Both were very tasty. Expect to wait a while during peak times but worth it.

My daughter and I enjoyed Waffle Frolic on a recent weekend get-away to Ithaca. Located in Ithaca Commons, it's a nice cross between a coffee house, and order-at-the-counter breakfast spot. We had Mr. Popular (fresh fruit, whipped cream and nutella on a waffle) and Chicken...More

This place is funky. I thought it was going to be a regular breakfast restaurant. It is a cross between a coffee house, fast food joint, bookstore and self serve breakfast place. The food was pretty good with so many sweet and savory waffle choices....More
