Waffles Are For Winners

Once the shining star of the Oklahoma City food truck fleet, local eatery Waffle Champion has traded in the wheels for real estate in the ever-expanding neighborhood of Midtown. But those who might be nostalgic for the days of eating waffles curbside at 24th and Walker need not fret that the switch to a brick-and-mortar location has changed the outstanding bill of fare.

Waffle Champion still offers a more traditional waffle experience – albeit with such exciting options as red chile pecans, roasted grapes and strawberry-anise compote – as well as gourmet waffle sandwiches, including buttermilk and sage fried chicken with maple reduction and crispy leeks, roasted garlic cauliflower mash with lemon crème fraiche and more.

If waffles aren’t your thing, opt for one of the decadent free-range egg bakers with duck confit or turkey chorizo, house waffle fries or green chile corn chowder. The restaurant also boasts the only Maine Root fair trade organic soda fountain in the state. This reasonably priced and scrumptious new establishment is poised to give other breakfast spots in downtown OKC major competition for gold.
