Starving Artist #wafflewednesday

Every day is waffle day at Starving Artist, where the entirety of the menu is inspired by glorious and delicious waffles! They offer a wide variety of sweet and savory waffle creations and have a gluten free and vegan waffle readily available to be substituted.



I had perused the menu ahead of time which made it easier for me to choose from their huge selection of waffle-y goodness! I chose the BLT waffle sandwich subbing in the gluten free/vegan waffle, opting for avocado over bacon and adding an egg (which, after I saw the size of the sandwich, I realized the egg addition was unnecessary). Corbin got the Breakfast Benny and my friend Mel got the western waffle. The savory waffles come with a side of mixed greens and your choice of fruit, baked beans or potato salad.


Breakfast Benny
Everything was gigantic and amazing. I loved their gluten free / vegan waffle! It was crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and had a bit of sweetness from the banana that they use in the batter. Both Mel and Corbin were happy with their choices and enjoyed every bite. They also have an assortment of dessert waffles, mini waffles (for snacks and smaller appetites) and an option to 'make your own' with a variety of topping choices. Starving Artist also offers a wide selection of drinks from teas and coffee to smoothies and giant milkshakes and they're also licensed for those who would like a beer or mimosa with their waffle. Corbin decided on a strawberry milkshake (which made our server giggle).

Everything was super tasty, the service was pretty efficient and it was awesome that they had gluten free / vegan options that are readily available. Our server was knowledgeable about gluten free / vegan things, letting me know that there was gluten in the potato salad, which was appreciated. I can't wait to head back to try out some of the dessert waffle options and maybe check out their new second location.

Starving Artist has two Toronto locations: 582 Lansdowne Ave and 1078 St. Clair Ave.W for all your waffle needs on a Wednesday or not!
