I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – brunch is a treasured Saturday ritual for me. I’ve been on a nice streak lately where I’ve gotten to enjoy brunch in OKC the past three or four Saturdays in a row- it has been awesome!
I love being in OKC. It is home.
I also love that OKC has a growing supply of local restaurants, and many of them do brunch quite well. Today I will highlight one of my favorite local brunch spots in all of Oklahoma:
You already know what this place is king of: waffles.
Who doesn’t love a good waffle? Everyone loves waffles, and let me tell you – these waffles are GOOD. No, they are GREAT.
I have never had a waffle with such a perfect mix of amazing texture that is so fluffy and soft yet also the perfect taste of light sweetness and bread-y delight. Waffle Champion’s batter is just impressive. It really is something.
My go-to order is the regular waffle, with fresh berries on top. It is to die for. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. This picture isn’t going to help.
WC has all different types of food options with the word “waffle” in it- traditional waffles with toppings and syrup, craft waffle sandwiches, even loaded waffle French fries. If you are looking for a healthy treat, this may not be your place. They do have soup and salad options, but it will be hard to stick with a healthy option when you walk in and smell the sweet buttery aroma of their batter baking in the waffle machines all lined in a row.
So, if you are ready to have a “cheat day”, or just don’t care, then I suggest you stop what you are doing right now and head on over to this waffle lovers heaven on earth. (As long as it’s Tues-Sun, 7am-2pm… their hours don’t leave a lot of option for me except for the weekend!)
I always appreciate fun drink options wherever my brunch taste buds may take me. WC has a nice selection including handcrafted sodas, cold press juice, milkshakes with Roxy’s local ice-cream, elemental coffee and other typical brunch place drinks.
Where WC isn’t lacking for fantastic food, they could, in my opinion, use a better atmosphere. Unless you like the fast pace, bustling, loud setting. The shop itself is quite small, so the line is almost always out the door any time I go on Saturday. Thankfully they have a well-organized system of getting people through the line and getting guests a table. Still, if you were planning to sit and sip on your coffee, you may plan to sip a little faster as you stare at the line of people waiting for a table and a waffle. In my experience, the line doesn’t slow down until well after 1pm most Saturdays.
The latest addition to WC is their outside seating option. This is new in the past few months. It has helped to add a few more tables as well as offer a quieter seating option. The tables are shaded, so even in the summer months it isn’t bad as far as the heat goes (especially if you are there early).
All in all, this place is one of my top two favorites for local brunch in OKC. If you haven’t tried it yet, make it a priority. Keep in mind their hours as well as the fact that parking can be tricky. It is well worth it though.
Maybe I’ll see you there…
