First, you have to love a restaurant that is only open for breakfast and lunch, as you just KNOW they are breakfast lovers, and will put out a quality breakfast.  Second, if the restaurant is open at the crack of dawn, say six in the morning, that's a BIG plus.  So if you're an "early bird," like I am, and a lover of breakfast, you'll just LOVE Waffle Square, located on Harding Blvd. in Roseville, as they serve a delicious breakfast, and they're open early, REALLY early in the morning.

Photo:  During my morning walks, I occasionally pass by Waffle Square, and the $4.99 Ham & Eggs breakfast always looks interesting.  On Thursday, September 25, 2014, my good intentions got the better of me, and I paid a visit to this charming restaurant, to enjoy a delicious breakfast, at a great price.

Photo:  As you walk in the restaurant, there is a small souvenir area, complete with a machine with a claw that will allow you to grab a stuffed animal, as you feed the beast with quarters.  That's not my "thing," as I prefer to eat, rather than to play.  As I walked through the souvenir area, I was greeted by Leann, who would be my hostess, on this early Thursday morning.

Photo:  The main dining room, as you look back toward the breakfast counter.  It's 0700 on a rainy Thursday morning, and currently, I'm the only customer in the restaurant.

Photo:  Back in June, 2010, the now-defunct Sacramento Breakfast Club paid a visit to Waffle Square, and management was so impressed with the article we published, they printed it, and posted a laminated copy of it in the restaurant!  As of today's visit, it is still on the wall.  To read the complete article, click on this link.

Photo:  Leann delivers my breakfast with a smile.  She didn't really want her photo taken, as she said it was "too early in the morning," but I managed to snap her photo anyway.  The window to the kitchen is at the rear of the photo.  Leann and a chef were the only employees who were working during the time of my visit, so it gave me ample time to chit-chat with Leann.  She said mornings are usually slow until around 0800, which the regulars start coming in.

Photo:  When I dine alone, I prefer to sit at the counter, as it's easier to mingle with the staff, and observe them in action.  Friendly Leann snapped my photo, after she delivered my breakfast.  Service was lightning fast, as from the time I ordered my breakfast until the time it was delivered to me was only about five minutes.

Photo:  I ordered the "Ham & Eggs Special," for $4.99, as noted by the sign in front of the restaurant.  By the time coffee and tax was added, the price came to $7.50, exactly, which is still a good price for a full breakfast, especially considering the quality and quantity of the delicious breakfast I enjoyed today at Waffle Square.  As usual, I ordered my eggs over easy, and I was offered hash browns or country potatoes - I chose hash browns - several varieties of toast - sourdough for me - and a slab of ham.  Unlike some of the reviews of this restaurant that I've read on Yelp, my meal was delicious, and perfectly cooked, and surpassed my expectations of a wonderful breakfast.

You can't beat the price of the "Ham and Eggs Special," nor can you beat the quality of the breakfast.  Add to the value the friendly service, the comfortable surroundings, and you'll find that Waffle Square is a must-to destination in Roseville, to enjoy a quality breakfast.
