Best Places for Waffles in McHenry County
414 State Rte. 31, McHenry | (815) 344-4055
Two words: Churro waffle. This place has a huge selection of not only waffles, but pancakes, crepes, omelets, and so much more. I can say without a doubt, that this place is completely worth the trip.
Burnt Toast Cafe
2520 Bunker Hill Dr., Algonquin | (847) 854-9552
Taffy. Apple. Waffle. Yep, let that sink in. Thick golden brown cinnamon waffle topped with apple cinnamon, whipped cream and pecans, and then topped with caramel sauce. It’s basically everything that’s good in the world on a plate.
Windhill Pancake Parlor
3307 W. Elm St., McHenry | (815) 385-1172
An at home feeling restaurant with what some call the best breakfast in the county. Kids will love the fact that there’s a train counter where your meal is delivered via train.
90 N. Williams St., Crystal Lake | (815) 459-4100
A Classic American Diner that serves breakfast all day, freshly made to order. Owned and operated by a local family since 1998, it’s a neighborhood favorite.
Kim & Patty’s Cafe
731 Ridgeview Dr., McHenry | (815) 344-5262
Ticked away in the Inland Business Park, this cafe is worth finding for its homemade waffles and friendly diner atmosphere.
Around the Clock Restaurant
5011 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake | (815) 459-2100
Some have described Around the Clock as the only place in McHenry County to have breakfast, we believe in spreading the waffle love and letting you decide for yourself.
