The Kennedy Waffle Shop is by far not the finest of restaurants you would want to visit... I came here because, according to my research online, this place is popular. I arrived and waited for thirty minutes to find a table which made me feel confident that this place must be good.


Facing the Hard Rock Cafe is Kennedy Waffle Shop. It's like an old American diner, packed with people, no music and a strong smell of oil frying. The restaurant welcomes a lot of tourists as well as locals. There are three bars and a dozen tables in a super tiny space. The floor is dirty. Not impressed.

On the menu: the breakfast specials served all day long include fries and waffles, eggs, steak and cheese, salads and sandwiches.


Let's start with the water - tap water served in a plastic cup. It looked and felt dirty. The water tasted like detergent. Inside the tight space are four fridges like a petrol station shop, 7up, Coke, Tropicana and even fresh juices.

"The food is disgusting", it is way below acceptable, the food is literally unacceptably bad...the food is inedible! And the service is a disgrace! 

The waffles were thin and crispy but tasted like toasted brioche. The pancakes were sticky and tasteless. I couldn't even tell there were blueberries as they provided no flavor.

The meat was stinky, rubbery and too spicy. The eggs were too oily... the food was very bad!

$28 for this crap and the cashier dared to ask for tips!

This place is a big no! For your own sake, please do not go anywhere near it.
