There are two kinds of people in this world – pancake people and waffle people. We aren’t necessarily declaring which is superior, but the complexity of the waffle, with its crispy edges, soft interior, and perfect little square compartments for butter to melt into … is hard to beat. Here are six different waffles in Corpus Christi to try–even for the pancake people. 

Chicken and Waffle from PKK Southern Cuisine   

Come for the Georgia Peach Chicken and Waffles and stay for the smooth Jazz music and southern hospitality at PKK Southern Cuisine. This chicken and waffle dish is a must-order in a spread of comfort food like turkey and dressing, fried chicken and collard greens. The standard dish is taken up a notch with the addition of peach-infused maple syrup. 

Order with: Mimosas at brunch

Located at  213 South Chaparral St.

Red Velvet Waffle from Chops & Eggs 

The next time you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth at brunch, check out the red velvet waffle from Chops & Eggs. This modern American eatery uses farm-fresh ingredients for its country-inspired, breakfast-all-day menu. With a tagline like “hand-battered. handmade. hammered daily,” you know it’s good. 

Order with: Nutella-stuffed strawberry banana waffle to share with the table 

Find them at 5802 Yorktown Blvd B107 

Buckwheat Waffles from Lucy’s Snackbar 

Not your typical waffle, the buckwheat and protein waffle from Lucy’s Snackbar provides a nutrient-packed breakfast in a treat package. This might be the most well-rounded waffle in town topped with yogurt, berries, citrus, a sprinkle of seeds and nut butter. 

Order with: A matcha latte or cappuccino

Find them at 312 N Chaparral

Ella Fitzgerald from Hester’s Cafe 

The Ella Fitzgerald from Hester’s Cafe is a whole breakfast situation. The fluffy Belgian waffle is topped with scrambled eggs, slices of bacon and a scoop of crispy breakfast potatoes served with maple syrup on the side. If you want to skip the fixings, order a waffle on the side of any entree to take it up a notch. 

Order with: The Hester’s latte 

Located at 1714 S. Alameda and 3812 S Alameda

Funnel Cake Waffle from Sandi’s Diner

The line between breakfast and dessert is blurry with this one, but for the first meal of the day on a Saturday, we welcome it. The funnel cake waffle from Sandi’s Diner tastes surprisingly similar to the quintessential fair food, sans the deep fryer. It’s impossibly soft, sweet and practically melts in your mouth. 

Order with: The create-your-own omelet option 

Located at 3801 S Staples

Texas Waffle from Price’s Chef  

Price’s Chef is a local mainstay and has been open at its six points location for 84 years. The restaurant has been dishing out breakfasts and lunches with Texas-shaped waffles as the main attraction ever since. Strawberries and pecans make a nice finishing touch. 

Order with: Get the waffle as a combo with one egg and a choice of bacon, ham or sausage for $7.95.

Located at 1800 S Alameda St.
