Vegan options are pretty dry

There isn’t an outright vegan waffle, it’s build it yourself. So the options to build it are the typical dry mouth type of thing. Really didn’t like the drip coffee either but I’m picky about that.

Cons: Expensive

Pricey, service wasn’t great

Yay for a place that offers vegan waffle options! Too bad the prices are pretty steep. A base waffle was $7, plus $2 to be made vegan, plus $2 extra PER topping (on average). It’s $2 extra for actual maple syrup...

I ordered takeout and the process was very confusing. I got email confirmation that the order was ready, so I came in. Despite multiple workers behind the counter, there was no spot for pickups and you have to wait in line.

I asked for my order and they couldn’t confirm that it was mine. No name, no receipt, no note. Nothing. The young lady opens the container and we assume it’s mine. Thankfully it was. When I asked about syrup, I was given a little cup of what was clearly cheap, imitation syrup. No way of confirming if it was actually vegan either.

Waffle of choice was the Naughty Waffle, (minus whipped cream to be vegan) since it was a better value than building your own. The waffle was decent enough, until I found a hair stuck to one of the blueberries.

I like what they tried here, but it seems to be a hipster, overpriced waffle place with poorly trained staff. Unfortunately, I probably won’t come back. It was $15 for a mediocre waffle with a hair in it.

Pros: vegan waffle option, fresh toppings

Cons: pricey, service was subpar, found hair in food

Fantastic Waffles

Worth going into downtown even if you’re just passing through Fargo. Great atmosphere. Safe space (Pride flag prominently displayed). Featured local art on the walls for sale. Great music loud enough to enjoy, low enough to carry on a conversation with those at your table. Games if you want to hang out a while. Spacious with natural light and plenty of seating. Free wifi. Clean washrooms.

Come here!

Pros: Vegan batter for all waffles on menu, Build your own with lots of options, Oat, soy, and almond milk options

Cons: No vegan whipped cream if that’s essential to you

Waffles+coffee (+ booze + fun)

Fun place straight outta MSP here in FAR. Vegan options. (4-star in protest, again, I’d go 5. I wish we weren’t such purists here on the Cow; let’s not have the perfect be the enemy of the good.)
Great space. Kind and attentive staff. Super food and drink. Fun vibes.
Note: they don’t call the food vegan or gluten free because it shares prep and cooking surfaces.

Note: Name is actually “Black Coffee and Waffles.”
