Bradenton waffle lovers and late-night dining fans, you’re in luck. Waffle House has officially arrived.
The all-day breakfast restaurant chain, which boasts Waffle Houses have served more than 2.5 billion eggs, 1.7 billion strips of bacon and 877 million waffles since 1955, opened a new location this week on Cortez Road.
At 2400 Cortez Road W., Bradenton residents can get their waffle fix any time of day, any day of the year. Waffle House is open 24 hours, all seven days, even on holidays. The late-night hours are welcomed by many, myself included, because there aren’t too many midnight snack options on that side of town. Or anywhere in Bradenton, really.
The restaurant is still hiring for all shifts. There was a wait for a table Wednesday morning, so be ready to strike up a conversation with a fellow breakfast-food lover when you arrive.
Waffle House offers a variety of omelets, classic breakfast plates and, of course, waffles, as well as several types of sandwiches for lunch. But as Nick Offerman’s character Ron Swanson said in a season 7 episode of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”:
“Why does anybody in the world ever eat anything but breakfast food?”
