Shaky Alibi, West Hollywood

It’s a gourmet Waffle House/Café. Duh, Winning.

R.J. Milano is a local business owner who definately takes pride in his work. He’s the kind of owner who is involved in all aspects of his establishment, from the careful choosing of local artists to display on the shop’s walls, to making sure that customers are always the first priority. He told me that some visitors have driven hours to check out his 9-month old, West Hollywood Waffle House-Café.

I’m a bit spoiled being that Shaky Alibi is within walking distance to my house. I like to think of this place as my Cheers. Well, if Cheers served coffee and Kirstie Alley brought me delicious waffles everyday.

You don’t like waffles you say? Then, you’ve never had them here. Along with their awesome decor and hip local art that changes regularly, the made-to-order sweet or savory waffles are perfect for a relaxing morning or an after dinner spot when you just want to kick back and talk or sip some tea and maybe play ping pong.  Yes! They have a ping pong table that they bring out on Friday and Saturday nights. That pretty much sealed the deal for me about this place.

I love sitting at the bar and chatting it up with the friendly waffle-tenders. Plus, they have free wifi and are open late. Double score.

Bring the lady friend… she’ll think you are so hip. This spot is a must try when you’re looking for someplace chill and Goooood.

Stand out items: Specaloos Spread (get it crunchy), the Monte Cristo Waffle or the Drinking Chocolate.
