DELICIOUS! Food came out fast and tasted perfect. There are so many options from sweet, creative waffles to healthy salads and smoothies. My boyfriend had the cinnamon bun coffee and it tasted exactly like a cinnamon bun. Definitely try it if you have the chance....The restaurant itself is super cute and peaceful.More

I will never look at a waffle the same way again. Fabulous creative restaurant on a main street in smalltown America. Excellant food, fabulous service and the friendliest people. Do say hello to Lanaya , you will make her day!

I reviewed my last visit in 2018 and have decided to upgrade from 4 stars to 5. I think last time i thought it was pricey, and this time I felt the prices were very reasonable, Our group of four all enjoyed our meals and...again, I was pleased by so many vegetarian offerings. The COVID protocols in place at the time were very reasonable.More

Iron Roost is a cozy, warm, inviting restaurant with the most marvelous food and excellent service. I’m vegan, and I had an array of dishes to choose from. I chose the Grilled Waffle with Cashew Cheese. OMG! It was amazing. My companion ordered the Buddha...Bowl. Huge, lovely, diverse range of veggies, with quinoa and tahini dressing. The prices are very reasonable. Definitely going back again and again.More

The food is so good. Homemade. You can tell it is high quality and they have farm to table ingredients. The wait is a bit long at times but use the app to get in line.

Went with a friend to breakfast. Ordered and sat down to wait. They bring it to you. Chai tea was good. The apple waffle was delicious! Also had potatoes and fruit sides. Would recommend.

Visited on Valentine's Day at around 11am and had a slight wait. They take your name and phone number and thru the Yelp app, you're able to see your wait time while looking over a menu. Just before your table is ready they have you...go up to the counter to order your food. The process is efficient and the wait not long at all. This is new since my last visit and it was a very nice addition to the experience. As always, the waffles were excellent and the coffee delicious!!More

Sweet or savory you can't go wrong! Everything that comes out of the kitchen is picture perfect and delicious. And the homefries! Just wish we could spend more time there!
