You’ll recognize Bru’s Wiffle by the line down the block. This breakfast-only fried chicken and waffles joint lives up to the hype - the fried chicken is always perfectly juicy, the waffles are fluffy, and you can easily stretch the giant serving into two meals. There are other options on the menu, but we can’t comment on them, because there is no point in ordering anything but the waffles. Bru’s is tiny, which accounts for the constant wait, so you might want to consider getting take-out (or delivery, if you can find it on one of the apps). A to-go order will also provide you with a picnic you can take to the park across the street.
