I found out about this place via INTERNET and thought I love waffles and there was a wide range to choose from.
I also love ice cream and since they offer it together a perfect place to me.
They have quite a variaty of different food to add to the waffles.
If you have a sweet tooth you'd find your satisfaction at the menu to choose from. If you'd prefer the savory taste you'll find definitely something to enjoy.
You also can choose hot and cold beverages...
I also liked the toilet facility - it made a clean impression and it has a good decoration.
I have to note there are mixed genders toilets - one room with 3 seperate toilets.
The whole building is very charming but very simple - it's quite flat and is situated a little outside after you take a walk from the park...
Favorite Dish: I especially loved the waffle with vanilla ice cream, banana slices, whipped cream and butterscotch.
Since I really DO love all the ingredients I have to admit I really enjoyed it - it was perfect and the portion was quite big - you probably want to skip dinner that day... :D
I also had a cup of cappuccino and a coke...

We popped into the delightful spot on a cold, blustery, rainy Saturday afternoon after it had been recommended to us by friends.
The simple decor and the large tables and benches give the place a homely feel. The polite service crew are mostly made up of local youngsters but don't let this put you off.
The place is relaxed and there is no need to rush around. We were in no hurry to leave, as it was hailing outside.
Favorite Dish: I went for the bakewell tart with ice cream and the Mrs had the delightful sticky toffee pudding with banana ice cream.

This is one our our favourite restaurants in St Albans and is ideal for a spot of lunch or an early dinner.
The Waffle House serves up waffles with everything. You can have waffles for starter, main course and the dessert.
The restaurant is at the just outside of the bottom of the Verulamium Park and has many outside tables. You may have to queue for a table, but this normally it doesn't take too long to get a table.
Favorite Dish: One of my favourites is the Chilli Con Carne - Organic minced beef cooked with peppers and kidney beans in a spicy tomato sauce. Served with sour cream, grated cheddar & tortillas
Although at my last visit I went for the Hummus & Avocado - Fresh hummus made with organic chickpeas, tahini and olive oil, layered with wild rocket, sun-dried tomatoes and organic olives, drizzled with a sweet chilli and balsamic dressing and topped with an avocado fan

After a hour or so running around the kids playground, this is an oasis for parents. It set in the middle of the historic Verulamium Park. It's open for breakfast and lunch and also does a high tea.
The food here is always fresh and the service is very friendly. There is a good size room for a small family function and whilst we were last here there was a birthday party going on.
Favorite Dish: It serves a warming cup of tea and coffee, and on my last visit I went for the rather tasty and huge ploughmans sandwich.

This restaurant in St Albans serves up Bangladeshi and Indian food. We went on a busy Saturday night with a few friends. it's not a huge place and so the tables can get a bit crowded.
There was a lot of the usual rushing about by the owner and the waiters. The food didn't take too long to arrive, given that there were nine of us, and the prices were reasonable.
Only bottled lagers available, no draught. I went for the Tiger beer.
I'd certainly visit this spot again and try out some of the other dishes.
Favorite Dish: It's got some really interesting and different dishes on the menu, with a lot of items that you don't usually see in your standard UK curry house.
I went for the fish curry; Bangla Fish Amrit - Freshwater Tiger Fish from Bangladesh, cooked in medium hot sauce with fresh herbs and spices ... and the Mrs went for the vegetarian; Chana Aloo Chat - Maharastranian roadside fare. Sliced new potatoes and chickpeas mixed together with light aromatic spices in a chat mosalla sauce, all garnished with carrots, cucumber, tomatoes and fresh coriander.

This was a work dinner; and three colleagues from the USA and I made a visit to Darcys Restaurant. It was an interesting place spread over two floors.
The service was good, however when we were there it appeared that the did not have so many customers (our four and a couple). It was 18.30 and a Wednesday after all - oh and it was a very sunny and warm evening.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed a fillet steak, and fries - I opted for the special dessert (white chocolate mousse and balsamic strawberries).

A Wetherspoon pub, so the food is formula, basic, standard. Gammon & chips, chicken tikka marsala, burgers, fish & chips.

It's in a big old converted barn conveniently located in St Peter's Street, the town's main street.

I've been a regular at Lussmanns ever since I moved to St Albans six years ago. It's on Waxhouse Gate, right next to the Abbey, and spread out over three floors. The setting is really lovely - lots of light coming in through the glass roof and a mix of leather, wood and comfy cushions inside. It's the sort of place that works for any occasion; whether it's a quick lunch, a family meal or a special celebration. The menu tells you exactly where the food is sourced from, which is unusual, and there's plenty of choice with a la carte, set and specials menus - which makes ordering difficult! It's a brasserie style selection of salads, pasta and grills with tempting 'comfort food' desserts. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and it's great value. Strangely, considering its central location, it's a bit of a hidden gem but The Good Food Guide found it and I'd encourage anyone to do the same!
Favorite Dish: It's difficult to pick one dish but I'm a fan of the free-range marinated chicken salad which has lots of garlic, lemon juice, mixed leaves, soft goats cheese & roasted peppers. Delicious!
Address: Waxhouse Gate, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL3 4EW
Directions: One entrance is opposite the North West corner of St Albans Abbey, the other is in Heritage Close, just off the main High Street near the Clocktower

The restaurant is lovely on both the ground and first floors and there is an outside bit for the summer or for smokers.
The food is clever without being too fancy.
We had raspberry bellinis in the bar first!

The sweet crumbly biscuit, the sour soft rhubarb and a scoop of smooth subtle cheesey cream in three separate parts - sublime!

A visit to "Ye Olde Fighting Cocks" makes for an appropriate bookend for a St. Albans Abbey/Cathedral pilgrimage. This riverside pub is regularly cited as one of the oldest and longest-continuously serving pubs in all England. Certainly they have been pouring beer and serving grilled food at this location since the 1400s! If you like historic atmosphere with your "real ale" and pub grub, you won't be disappointed here.
There is a nice outdoor patio, but it was drizzly when I was here, so I ate indoors. There are several well-appointed and low-ceilinged rooms to choose from, and snuggeries that are truly snug.
One interesting feature of the pub is a stuffed cock - one of the last great champions of the sport from the early 19th century. Cock-fighting was (finally) outlawed in the 1830s, and it is clear that this was an extremely popular gathering place for the fans of this cruel blood sport. (Thank goodness now we have hockey!)
