Now that eateries and food places are opening back up after the pandemic has slowed, some food shops here in Stillwater are not reopening. Some of the Ma-Pa places that had closed down earlier and were somewhat good are still closed. However the dozens and dozens of fast food franchises are all still open. Saved, I guess, by their drive-thru. But being a college town, what could you expect.
The city people should levy a tax on the franchises and share it with the shut down Ma-Pa places that are now closed. But anyway, the bad news is those little diners will not come back. I still haven’t figured out what the good news is. But there is one exception and it’s a well run local owned breakfast and lunch place. It’s called Just Waffling. Belgium waffles fixed any way you wish. Just a hot crispy waffle alone with maple syrup and real butter or stacked with berries and mounds of whip cream. Plus eggs, sausage, bacon, pan grilled potatoes, biscuits, and more. They even have a waffle taco breakfast. Can’t wait to go back. However, their coffee is like a bowl of dog water. Very very weak. The weak coffee seems to be a trend with eateries here in Stillwater.
