SALLY'S WAFFLE SHOP, 4650 Sheridan Road
The best waffles in town. This shop has been here for many years, and people come from all over the city to this famed uptown eating establishment — especially for late supper or a snack in the wee small hours. Other dishes are exceptionally good here, too. Ashton Stevens drops into this place frequently during the spring months for the delightful asparagus tips served at the Sally board. The heroine of John Gunther's novel, "The Red Pavilion", ate her waffles and bacon at Sally's. In other words, everybody thinks of Sally's when they vision waffles. Located in the heart of the uptown district.
