Take a drive through just about any region of the United States, choose an exit off the highway and you’re certain to see at least one or two diners catering to both locals and travellers stopping off to refuel after a long drive. Serving everything from breakfast all day, plus milkshakes, burgers and fries, these small restaurants are a favourite destination for many an American. Bringing you the same nostalgia and incredible cuisine is Waffle Jack’s, a diner offering amazing American food to the hungry folks of London. You’ll find it on Wimbledon’s Merton Park Parade, just steps from Wimbledon Chase overground station.
Longing for the type of comfort-food cuisine that only an American diner can offer, Jack, founder of the aptly named Waffle Jack’s, opened up shop in London’s Wimbledon to bring locals burgers, breakfasts, bagels and shakes, just like back in his native USA. Americana plays a big role in the decoration here, as shown by the old vinyl records lining the walls, the big portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, and the bowling balls and pins standing throughout. Known for their friendly service and even featuring a great kids’ menu, the restaurant provides an all-around fantastic experience for the entire family.
The food at London’s Waffle Jack’s is typical American diner fare, and for those unfamiliar, it entails amazing breakfasts, delicious milkshakes, hearty burgers, tasty hot dogs and of course, waffles. Just like in any good American diner, Waffle Jack’s offers up affordable combo deals that include the best of what’s on the menu. We recommend one of the restaurant’s hot dogs like the beef chilli hot dog or the bacon and cheese version – there’s even a fully vegetarian hot dog for diners who like their meal meat-free. The milkshakes at Waffle Jack’s come in several flavours from bubblegum to peanut butter and everything in between. Why not give in to your cravings – book ahead to avoid queuing at this American hotspot on Merton Hall Road in Wimbledon.
