Waffle House Museum open to public once a month

This weekend, I visited The Waffle House Museum, located at 2719 East College Avenue in Decatur, which is located at the site of the first-ever Waffle House restaurant, opened in 1955 by two Decatur neighbors. The chain has grown to have 1600 restaurants in 25 states, and the Atlanta area has about 200 restaurant locations. The museum is in two parts: one houses Waffle House memorabilia from its 54-year history and the other part is the 1955 restaurant's dining room and kitchen. The museum is a lot of fun to visit, and I highly recommend it.

The Waffle House Museum is typically only open to the public by appointment. Recently, however, museum staff decided to open to the public with admission is free on one Saturday per month from noon to 3 pm. Saturday, August 7 is the next open date. If you’re interested in visiting the Waffle House Museum at another day and time, call 770-326-7086 to schedule an appointment.
