This locally owned business was created by two Syracuse University students for students. Its collaboration of music and food brings about an alternative, welcoming environment for all ages. With a menu unlike any other, Funk n’ Waffles focuses mainly on assortments of different kinds of waffles. They range from your traditional buttermilk waffle with syrup to your not so traditional waffles with pulled pork on top. They also try and use as many local and organic products as possible. Funk n’ Waffles offers quality food for realistic prices, all in an atmosphere with an essence of its own. They have since branched out and have an additional restaurant in Syracuse's chic downtown area, Armory Square.
