C’s Waffles, a family restaurant, offers diners a delicious menu, quick service and homemade food at a low price. In the last five years, the restaurant has expanded to four locations in southeast Volusia. The most recent opening is C’s Waffles Edgewater, previously a Dunkin’ Donuts, located at 1816 S. Ridgewood Ave, Edgewater.
The location of each restaurant is important to the business’ success. As a startup, one of the most important decisions an owner will make is storefront. The city’s demographics – age, income, households, etc. – must be considered. C’s Waffles rises to many occasions within the coastal community, from first dates and pre- or post- beach days, much needed coffee breaks, to curing a rough morning. Each location is service-oriented and family friendly.
The menu prices are reasonable and not inflated based on location. C’s Waffles is a place where people can gather outside of work and home to form real, not virtual, communities. All guests are welcome to dine and are treated with dignity and respect. The only other establishments that reach a wider audience are fast food chains, not exactly known for their kindness to customers.
According to CsWaffles.com, Rick Cotelesse, owner, founded the eatery in 1992 with the original location in New Castle, PA. Cotelesse’s experience and values of hard work inspired him to open his own business. Since 1992, C’s Waffles has grown to six locations nationwide and plans on expanding in the future.
The dining room is simple with an open concept. The customer is usually seated immediately and can “sit where you like,” either at a counter or table. After frequent visits to a C’s location, like most local spots, familiarity sets in. The staff will at least know a face by the third visit.
Charge up your day with menu items like specialty waffles, pancakes, French toast and omelettes. Want something more? Order a combo like the “Southern Mess,” “The Chuckwagon” or “Hungry Jack Breakfast,” each offering unheard of portion sizes. Lunch items like burgers, sandwiches, soup and salads are also offered on the menu. Hours of operation at each location are from 6:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
