One of the newer additions to the alcohol scene in Alameda, Wine & Waffles serves exactly what you would expect and more. There are 200 different variations of fine wine that are mainly from California, South America and even Europe. But don’t fret because the non-wine lovers out there can expect locally brewed beer as an option, which make wonderful accompaniments to their many snacks ranging from Baja fish tacos to their chicken waffle sliders. Decorated for a more relaxed ambiance, Wine & Waffles proves that there is no need to drive to Napa for some wine.
