'The Waffle Shop' capitalizes on the fact that food brings people together. Opened by Jon Rubin, this 1970s-style talk show serves up a flavorful community experience from inside a small Pittsburgh store.

Ultimately, 'The Waffle Shop' creates a unique environment for diverse social interaction not unlike Kramer's 'Merv Griffin Show' on Seinfeld. 'The Waffle Shop' entices the public with a setting for the unreserved exchange of opinions, ideas and dance moves, turing a breakfast bar into a public pow-wow.
