The down-to-earth Waffle House has gotten some trendy folks appearing in its booths lately. From Beyonce to the Kardashians, the 24-hour restaurant chain has become the celebrity hangout for late-night gatherings.

My favorite Waffle House moment was the morning after my wedding. My new husband and I decided to sneak out of the house filled with sleeping wedding guests and get a private newlywed breakfast of our own at the nearby Waffle House in Roanoke. We dished about our Wedding Day and happily started our first day of wedded bliss.

If you have fond memories of Waffle House, you can continue the nostalgia by making a road trip to the newly opened Waffle House Museum.

The museum is located at the site of the first Waffle House restaurant, which opened in 1955, in Decatur, Georgia. The original restaurant has been restored to get back that 1950s vibe and includes Waffle House memorabilia from the past 60 years.

Museum tours are available between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Call 770-326-7086 at least a week in advance to make an appointment.
