A lengthy renovation project has begun on the exterior of the building that houses The Waffle -- a makeover that will give the Hollywood restaurant a brand new patio by fall of next year.
The roughly $7 million renovation project, spearheaded by building management, began late last week and is expected to last until September 2013, according to an assistant manager at the restaurant.
Excitement over the exterior makeover was noted on The Waffle's Facebook status last week: "You cannot BELIEVE the plans we have for the new & improved patio!"
While diners won't be able to use the patio during construction, the eatery will remain open for business as usual.
Other businesses located in the same building include Comerica Bank, CitiFinancial, and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
