Wahfles, Desserts and Coffee Anyone?

Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce welcomes a new member

Chino Hills – On Aug. 16, Anthony, Lorraine and Jacob Abel took ownership of Wahfles Desserts & Coffee.  The restaurant has been open for two years located at 5751 Pine Ave. in Chino Hills.

Jacob Abel, son of Anthony and Lorraine has worked for the restaurant for almost two years before the previous owner sold it to his parents.  They decided to keep the name and the entire menu of specialty waffle and classic waffle desserts, sandwiches and a full espresso bar, shaken teas, special drinks, ice-blended drinks and affogatos.

So whether you are catching up with friends, grabbing a quick bite for lunch or taking the family  out for a Sunday morning breakfast, this place is a cozy family-friendly spot ready to serve up some savory goodness any time of day.  While you wait for your order, the family may play a game of cards or a board game, or if you simply want to read a book, they have a book shelf full of novels just for you.  Wahfles Desserts & Coffee is quite unique.  This is why Anthony and Lorraine jumped on the opportunity when the previous owner offered it to them.  Their one and only son Jacob, 18, put in his own life savings into the business making him a co-owner with his parents.  The Abel family is no stranger to Chino Valley area.  They have called Chino Hills their home for 18 years.  Lorraine teaches at the Alternative Education Center in the Chino Unified School District for independent study for high school students since 2011, and in the elementary division since 2003.  Anthony runs the restaurant full time alongside their son Jacob when he is not at school.  Jacob currently attends Cal State University majoring in Economics.  His ambition is to purchase many more businesses!

As a new Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce member, one of the things the Chamber does is hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate its grand opening and let the community know about your place of business. The mayor, city council or representatives from their office, and representatives from the district and assembly offices also come out to award the new business owner with certificates and welcome them to the community.

The ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening for Wahfles Desserts & Coffee was held on Oct. 7, 2015.  Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome Wahfles, Desserts, & Coffee to the Chino valley business community.
