Wafels & Dinges Now Delivers via Seamless

Wafels & Dinges has started to offer delivery through Seamless. The waffles will be coming from either their Bryant Park or Herald Sqaure kiosks, so it shouldn’t take too long to get some warm waffles on your desk if you work on the west side. Check Seamless for their menu and delivery range. Has anybody tried the delivery yet? Are the waffles as good as at the actual locations?
