5 Best Places For Waffles In Singapore

Revised on 22 January 2014

Every ice-cream/breakfast place sells Belgium waffles but not many can do a good tribute to this characteristically deep grid patterned dough-based cake. I personally enjoy my waffles served warm, crisp on the outside but light and fluffy on the inside, with those square imprinted pockets that soak up the heavenly combination of ice-cream, chocolate sauce or maple syrup and even cream. A good Belgium waffle in my opinion has to be a bit doughy, chewy, good to eat on its own but even better with toppings.

So here are my top 5 waffles places in Singapore in no particular order.
Read on to find out if your favorite made the cut!

Creamier

128 Toa Payoh Lorong 1 #01-835 Tel: 62501476
Opening hrs: Tue – Thu: 12:00 – 22:00, Fri – Sat: 12:00 – 23:00, Sun: 10:00 – 22:00

Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee is Toa Payoh’s funky addition to this otherwise old-school estate. Making all their ice-creams and sorbets with their own recipes, this Singapore-born ice-cream parlor opened by a couple has been nothing short of a success story. Their waffles come in pairs so stacking adds onto the satisfaction factor but while they were crisp and complimented the creamy ice-creams perfectly, they were a little bland to eat on its own. But I did appreciate the generous border of maple syrup and chocolate that made finishing the last part of the waffles a breeze.

Recommended for: Those who love their waffles extremely sweet and sticky
Cost: Waffle + ice-cream $8.30 (additional scoop $2.50)
My pick of ice-cream: Earl Grey Lavender, Sea Salt Gula Melaka

Wimbly Lu Chocolate Cafe

15-2 Jalan Riang Tel: +65 6289 1489
Opening hrs: Tue to Fri: 12pm – 10.30pm, Sat & Sun: 9am – 11pm

The waffles at Wimbly Lu Chocolate Cafe was my main motivating factor behind searching for the best waffles in Singapore. To be honest, I never thought that waffles could be actually taste this good until I tried the ones here. My only complaint was the petite size of the ice-cream scoop which is definitely not enough in ratio to that waffle size. MUST order double scoops here.

Assembly Coffee

26 Evans Lodge Tel: 6735 5647
Opening hrs: 10am to 9pm (Tue-Sun), Closed on Mon

This self-proclaimed ‘third wave coffee movement’ cafe has been making waves on Instagram since their opening in November last year for their Salted Caramel Waffles. When we made a trip down to see what the hype was all about, these highly raved Waffles met all expectations- beautifully fluffy and crisp on the outside with a subtle hint of orange zest yet not cloyingly sweet. We could not get enough of the accompanying scoop ice-cream that had flecks of real vanilla beans and ordered an additional one. But if Salted Caramel is not your thing, the cafe also serves a Chocolate Mint version.

My pick: Salted Caramel Waffles

Department of Caffeine

15 Duxton Road Tel: 6223 3426
Opening hrs: 10.30am to 7.30pm (weekdays), 9.30am to 7.30pm (weekends)

Department of Caffeine, the newest addition to Duxton offers Buttermilk Waffles done two ways- with Butter Rum Bananas or Blueberry Compote and a choice of Vanilla or Chocolate ice-cream. But fancy aside, these waffles themselves were the true stars with its rich buttery flavor, light texture and oh so irresistible smell that greets you even before the waffles reach your table. Yes you literally ‘Wake up and smell the coffee waffles’ here.

Strangers’ Reunion

37 Kampong Bahru Tel: 6222 4869
Opening hrs: Mon: 09:00 – 22:00, Wed – Sun: 09:00 – 22:00

The best waffles in Singapore in my humble opinion and the opinions of my waffle buddies who went through the entire waffle experience with me. These Buttermilk Waffles are served with fresh fruits and come with a choice of either ice-cream or greek yoghurt. But from what I hear, these 2 options are equally popular (so choose the latter for a healthier option). I thought that these waffles were the best as they had an extra-light texture, super fluffy and the perfect buttermilk taste. And I loved how everyone paused for a moment when they all took a bite of this waffle and said ‘wow’ at the same time after finishing it.

My pick: Vanilla Ice-Cream and Fresh Fruits

    I am deeply, inexplicably and irreconcilably saddened that Pandan Waffles are not in the list or even mentioned.

    Being a waffle addict, I travelled all around the world, including Brussels, and found that at every waffle stop, the buttery smell of Belgian Waffles cannot compete with the wafts of pandan goodness from a local store that does it right here, granted it is rare, but they exist, in the East.
