Is there anything not to love about waffles? A well-made waffle is a glorious thing. Its pockets hold a mix of ice-cream and maple sauce that fills your mouth at every bite. It also sits well on both ends of the spectrum –Sweet and Savory. So very scrumptious!
I’ve rounded up some favourite renditions across Singapore. Here are 20 waffles you should know:
People walk by this store without giving it much thought but they try it eventually because a friend recommended or because it has been going around social media looking sexy, photogenic and most importantly- tasty. Definitely one of the best waffles in Singapore which all our writers agree on.

Rogue Fromage Waffle ($13.80)
At Whisk & Paddle, you could have your waffles sweet or savoury by Punggol waterway. There’s nothing like waffles with a view. For sweet waffles, go for the Rogue Fromage Waffle, especially if you’re a fan of cheesecake.
The waffles are fluffy and light so even with the cheesecake, it isn’t overburdening on the stomach. The fruits could have been sweeter but the Mövenpick ice cream made up for the sourness of the strawberries.
Smoked Salmon Benedict (served on waffles) ($13.00)
As for something more savoury, go for the Smoked Salmon Benedict. Served on waffles, this is a good breakfast option to have.
If you’re still stuck. Whisk & Paddle also has a really good selection of parfaits.
Cha Yen Krup ($9.80)
Everything, including the macaron, are made from scratch. I would imagine this would go really well with a plain waffle.

Chapter 55 has 2 waffle options on their menu and the Salted Caramel Gelato Waffle ($14/$18.50) is one of them. The waffle here is delightfully crispy on the outside and light in the inside. The good folks here will set you up with a large scoop of gelato that is outmatched by the even more oversized fluffy waffle.
Waffle is topped with a flurry of icing sugar and a good amount of salted caramel sauce. Gelato lovers will appreciate the array of gelato options, such as lychee martini, black forest and their signature Mao Shan Wang gelato made from the king of fruit itself, no less.

Hoopla Coffee and Kitchen offers its customers accompaniments to their new and improvised Classic Waffle + Single scoop of ice-cream ($7.50) : Salted caramel sauce, Maple sauce and Banana gula melaka sauce.
Not just any ice cream though, the earl grey ice cream recommended was the smoothest and yummiest ever and has a very distinct flavour. The chopped nuts adds a delightful tasty note.

One of the most honest and simple cafes popped up in the heart of Toa Payoh last year. Les Patisseries serves waffles that are incredibly good value for money. The Horffles ($9.90), is served with 2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream, horlick powder, horlick sauce, toasted almonds and fresh berries.
The exterior of the waffle is crispy and the inside gives a nice chewy bite. Horlick itself is not overly sweet and complements the vanilla ice-cream and original base waffle very well. You might also want to try their Waffle Isphan – A rose based waffle served with sorbet (yes,sorbet!) that is lighter and more refreshing.

The recommended Chicken and Waffle ($16) is of a tasty doughy crispiness, covered by a perfectly fried chicken. This is accompanied by a shot of maple syrup to drizzle over the whole creation. Slice the waffle into half and you will find almond nuts for the added texture.
This is a waffle I will travel for miles (From East to West) to try. Chicken waffle mission is a real thing and Revelry Cafe is definitely something to experience. On the sweet side, try On Cloud Nine. Hint: Cotton candy. Fluffy cotton candy.

The Salted Caramel Waffle ($12) here is crisp enough to withstand the overzealous salted caramel sauce and is my favourite amongst their 7 sweet and savory options. If you’d fancy a waffle for dinner, order the Truffle Scrambled Egg Waffles ($16) that is overpowered, in a good sense, with the earthy truffle fragrance. It smells good and tastes absolutely great.

Best of all, they have a wide range of ice-cream flavours and some have an interesting narrative behind them. Ask the wait staffs behind the counter for the story!

The sauce was a perfected ratio of chocolate and maple syrup and goes delightfully well with the froyo and waffle. It thickened nicely on the plate and I wiped it clean with the waffle.

I’m glad that Hatter Street is lavishing just as much attention on their waffles now seeing that it is so highly raved by many. The Pandan Ice Cream Waffles with Gula Melaka ($8.90) is a hot favourite!

Rabbit Owl Depot’s Snowflake Waffle ($6.50 onwards) is comparatively smaller to the usual round ones, served in most cafes. However, it makes for a perfect dessert treat rightfully so because of its size. If you fancy Thai Coconut Ice Cream, you can get your fix here with waffles.

Many agree that the waffle here rank high on the waffle billboard. Crisp and golden on the outside, warm and soft within. Prices here are from $6.00 onwards.

Stranger’s Reunion keeps their toppings simple-sliced fresh fruits and a scoop of ice-cream served alongside a browned and buoyant buttermilk waffle ($8.50). You may also choose to have it with greek yogurt.

Wimbly Lu prides themselves the purveyors of desserts and their waffles are no exception. On their menu you’ll find no-frill Waffles with Maple syrup and Butter ($6). Nothing fancy. With 1 scoop of ice cream will set you back $8.50.
Don’t be disappointed with the lackluster-looking waffle because the waffle itself tastes really good. Plus, you will probably order something else from their extensive dessert options before heading home. That full-on sugar high can’t be avoided after all.

This cafe (or Ice Cream Bar as they have named themselves) may have made it onto the must visit list with their artisan plated desserts but it’s their Charcoal Waffles with Salted Egg Sauce ($6 without Ice Cream) that is undoubtedly keeping them there. We just love salted-egg anything, don’t we?
The salty-sweetness of Fatcat’s salted egg sauce and ice-cream meet their match with a soft and fluffy waffle. But, it’s the unique ice-cream flavours (read: Beer Butter and Honey Hay) that make their waffle unforgettable.

However, any additional minute on the waffle iron and it will tip over to being burnt. If consistency is maintained, the waffle here is definitely worth a try.

This one will sit well with the more health conscious souls. Waffle here is towards the soft, chewy and moist kind. If you like crispy waffles, this is not for you.
