Crispy, crunchy, fluffy, airy… these are some of the words that best described a waffle. Whether you like it plain or flavoured with buttermilk or dark chocolate, everyone has their own favourite waffle selection. A good waffle is tasty enough on its own with simple toppings like butter, honey or/and maple syrup. Or simply take your waffle to the next level by enjoying it with a single or double scoops of ice cream or gelato. Okay, enough said and here are the 8 Places To Get Your Waffle Fix in Singapore.
1) 5 The Moments Cafe
Originally a bridal photography shop before it was converted into a uniquely run-down-style cafe, 5 The Moments Cafe is well-known for its signature waffles.

Expect a crispy and fluffy waffle that complements well with the gelato that isn’t too sweet.
