You know what’s great to have any time of the day, whether it’s for breakfast with the girls, tea with the boo or even a sneaky post-dinner dessert? Waffles! These fluffy treats have become versatile by adding glazes, syrups, fruits and even ice cream. Glitz hears your tummy rumbling- here are the best waffle shops in Singapore for when you’re feeling waffle-y hungry.
1. Hyde & Co
|Address||785 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198753|
|Contact||+65 6635 5785|
785 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198753 is a fantastic location to go if you’re searching for an English breakfast. It’s known for its large assortment of tea. Although the waffle itself isn’t the crispiest or lightest, Hyde & Co deserves credit for their inventive waffles. Waffles with toasted marshmallows sprinkled in affogato sauce or their unique popcorn waffles are available. The person who came up with the idea of turning affogato into a waffle sauce deserves praise.

Gelatolabo is known for its rotating flavours of Japanese-inspired ice cream, but the Tokyo Mochi Waffles are a must-try for those who prefer their scoops on a fresh warm bed of waffles. The waffles here are delightfully crisp on the exterior and sticky-soft on the inside, making it one of the greatest variations available today, made with Nippon flour and mochi. For a delicious mid-day snack, we recommend the Kyoto Shiso & Yuzu Jelly and the Watermelon, Mint & Chia Seeds.
3. Twenty Grammes Café
|Address||753 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198721|
|Operating hours||Every day (12pm – 10pm)|
|Contact||+65 9447 2020|
Twenty Grammes joins the charcoal waffle craze by serving theirs with a rich salted egg sauce. Unlike the typical runny salted egg sauce, Twenty Grammes’ version is thick and rich, giving the sweet ice cream a powerful taste. There are several ice cream flavours to pick from, but Thai milk tea, sea salt caramel, and Earl Grey are the most popular. If you’re not feeling experimental, go with the simple buttermilk waffle, which is just as tasty.
4. Atlas Coffeehouse
|Address||6 Duke’s Rd, Singapore 268886|
|Operating hours||Every day (8am – 7pm)|
|Contact||+65 6314 2674|
Waffles have become commonplace on the menus of cafés that specialise in brunch fare, and Atlas Coffeehouse is no exception. Each dish costs $12.50 and includes vanilla ice cream, so the only decision you’ll have to make is whether to add toppings like salted caramel sauce, Earl Grey caramel sauce, mixed berry compote, or candied bacon. Green tea lovers will enjoy the matcha waffles, which are topped with matcha ice cream and caramel sauce.
5. Sunday Folks

Sunday Folks is the place to go if you’re looking for luscious dessert waffles. Crispy, golden waffles are served beside towering heaps of soft serve. Sea salt gula Melaka, roasted pistachio, and earl grey lavender are just a few of the many flavours available. Alternatively, add house-made toppings like torched espresso marshmallows and handcrafted Japanese Kinako (roasted soybean flour) if that isn’t enough.

Chef de cuisine Paul Albert created the 100% sourdough waffle at Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner. While working at The Slow Bakery in Rio de Janeiro, he discovered the potential of fermentation. The waffle is produced in the typical Liege style with a thick batter and pearl sugar, and the addition of sourdough gives it an irresistible tanginess and satisfying chewiness. Choose the savoury version ($23) for the ultimate breakfast, which includes a fried egg, ricotta cheese, crispy grilled bacon, and maple syrup smoked with paprika.
8. Hatter Street Bakehouse & Café
|Address||212 Hougang Street 21, #01-333, Singapore 530212|
|Contact||+65 8614 3331|
Live your childhood dreams and join Mad Hatter’s tea party as Alice! When I first walked into Hatter Street Bakehouse & Café, we were caught aback by the unique design and the aroma of freshly baked goods. They also provide ice cream in a range of flavours, including White Chocolate and Pandan.
Their famed waffles have a crunchy outside and a soft inside. The sauce is always poured over as if it were a masterpiece, resulting in the ideal Instagram photo. Look out for their $8.50 ice cream waffle combos. For thick creamy richness, this is a terrific bargain.
