The whimsical minds behind Sogurt have succeeded at delivering a multi-sensory dessert made from folding mochi into the waffle batter, resulting in a treat that assaults you with its myriad of textures and dazzling presentation.

Located just a quick five-minute walk away, this quaint cafe turns out bite-sized mini waffles made from a doughnut batter. From Berry Malt to Mango Cheese, the doughnut waffles will win you over with their adorable appearance and colourful selection.

Must try: Okonomiyaki Wazza ($12)
To differentiate themselves in a foodscape already saturated with some of the best waffles in Singapore, cafes are taking more risks with fusion food experimentation! That said, Common Chefs’ Wazza definitely turns a few heads by revealing their unexpected meshing of pizzas and waffles. Tasting exactly like a savoury Japanese pancake, the Okonomiyaki Wazza tastes exactly like, well, an okonomiyaki. From the bonito flake garnishing to the generous servings of Japanese mayonnaise and tonkatsu sauce, you’ll be blown away by the attention to detail here. With a soft buttermilk waffle as its base, Common Chefs have outdone themselves by taking an existing dish and elevating its flavour with a unique addition!

Must try: Belgium charcoal waffle with single scoop 13.9
Can’t get enough of Instagram-worthy waffles with ice cream in Singapore? Helmed by chef Barry Lok, a veteran who honed his skills in the kitchens of multiple hotels, this homely cafe near Mountbatten has made its rounds on social media for its Belgium Charcoal Waffles. Fun fact: did you know adding a pinch of activated charcoal powder into the batter turns out extra crispy waffles – besides giving it that dark edge? If you’re spoilt for gelato flavours, we’d also recommend pairing the waffles with raspberry sorbet so you get maximum contrast when adding this dessert shot to your Instagram feed.

Must try: Chicken & Waffles ($19)
Revelry is our secret find tucked away in the quiet Lorong Kilat neighbourhood. A plain waffle here goes for a pocket-friendly $6.50, complete with generous lashings of butter and maple syrup! Instead of the usual dense and filling buttermilk waffles, Revelry has engineered a Belgian waffle base that is crispy and light, with enough grid pockets to accommodate their huge portions while holding tonnes of maple syrup. So good is their house-made waffle that we’re willing to ditch our under-$15 rule and splurge on their signature Chicken & Waffles — featuring a succulent deep-fried chicken thigh for a splendid yin-and-yang combination of sweet and savoury that will win over the sternest of waffle critics!
