The Top 8 Places To Get Unreal Waffles In Dubai
Go on, get tasting!
Is it just us or are waffles making a comeback?
With lashings of cream, chocolate or syrup these guys aren't going to win any healthy eating awards but they're so frickin' delicious you just have to treat yourself once in a while.
Here are the few we reckon are worth the few extra minutes (or hours?) on the treadmill...
8.The Farm, Al Barrari
Okay so waffles don't all HAVE to be gluttonous, sinful treats. Come to this really cool spot for a waffle you won't feel guilty about tomorrow. We recommend the Wholemeal one - a tasty treat topped with shaved coconut with orange and mango preserve.
7. Yummy Waffle Cafe - Festival City
The name says it all really...and it's got pictures of the food on the menu (which obviously makes a tough waffle decision decidedly easier). The waffle with banana and honey is the perfect mix of savory (ish!) and sweet. Yummy.
6. Clinton Street Baking Company
Definitely a Lovin favourite these guys made Brinner (breakfast for dinner) a thing! Their Fried Chicken & Waffles combines both, fried chicken with a crispy Belgian vanilla buttermilk waffle, honey-Tobasco and warm maple butter syrup...we love it because it's not your average waffle.
5. Granny's Waffles - Dubai Mall
We're not 100% sure we love the name of this place but what we do love is their sheer selection of waffles and the ridiculously big portions! Go for the Royal Banana Waffle...Basically a yummy waffle topped with Nutella, bananas and crushed nuts.
4. Cafe Bateel - DIFC
This waffle kinda has everything you want. Belgian waffle (classic) with mixed berries (super healthy), icing sugar (who doesn't love a little bit of sugar?), chocolate sauce (essential), and whipped cream (delish).
You can find this place all over the city so you're never going to be too far from these bad boys.
3. IHOP - International House Of Pancakes
There may not be a michelin star chef commanding these kitchens but even so these guys know good waffles. Come on a Saturday and truly indulge with their Belgian Waffle Combo. You classic (and of course delicious) Belgian waffle with your choice of beef bacon strips or veal sausages.
2. Le Pain Quotidien - Marina Mall
A step above your average chain, we're big fans of this spot. Plain and simply done, their Belgian waffle comes with berries and maple syrup. It's the quality that's key here and they're certainly not lacking that.
1. Cocoa Room - Al Safa
Only new to Dubai these guys came out of nowhere to take the top spot! The hype behind Cocoa Room did not disappoint - while their blueberry whole wheat waffle is absolutely delicious (don't let the name fool you, it's appropriately sinful) it's also impossible not to want EVERYTHING on this menu. Only open until noon each day a visit to this place will have to be planned in advance.
