Hotcakes, Pancakes & Waffles

Hotcakes, Pancakes & Waffles

One of the commonly found food items at cafes these days, some places even just have waffles / pancakes only to cater to those who have craving for them.

Spacious with indoor and outdoor seatings, instead of the previous white minimalist they transformed it to a warm cozy area with exposed brick walls, in-house plants and warm lights. It reminds me of a cafe in Melbourne, can you guess which?

Summer Fruits Waffles ($18) is both aesthetically pleasant and vegan friendly. Made with sourdough waffles, it is a joyful jumble of berries, caramelised fig, housemade granola and vanilla ice cream. Compared to buttermilk waffles, this is more chewy and dense but it doesn’t taste sour at all.


Midweek matcha treat! Check out FuelX, the newest cafe by Refuel group at Potong Pasir area. Their Matcha Pancake, which is fancier than your regular pancakes, is also available at this outlet.

Stack of matcha-infused pancakes served with banana, berries, matcha ice cream, a dusting of pistachio and drizzled in matcha sauce. Pancake is light but wishes there was a strong taste of matcha.

Perennial favourite @goodwoodparksg Durian Fiesta is backkkkkk!

Happening from 8 March to 1 August 2021, bask in the ambrosial decadence of handcrafted D24 and ‘Mao Shan Wang’ durian pastries. I was delighted to see the new creations has local touches, while stellar classic such as D24 Mousse Cake or D24 puff is too yummy to give it a miss.

Who knew Pandan and durian goes so well together? As evident in the fragrant new D24 Pandan Waffle Cake and D24 Kueh Dadar both generously filled with D24.

Rustic walls with drapes, I felt as if we were transported to an alley cafe in Penang. But there’s no need to travel since this is the second outlet of the halal-certified ice-cream cafe @threesacrowdcafe.

Settled for the Oreo Mint and Berry Cheesecake along with classic Maple Waffles ($13). Decent but unremarkable, waffles were slightly flat and the flavours taste like those from a $1 old school ice cream cart.

P.S: they are on Burpple Beyond now


Say Hay~ Cozy cafe for unique gelato flavours at Bedok. Limited seatings inside (3 tables), but they have more outdoor seatings at night.

I’m not a fan of their slightly dense waffles, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well-balanced fresh strawberries and balsamic vinegar can be. No wonder it’s their popular flavour! Matcha is quite intense, great for the first few bites but it leaves a bitter aftertaste

Located near Boon Keng MRT, the minimalist cafe focus mainly on coffee, but also offer freshly churned gelato with crispy golden waffles ($5.50) or espresso waffles ($6.50)

Other than the classics, they offer unique gelato flavours such as Lemoncurd with Speculoos Bits and Bailey’s. It worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Opening special! This dreamy creation is made of sweet and tangy Chitose strawberries, velvety cream cheese and homemade strawberry jelly sandwiched between delicate soufflé pancakes cloaked in a handcrafted strawberries-blended cream. Be sure to try it before 30 November 2020 .


In the hearts of Telok Ayer, this new creperie is a lovely addition to the area. Interior is on the point, with teal booth seatings, tropical vibes and cozy corners.

Made from gluten-free buckwheat flour, the french-style Galette is assembled with savoury ingredients and there are up to 11 options available. We went for No.04 ($17), a chiffonade of ham, organic egg sunny side up, sautéed mushrooms, and Comté cheese. The crusty galette is well executed and each bite was a forkful of comfort.

As for sweet crepes, check out the Raspberry Jam version ($11). Simple crepe adorned with fresh berries and @bopgelato strawberry basil ice cream, it is bursting with summery flavours!

More waffles and gelato for you? Hidden at a corner, the fairly new @pintsandcones is just a bus stop away from NEX.

Offering gelato and beer, a Double Scoop Gelato with Signature Waffles set you back by only $11. With common flavours like Chocolate and Pistachio, we decided to go for something more unique.

We paired the refreshing sorbet Elderflower Lime with sweet Bandung (rose syrup infused gelato). It was well balanced as Bandung can get too sweet, plus they serve pretty decent crispy buttermilk waffles.


Love their Butterscotch Banana Pancake but I can’t say the same for the Strawberry Maple Pancake. The thick pancake was generously topped with fresh strawberries and strawberry compote, accompanied with maple syrup and butter. Strawberries helps balance the sweetness but as it was kinda dense, we couldn’t quite finish it.


A sweet treat laced with fresh berries, berries compote, half sliced poached pear, candy nut, almond flakes, maple syrup, and vanilla ice cream. Slightly doughy and dry, I was kinda disappointed by their pancakes this time.


How to resist cloud-like Japanese soufflés pancakes especially when it’s light and sweet! So when we visit Chef Pang’s newest outlet at Millenia Walk, we ordered not one but two of these jiggly soufflés pancakes.

Light-as-air, the Earl Grey Bubble Tea is thickly slathered with Earl Grey Tea creme chantilly and topped with house-made tapioca pearls. But at the price I’m paying and for that small puny portion, I doubt I will be back.
