Nutella Chocobar & Peanut Butter Waffle Pops: Discover The Best Waffles In Chennai
Located in Chetpet, Waf O'Bel is set up in a modified house and serves the crunchiest waffles in town. Try their Red Velvet waffles and the Red Carpet. The Red Carpet is served with your choice of fruit and whipped cream, and next summer don’t forget to dig into their Mango waffles, which we personally loved.
For those of you looking for some savouries, dig into their Waans. They serve two types of Waans, which are soft waffles stuffed with Mushroom or Paneer with a dash of spicy flavours.
Waffles Thru The Day
Fancy some English breakfast with fresh, brown waffles? Waffles Thru The Day is the place to be! Our recommendations from their drool-worthy menu would be The All Day Brekkies. Relish hot sausages, hash browns and whole waffles. We also liked their thick pancakes and fresh fruit juices. Their Classic waffle made with buttermilk was easily our favourite. They have a Sunday brunch with waffles as well.
Take a break from dessert studios and head to this eatery by the bay. Kalo’s menu has plenty of small bites, pasta and pizzas, but skip to the last page, and you will be surprised. The Classic Belgian waffles are served like our favourite choco bars. Yes! Hold on to the stick and relish some chocolatey waffles. And their Nutella choco waffle bar is definitely a must-try. They have an interesting range of Waffle Pops too. We loved digging into their crispy Chocolate & Peanut Butter Crunch and the thick and very filling Salted Caramel, Whipped Cream & Banana. Heaven!
The Miner Diner
If there is one place in Chennai that you could be called waffle paradise, then it has to be The Miner Diner. They serve cheesy, meaty waffles too! They have plenty of Desi waffle sliders, savouries and pizzas to choose from. Don't forget to bite into their Bolognese Waffle. Bring out the kid in you, by going for their Rainbow’s End. It is served with dripping maple syrup topped with gems, candy and lots of chocolate.
196 Degree Below
Located in a pretty corner in Alwarpet, 196 Degree Below offers a whole lot of desserts! Known as the dessert lab that serves fresh ice cream and syringe toppings, the place serves more than ten varieties of waffles with special Liquid Nitrogen ice cream (LN2) ice creams. We loved trying the Waffle with Chocolate Fudge sauce and LN2 chocolate ice cream. Do check these out with the classic honey and maple syrups too! They have some strange combinations too. Ever imagined some paan or Rooh Afza with your waffles? You can try it out here.
Westfield is not your usual dessert cafe. The small little stall in Besant Nagar beach serves waffle sticks. Their Lolly waffles are thin, yummy and perfect for a takeaway. The Nutella Lolly and the White Chocolate Lolly were the yummiest. Dark Chocolate lovers, you could grab a stick or two and relish these long waffles topped with the right amount of sauces and dusted sugar. Also worth hogging are their sweet waffle sandwiches.
