Belgium may be the traditional home of the waffle, but Cape Town’s got several dedicated waffle cafes that have mastered the art of making sweet and savoury variations of these treats.

Here are three of the best, including a spot that serves up gluten-free, vegan delights:


Even if you’re not vegan, this cool cafe in Dunkley Square, Gardens is the place to come for dessert.

Jessica Berry creates an enticing menu of sweet and savoury waffles that are both vegan and gluten-free. “I love feeding people and I always valued nostalgia. I wanted to sell something that makes people happy,” says Jessy.

She uses a special combination of tapioca, rice and chickpea flour and describes her waffles as crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. Dairy-free ice cream, vegan mozzarella, and coco-caramel, keep all waffles and toppings vegan-friendly and delicious.

The current best-selling waffle is The Frittafle, a cheesy (vegan) courgette base served with avocado and home-made beetroot hummus.
