taipei’s best belgium waffles

July 10, 2012

I made a bet with a friend and sworn off Belgium waffles for the next 3 months. As of late, I’ve been trying to find all the Belgium waffles there is in Taipei and I’m proud to say that I have a pretty good list of where to go for this irresistable treat. I actually haven’t found too many places selling them yet but I think it’s definiteley trending. This also leads into the decision of why I took the bet to stop eating Belgium waffles for the sake of my health and competition (I’m secretly a very competitive person HAH). In return, he promises to quit his weakness for chocolate bars for the same amount of time. Bring it ON.

1) B. waffle (鬆餅。班)
No. 138, Section 4, Shìmín Blvd, Daan District, Taipei

B.waffle sells plain waffles 60 with an additional charge for caramel or chocolate sauce. I like their waffles the best because it isn’t too sweet and the outside is very crispy almost croissant-like for the first 0.5 second you bite into it. HEAVEN. However, my last visit to the store was very dissapointing. The waffle maker too a bunch of pre-made waffles and reheated it on the grill. I ended up receiving a waffle that was undercooked on the sides, not crispy, and had chocolate stains on them. He probably slacked off because the boss wasn’t around because I refuse to believe they would do something like that when their selling purely Belgium waffles & coffee. Nonetheless, elevator parking is right next door and the place is tiny with very few seatings.  Their simplistic packaging and store design definetley speaks to a trendier crowd.

2) Mr. PAPA WAFFLE & CAFE 比利時鬆餅專賣店
No. 467, Sōngshān Rd, Sinyi District, Taipei

Mr. PAPA is the reason I got hooked on Belgium waffles like a druggie. So far they are the best in service and makes fresh waffles that are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Personally, their waffles are slightly too eggy and sweet for me but I’m just being picky. Mr.PAPA is just one stop down the blue MRT line from Taipei City Hall.

3) Muffin Princess 鬆餅公主Cafe
No. 50, Lane 31, Section 1, Dà’ān Rd, Daan District, Taipei

 I liked the waffles at Muffin Princess a whole lot but the portion is for two and the interior and name is a little too girly for my taste. Although, the name has grown on me and I’d become really ditzy when saying it. Don’t ask. I ordered this to go but decided to eat it immediately when I discovered that they packed an ice-cream in the take out bag (I hate melted ice-cream). Their waffles are made like a dessert and comes with two pieces of waffles, whipped cream, brown sugar syrup, and matcha ice-cream 170. I thought the ice-cream was great and the taste and texture of the waffles were just right.

4) The Lobby of Simple Kaffa (Hotel V)
No. 48, Lane 177, Section 1, Dūnhuà South Road, Songshan District, Taipei

The waffles in this trendy boutique hotel was equally as good as the ones above. It is on the sweeter side which I don’t usually prefer but it still made me beg for more. Again, the portion size is made for two so bring a date! More more more.

5) Glacio 比利時創意冰品咖啡館 (ATT 4 Fun)
3 FL No. 12, Song Shou Rd. Xinyi District, Taipei

You would think the Belgium waffles at a Belgium Cafe would be good but their waffles were terrible! This cost me 60 and they charge another 15 for maple syrup. A rip-off if you ask me. The waffle was soft, undercooked, unevenly cooked, and it wasn’t sweet at all. Underneath my dinky piece of waffle was a deformed mini waffle. Strange. Yet this tinier piece was crispier but I was still turned off by how not sweet it was.

I have also tried Belgium Waffles from HieloKimmi Food & Drinks, and Whimsical which were all pretty mediocre at best.

UGH. Now I want some…

    Hey..i have seen you blog and it seems like you are very into waffles. Mee too…and i found a place with the best waffles in taipei…in my oppinion.
    The name of the shop is yellowhite. It is in zhonghe, not easy to find but they have reaaaally good waffles and also pancakes. It has a german taste, you should try the baileys n cream waffle…i would die for that. The waffle is fesh made, so still hot and they put ice cream on it with homemade baileys cream….it just have the perfect match….yumm.
    Let me know if you like it or not 😉

        zhong he or Mr. papas? I’m always down for waffles (but prefer someone else to test them beforehand haha)! I’ll see if i can squeeze out more info from my friend, bc that zhonghe waffle place sounds exactly like her description but being german she couldnt tell me the chinese name or location!

        Hello, the chinese name is 黃白小屋!
        They have simple things, don’t expect pork knuckle…but all their stuff is sooooo yummy. At the moment they have a winter menu, also very good.

        Hi Sandy,

        I actually went to check it out with Superbaked not too long ago! We liked the sausage but the pretzel was the best. We thought the crepe and waffles were only okay. Their winter menu does sound pretty interesting!

        Thanks for the suggestion :D! It also allowed me and Kimmy from Superbaked to explore Yonghe for the first time and we were quite impressed.

        Oh really? Which desserts did you guys take? Sorry that wasn’t your taste, but i really felt on love with their desserts…haha, maybe it is just me^^.
        This place in yonghe is getting more and more popular, specially when it is nice weather. The park over there is really nice ans there are openingup more and more restaurants.
        So, at your oppinion, which are the best waffle you had in taipei???

        Dear Sandy,

        Sorry for the super late response as I now have a new blog and don’t frequent this one as much. I just wrote about a new belgium waffle cafe near Ren Ai Circle called Dears Waffles that you can read about here. I highly recommend sitting down and ordering their waffles and drinks. Other than Dears Waffle, I also enjoy B Waffle, and Mr. Papa. Please let me know what you think if you ever get a chance to visit either one :)!
