There’s nothing like the comfort of a warm fluffy pancake or sinking your teeth into a nice crunchy side of a waffle. With a variety of toppings to go with, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, ice cream and much more, we haven’t really met anyone who has a deep hatred of pancakes. If you are, we can’t be friends. Pancake/waffle enthusiasts we are, it’s our duty to hunt down cafes/restaurants that serve the best pancakes/waffles according to our standards. We take this very seriously. Shall we begin?
The Red Beanbag
A modern contemporary Australian-inspired café, The Red Beanbag has lots to offer. The Skyscraper Pancake Stack is a must-try! Six fluffy pancakes stack up with a side of fresh strawberries, caramelized bananas and maple syrup to drizzle on top. Oh and the café is home to the Malaysian Barista Champion. The best of both worlds under one roof, pancakes and coffee!

Acme Bar & Coffee
Acme Bar & Coffee is all about comfort food with a familiar feel to it. If you’re looking for a healthier pancake option, then you should try the tasty Pear and Buckwheat Pancakes.

The highlight, Acme’s very own cranberry butter add an interesting twist to the dish with a dash of nutmeg in the pancakes, this is a definitely a must-try!

The Soda Factory
The people behind The Tapping Tapir sodas and The Potong artisan popsicles are the owners of this sweet establishment. Known for their variety of sodas to choose from, the Soda Factory is also known for their sourdough waffles! The waffles serve here are pretty dense, its not your average light and and fluffy ones that we all grew to love. Nonetheless, they are delicious and the waffles comes with Nutella sauce, strawberries and vanilla ice cream.

Hands down! McDonald’s pancakes are not only affordable, they are pretty darn good. The pancakes come with pre-packaged super sweet syrup and butter, the pancakes served are perfectly round and soft. We think that there is nothing better than a back to basis kind of pancakes. Simplicity at its best.
