Crisp, smooth, syrupy, chocolate-coated waffles topped with a generous scoop of ice-cream are the dessert trend these days. With new outlets cropping up in each part of Delhi, it is becoming increasingly hard to candidly walk by them without dropping in for a warm bite of heaven. 

Although most places offer an assortment of dessert toppings such as Nutella, blueberry, mango, toffee, there are quite a few savory options that incorporate cheese, eggs, and bacon.

With a plethora of outlets under your nose, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be gorging on waffles every week. What you beseech is a bucket list of waffle places, and I have curated one to save you the effort. Thank me later.

1. Wenger's Deli

Kartik Sharma

Your search for city's best waffles ends here. The quality of waffles prepared by Wenger's Deli is unparalleled, the waffles are crunchy yet smooth enough in texture such that you can cut them using a plastic fork and knife. The best part is that you get a full round waffle with ice cream instead of only a quarter. Nutella waffle with vanilla ice cream and nougat and blueberry waffle is always a hit at this place. 

WhereA-18, Radial Road, Connaught Place, New Delhi

Cost: ₹120-220

2. Old Town Cafe

Shubhangi Kashyap

This quaint little gem of a place serves lip-smacking food (tried and tested). Their signature thin and warm waffles will remind you of homelike comfort, so would the interiors. The cafe is understaffed, thus, you would probably have to wait a while before your order arrives. The way I see it, you get more time to chill and chat. 

Where: 111, Ground Floor, Near UCO Bank, Shahpur Jat, New Delhi

Cost: ₹160-180

3. IHop

Anirudh Krishnan

This international brand might be renowned for thick, delectable pancakes but the waffles here are equally heavenly, if not more. The variety of waffle toppings is a bonus because both sweet and savory kinds are on the menu. What's more is that they provide four types of syrups (maple syrup, strawberry, blueberry, butter pecan) on every table. A pricier option but definitely worth splurging.
