Today is a special day. Wondering what it could be on a random Thursday? Well, it’s International Waffles Day.

We love waffles, from classic Belgian style waffles to savoury heart-shaped ones. Each restaurant has its own spin on toppings too; you can get fresh berries with whipped mascarpone or for a more substantial dinner time option, cheese, chicken, and veggies on sourdough waffles. The topping possibilities seem endless. The beautiful fluffy, hot grid-iron pressed indulgence is like a blank canvas for scrumptious ingredients to rest upon.

To celebrate the day, we’ve put together few casual spots in Guwahati to go to for a sweet waffle experience that deliver quality. Check ‘em out!

The Belgian Waffle Co.

If you’re a Waffle fan, then The Belgian Waffle Co. is the place to be. An all-day happy spot, bursting with a yummy selection of sweet delights, their classic Maple Butter, Dark & White Fantasy, Kiki & Cream, and Cotton Candy are some of the best-sellers! If you’re looking for fruity flavours, opt for Mango White Chocolate, Blueberry Creamcheese, and Strawberry Creamcheese.

Waffle Stories

This dessert parlour is a must-visit if you love waffles. Their menu is expansive and features some regular and unique variants. We highly recommend their Double Scoop Sundae Waffles, American Classic, Mixed Berry, Cinnamon and Apple, Fruit Exotica, and signature Gulab Jamun Waffle. But if you still can’t find your preferred flavour, they also have options for customisations.
