March 25th is International Waffles Day, so what better way to celebrate than with some of the very best waffles in London.
Originally made with wine, the concept of waffles has been known since the 14th century. Since then it has evolved into the hot grid-iron pressed, fluffy delightfulness we have today. Whether it’s for breakfast, brunch or dinner, waffles know no time frame giving the perfect base for both sweet and savoury dishes to satisfy all of your cravings all day long.
Restaurants across the city are all trying to give their personal touch on the comfort food classic, so we’ve rounded up the best places for waffles in London for you to celebrate International Waffle Day!
Waffles are usually associated with casual comfort food, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fancy. Of course 1st on the list of locations should be Duck and Waffle.
Considering it’s the highest restaurant in the UK, on the 40th floor of Heron Tower, you can’t beat a brunch with a side of some of the best views of the capital. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the waffles are a must-order here. The restaurant’s signature Elvis Waffles with chocolate, peanut butter, banana brulee and chantilly cream really shouldn’t be missed. Fancy something savoury? Try the waffle with crispy confit duck leg topped with a fried duck egg and drizzled in mustard maple syrup. You won’t be disappointed.

In 2013 in New York whilst eating, drinking and enjoying life, two friends began to develop an idea for a new NYC-inspired food and cocktail concept. The concept turned into a reality for the 1st time just off High Street Kensington and Dirty Bones was born. Now the restaurant expanded from Kensington to Carnaby, Soho and all the way to Shoreditch.
The mini chain specialises in American comfort food offering a menu of mouthwatering stacked burgers, classic mac ‘n’ cheese, and of course, chicken and waffles. At Dirty Bones, you will find crispy fried chicken served on a freshly-baked waffle, accompanied by a shot of maple syrup so that you can adjust the extent of sticky and sweet to your own preference.
Where: Kingly Court, W1B 5PW; 20 Kensington Church Street, W8 4EP; 304 The Westgate, Queen Street, OX1 1TR; 1 Club Ro, E1 6JX; 14 Denman Street, W1D 7HJ

The Good Life Eatery is open from breakfast to dinner with highlights including their granola and salads full of all the good stuff. However, a must order is their paleo chestnut and almond waffles with homemade fig jam, coconut yogurt and maple syrup. They also have no wifi, so switch off for a relaxed morning, and enjoy your freshly baked pillow of goodness.
