Pandan waffle stalls are dwindling in favour of hip cafes. But if you’re a big fan like us, here’s where you can still find them in Singapore.
We don’t know about you, but we think the traditional pandan waffles you’ll find in Singapore trump regular cafe waffles any time of day. There’s just something about the fragrant aroma, chewy texture, and simple fillings that keep us coming back for more. Not to mention, it evokes the nostalgia of our childhood pre-social media. Yeap, those days when affordable no-frills snacks priced at a dollar or less were enough to satisfy us. Craving a bite? Here’s where you can find the best pandan waffles in Singapore.
Best traditional pandan waffles in Singapore
1. Moon River Cake Shop
Alright, westies. This one’s for you. Moon River Cake Shop is just a stone’s throw from Yew Tee MRT station. And its pandan waffles come with a variety of spreads like strawberry jam, red bean, kaya and cheese. No wonder it’s a hot spot for hungry boys serving National Service at the nearby Stagmont camp.
Moon River Cake Shop, #01-232, Yew Tee Square, 624 Choa Chu Kang Street 62, Singapore 680624
2. Baker Talent
This little bakery in Bishan sells delish bakes like Korean creamy garlic bread and cheesy lava tarts. But one thing you can’t miss on the menu is its traditional pandan waffles. We found the ones here a little thicker than usual – but if you like your waffles with extra filling, this is the place for you.

3. Rui Tak Bakery
If you prefer your pandan waffles on the thinner side, hit up Rui Tak Bakery in Ang Mo Kio. You can get them with more than one flavour, or with a slice of cheese if that’s your jam. Prefer something savoury? Throw in a slice of otah. We love that this traditional bakery in Singapore also doles out old school biscuits, cakes and snacks you can pick up while waiting for your waffle.

4. Bakery Cuisine
Most pandan waffles in Singapore can be found in the heartlands. But you’ll be pleased to know that Bakery Cuisine sells these pocket-friendly sweets at Raffles Place MRT station. If you’re looking to get one for breakfast before work, just take note these waffles are pretty big – so beware of the oncoming food coma.

5. Prima Deli
Ahh, the Prima Deli pandan waffles are in a league of their own. Its outlets are the ones to visit if you’re worried about the quality of what you’re paying for. Think fluffy, perfectly cooked waffles with generous spreads of your choice. You’ll want to keep an eye out for its limited edition flavours as well. Just this year, it’s put out creations like cookies ‘n’ cream and Kit Kat.

6. Garden Pastry & Cake
Garden Pastry & Cake has already made a name for itself with its decadent crispy yam mooncakes and sweet potato Swiss rolls. But we recommend you get to know its delicious pandan waffles, too. The best part about this joint is you get to customise the doneness of your treat. Like it extra soft or extra crispy? You got it.

7. Traditional Waffle
Think bigger is better? You’ll have to head down to Traditional Waffle. This food stall is located within the Malaysia Boleh food court at AMK Hub and serves up thick and huge pandan waffles. It’s a little pricier than the ones you’ll find at your usual neighbourhood stall, but you can get yours filled with a thick durian spread, or with hot dogs and cheese. Delish!
