MS Waffles

Contact Ms. Waffles: 084 692 3324

Ms. Waffles is a modern twist on the traditional Belgium waffle, created by owners Mallory & Segan.

The mission in mind was to develop a Great Gourmet Waffle… On a Stick! MS Waffles brings together a sophisticated and fun street food dessert that everyone can enjoy.

The creamy waffle batter was mastered in the kitchen of a passionate Mum & Dad, who believed in the dream of their entrepreneurial daughter… And so, with a dash of inspiration, a dollop of decadence, a spoonful of flavour and a sprinkle of love, Mum created the most delicious “crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside” waffle you could ever bite into. At Ms waffles you are able to build your own waffle dipped in some of the best Belgian chocolate available whilst still having the option to top it with decadent  toppings such as 24k rose gold petals!
