Kaffles – Specialty Waffles at The Laneway Market every Monday and Tuesday!
Kaffles is a small F&B start-up by two friends, Kenny Huang and Kimberley Yeo. They wanted a simple name and thought to inject a twist to the word “waffles” by replacing the first letter with the initials of both of their names. Hence, the name, Kaffles.
Both owners have been in the F&B industry for two years. Kenny Huang is the owner and operator of 2IC Catering Pte Ltd. Kenny wakes up at 4am every morning to prepare breakfast for 500 residents in Eusoff Hall, a hall of residence in the National University of Singapore. Kimberley Yeo is the owner of Mean Bean & Wicked Grind, a tiny café along Beach Road that has now closed its doors and moved online to focus on a cake delivery and wholesale business.
Kimberley has always wanted a waffles and ice cream shop but she knows how hard it is to set up a new business in the F&B industry especially with the labour crunch so she has been actively looking for spaces that allow co-sharing. She was thrilled when the owner of The Laneway Market agreed to her proposal of co-sharing the space on Saturday nights.
Their signature waffle will be the Thai Milk Tea Kaffles ($12.90) which is a Thai milk tea infused waffle that has gone through many hours of research and experimenting to achieve that cakey and doughy texture with a light crisp. The Thai milk tea drizzle is also the product of countless hours of work before it was perfected.
Catching on to the recent craze of coconut ice cream, Kenny has also come up with a gula Melaka ($11.90) combination that features a scoop of island coconut ice cream and red ruby on buttermilk waffles. I actually love this one because of its thick gula melaka, just that it’s a lil on the sweet side.
For patrons who prefer to stick to good old classics, there is always the Klassic Kaffles(from $9.50) that sees buttermilk waffles topped with their choice of ice cream, complete with maple syrup. Kaffles is proud to be the first to launch the “drumstick” waffles in Singapore. With an inverted chocolate coated cone brightened with rainbow sprinkles sitting atop the ice cream.
Other specialty waffles include Nutella Kinder Bueno Kaffles($11.90) and Speculoos Cookie Crunch Kaffles ($11.90) which are buttermilk waffles topped with homemade drizzles and a scoop of premium vanilla bean ice cream
Kaffles will be launching more specialty waffles along the way and are already looking into an earl grey infused waffles and maybe more exciting options such as tom yum infused waffles!
