Waffles are a must!

Lovely outdoors setting at Waffle Monkey

Not so much a coffee house, more a delightful hang out in the heart of George Town which makes the most amazing waffles, Waffle Monkey also serves up a lovely, generously-sized cup of coffee as well.

A relatively new addition to George Town’s casual eateries, Waffle Monkey has never-the-less quickly gained a loyal following of diners loving their unique dining experience. People drop in for breakfast if they’ve been out cycling all morning or perhaps are seeking a laid-back lunch option that feels like it’s a bit of a treat. Dine inside the cool a/c or outside under their bright red shades for a pleasant road-side perfect people-watching spot.

First established in Costa Rica, Waffle Monkey expanded its reach to Cayman a couple of years ago and found a ready and willing customer base eager to try their delicious waffles. Old school waffles served with just a dusting of icing sugar are a must for the uninitiated to get the full flavour of the waffles, but you can be free with the embellishments if you want. The Cinnabun is a popular choice with diners, a handmade Belgian waffle topped with powdered sugar cinnamon sugar, walnuts and condensed milk. Try their namesake Waffle Monkey – a handmade Belgian waffle topped with powdered sugar, banana, local honey and coconut, or their naughty but nice Churro – a handmade Belgian waffle topped with melted butter, cinnamon sugar that is liberally served with a chocolate or caramel dipping sauce.

For those customers who don’t have quite such a sweet tooth, there are savoury options available, including their Big Breakfast – a handmade Belgian waffle loaded with ham and cheese, topped with herb butter, Parmesan cheese and a fried egg, or perhaps their Salty Pig, which is a handmade Belgian waffle topped with powdered sugar and crispy bacon and which bridges the salty and sweet gap nicely. In a thoughtful touch, their waffles can be made gluten free or vegan upon request, however they don’t serve soy milk as a non-dairy milk option (which really does make the best vegan coffee, in this writer’s opinion.) A latte is priced at CI$5 but you get a really good whack of coffee which is not in any way bitter and ends up being good value for money because of its superior taste.
