We love Waffle On for the great coffee and the freshest baguettes and Belgian waffles. It is a little "hole in the wall" type cafe close to Flinders street station and on the edge of the busy Degreaves street eateries. The service is very efficient and friendly from the French host Mark and his assistant. We always make a point... More

It's a hole in the wall and all about simple reliable good baguette sandwiches and fresh crisp Belgian waffles made to the owners precise standards and apparently Liege style waffles. It's a viewing spot if you stand and eat there, and the fresh baguettes make a good crunch as you chew and watch the crowd.

Best waffles we've had in ages!!! Note the hot chocolate sauce is dark chocolate. We enjoyed every bite of it! 😊

We decided to visit Waffle On for a sweet treat whilst we were in the CBD. It is in a very convenient location on Degraves St, right near an entrance to Flinders Street station. We got one waffle with jam and the other with Nutella, as we were on the go. We thought the pricing at $5.00 was fairly reasonably... More

Cassidy – After having burgers for lunch with work mates a couple of us topped off the outing with a waffle from Waffle On. I got a waffle with maple syrup and whipped cream. Unfortunately, it was pretty disappointing. The waffle was chewy/doughy and just overall not enjoyable. In comparison to Waffee, Waffle On falls flat. On the plus side... More

Went during a Saturday morning. Two people at the counter, with the lady taking my order and the guy making the coffee. The coffee was done well and in a reasonable amount of time, but I was still waiting for my waffle. When I looked on the board, I saw that I had been overcharged as they have a combo... More

A local recommended this gem and I am sure glad I gave it a try. The Nutella waffle was to-die-for. Honestly, I wanted to try them all and had a hard time choosing just one. The worker (owner) helped me make my final selection. He was super friendly and very personable. I highly recommend this joint.

The shop is at a exit of subway. We nearly skipped the shop because you didn't think it is a shop selling waffle unless the signboard "Waffle On". We ordered a plain waffle with icing sugar and a waffle with cream. The waffle smelled good. The outer layer was crispy and the inside was moist. It was one of the... More

Cutest Little place to pick up a waffle on your way to work and they have fantastic choice of toppings to place on your waffle. The french gentleman at the counter is always so kind and welcoming and the food is brilliant especially on a cold Winter's day in Melbourne!

This is a great spot, and if you are in the area you should stop in! The owner is hands on and cares about the craft. Excellent coffee, waffles, and sandwiches

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
