I'm not exaggerating when I say these guys do the best waffles ever! Coffee is strong and well made. Service is slow but definitely worth it.

Our daughter, the sophisticated UK resident, found the look of this venue rather off putting - very 'home made' and 'provincial'! That aside, this small cafe just near her Dad's business, is a convenient place for a cup of coffee and for those who are less watchful of the waistline, a waffle. I found it rather odd on a recent... More

We were a table of 8 for Sunday lunch, very good thing we booked as the place was quite busy. The other foods my friends ordered seemed good but I came particularly for the waffles, which turned out to be fresh and light and delicious. I wish I had ordered two waffles at once due to the long wait for... More

I was last at this café at the beginning of the year and my experience was a shocker as written. It has since undergone a name change to "Paolettos" but the menu is still the same and unfortunately, still no change in their dismal slow service. Was invited to have waffles with friends visiting from abroad. A table of 12... More

This restaurant has now changed its name to "Paolettos" and is owned by an Italian family. They have kept the Belgian waffles on their menu and are still as good as ever. I have eaten there a number of times (since they changed ownership) and it has been really good - their toasted sandwiches are amazing if you like a... More

They have the best Belgium waffles I have ever eaten. The waffles are golden crispy with delicious toppings to pick from. Dutch apple or banana and caramel to name a few. They also make savoury waffles with bacon, egg and cheese and croquettes are also available.

The name has changed to Paoletto - the food has improved and not only are the waffles out of this world, but they serve other food too. You can have lunch or breakfast- and have a waffle any hour of he day! I had a strawberry waffle - light and so so tasty! The banana waffle was great and the... More

This must be one of the best places in South Africa to have a "real" waffle. They have a large selection of toppings both sweat and savoury. My wife opted for the health option but then made it not so healthy by adding two scoops of ice cream. The waffle was home made and really great. I went for the... More
