The Great Waffles Debate: Sweet vs Savoury

Pancake adventures in Perth: Trying out the best flavours

Waffles have been a beloved breakfast and brunch staple for centuries. However, a culinary controversy has been brewing, where food enthusiasts find themselves divided over a critical question: sweet or savoury waffles? In this post, we delve into the Great Perth Waffles Debate, exploring the arguments and preferences behind each camp and celebrating the diverse flavours that make Perth’s waffle scene so unique.

The sweet waffle camp

For many waffle enthusiasts, the idea of a crispy, fluffy waffle topped with a myriad of sweet, indulgent ingredients is the epitome of breakfast bliss. In Perth, cafes and brunch spots have embraced the sweet waffle trend, offering a delightful array of toppings and flavours to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth. From classic combinations like strawberries and whipped cream to more adventurous pairings like Nutella and banana, the options are endless.

Sweet waffle advocates argue that the combination of the waffle’s light texture and the richness of sweet toppings creates a harmonious balance of flavours. They believe that waffles are meant to be a sweet treat, providing a satisfying start to the day or a delicious dessert option. Gelare’s range of sweet waffles range from the classic waffle to more adventurous ice cream flavours like Honey Malt Crunch, Caramel Fudge Brownie and Cappucino

The savoury waffle camp

On the other side of the debate, the savoury waffle camp stands strong, proclaiming that waffles are not limited to being a vessel for sugar-laden toppings. Savoury waffle enthusiasts argue that the versatility of waffles allows for endless possibilities in the realm of savoury cuisine. In Perth, restaurants and brunch spots have embraced this notion, crafting savoury waffle dishes that are both creative and satisfying.

Savuory waffle proponents believe that the crispy exterior and fluffy interior of the waffle provide the perfect base for savoury ingredients like bacon, eggs, cheese, and various vegetables. They argue that the combination of these flavours creates a savoury explosion that can rival any traditional breakfast or brunch dish. Perth’s culinary scene has responded with gusto, offering savoury waffle options such as fried chicken and waffles, smoked salmon and cream cheese waffles, or even waffles topped with avocado and poached eggs.

Celebrating the diversity of waffles

While the sweet versus savoury debate rages on, it is essential to recognise and celebrate the diversity of tastes and preferences within Perth’s waffle scene. Whether you lean towards the sweet camp or the savoury camp, there is no denying that the city’s culinary landscape offers something for everyone.

Perth’s waffle establishments have become innovative in their approach to waffle-making, experimenting with ingredients, flavours, and presentation styles to cater to a wide range of palates. This creativity has transformed waffles into a versatile canvas for culinary expression, allowing Perth’s chefs to push the boundaries of traditional breakfast fare.
