About The Waffle Inn

There is nothing quite like a hot golden waffle that is crisp on the edges, fluffy on the inside, and laden in a delicious topping. The Waffle Inn, nestled in the tranquillity of the Natal Midlands, offers visitors and locals a range of delicious sweet and savoury waffles that are sure to tempt and tantalise.

The savoury toppings include a decadent pulled pork and jalapeno cream cheese, Moroccan beef, chicken curry, and salmon with cream cheese and capers. There are gluten-free and vegetarian options too.

The breakfast waffles are the perfect way to start a long day of exploring Howick, a small town surrounded by mountains and waterfalls. Try the Canadian waffle breakfast with bacon and maple syrup for a real waffle-wonder. The sweet options are irresistible, with options like banoffy toffee, hot fudge, poached pears and roasted nuts, chocolate mousse and vanilla ice-cream, and a choc-mint mountain.

The Waffle Inn in Howick is located on a working goat farm, where mohair is produced. The studio and gallery have gorgeous mohair products, as well as locally-made leather goods and a book shop. There are also a number of fantastic horse trails in the area. Seeing the gorgeous Midlands from the saddle is a very special experience. Other local activities include angling in one of the local fishing hotspots, clay target shooting, or visiting the iconic Pandora’s Box (where all of the locally-produced goods are complemented by a heart-warming tale).

The Waffle Inn is only 90 minutes from the airport in Durban and makes for a great stop between Durban and Johannesburg. Accommodation is only minutes away from the Waffle Inn.

Dogs are welcome if they are on leads, and little ones have a blast here (and it isn’t just the waffles). The Waffle Inn is open from Wednesday to Sunday (including public holidays) from 09h00 to 16h00.
