The fragrant waffle ($6.80) was dense, chewy and had a light crisp. The range of icecream available is outsourced and I'll suggest that you skip them but the waffles are definitely worth a try. Prices are very wallet-friendly and they have quite an extensive menu. I'll love to give their pasta dishes a go someday.

16) Olla Specialty Coffee
The baristas at Olla seemed really serious about their coffee! Unfortuntately, the coffee wasn't as robust as we had hoped. Other items on the menu includes toasts and waffles. 

Nearest MRT : Clementi
109 Clementi Street 11, #01-03
Singapore 120109
Daily : 8am - 5pm 
17) Burnt Cones
Sunset Way is getting more happening! Here's the latest addition to the once quiet neighbourhood. Burnt Cones opens really early so if you're someone who loves to start your day with a scoop of icecream, at like 7am, here's the place for you. I guess more people will be coming by for their morning cuppa instead, but you know, the possibility of having gelato at 7am does sound exciting, doesn't it? 
We tried the waffle which took a really long time to arrive. It was quite dense, not crisp, and also quite bland. It was a tad disappointing, but here's hoping that they iron out the kinks!

Nearest MRT : Clementi
105 Clementi Street 12, #01-02, Singapore 120105
