Wafflicious: Delicious Waffles in Sheraton Heliopolis

Wafflicious is a
tiny café in Sheraton Heliopolis that offers mouth-watering and delicious waffles with only
one branch in Cairo
and another soon to open in the 5th Settlement.

The café is
actually made up of a simple counter, with a young man behind it preparing the
waffles single-handedly. Understandably; quick service is next to impossible if
the shop is packed.   

At the time
of this reviewer’s visit, the young man behind the counter was too friendly
with lots of remarks. If their waffles weren’t so deliciously good, we would
have left.

is tiny with no seating whatsoever; which is a nuisance if you are hanging out
with a big group of friends.

The waffles’
batter has been prepared in advance, which may make you question its freshness.
You can have either the thick Belgian waffles or the thin American waffles: opt
for the light and crispy if you have a full stomach. The thick and moist waffle
is optimal if you are feeling peckish.

Without a
menu to peruse, basic waffles cost 15LE with four toppings to choose from: chocolate
spread (supposedly Nutella), white chocolate syrup, caramel syrup or honey. For
an extra 5LE, you can add as many toppings as you want; provided that you  choose either chocolate or fruits. Adding ice cream to your waffles is also an option.

Apart from
the traditionally shaped waffle-makers, Wafflicious has the cutest Mickey Mouse-shaped
waffle maker; the perfect treat for adults and children alike.

The only
drawback to the waffles is that they send you into an overwhelming sugar-high,
especially if you choose the chocolate toppings.

is a must when your craving for waffles kicks in. But careful, you can
seriously get hooked on this stuff; you’ll keep coming back for more.

The café
offers a complimentary five-minute game of wii sports, adding a little sprinkle
of fun to your dessert experience. After all, you need the brief workout to shake
off the few extra calories. All we’re waiting for is for Wafflicious to start
branching out across Cairo.

360 Tip

You'd better have a car if you don't want to eat your waffles outside of the café sitting on the pavement.

Best Bit

Hot and delicious waffles with sinfully rich toppings.

Worst Bit

The waffles are bathed in calories. Not for the diet-conscious.
