Waffee House – Cafe – Waffle + Coffee
‘Life is short, eat dessert first,’ is indeed a life mantra for the likes of those of us, who can always make room for dessert. So, when we first heard about this dessert heaven, we had to do a double take. Staring at the sign, it had us wondering if we had misread it or had they misspelt it? But what d’ya know, Waffee is Waffles and Coffee-which by the way, is the most electrifying combination if you ask us, more so on bustling weekdays. Sigh!
Now that we’ve got the name sorted out, let’s just scrap the rest and get straight to the point. Waffles can be typically overshadowed by the brunch bigwigs like pancakes and crepes, but Waffee house is here to especially show some love to this golden brown, buttery breakfast staple, while still glorifying its counterparts. In plain words, the menu boasts of Belgian waffles and dutch pancake varieties along with a host of mojitos, mocktails and thick shakes.
This humble, quaint Cafe at Bendorewell can get pretty busy and crowded, so you might have to wait for a table, but it’s worth it as they rustle up some seriously divine waffles. You’re sure to chow on something here that takes your fancy. For instance, chocolate lovers, go in for the Nasty Nutella-mini Dutch pancakes with generous squirts of Nutella and loaded with choco chips. Another option would be the Triple chocolate-a combination of white, milk and dark chocolate.
Alternatively, if you’re a non-chocoholic, then we highly recommend the strawberry cream cheese waffles, brimming with cream cheese that balances the tanginess of the strawberries perfectly. Pair up these beauties with a cup of cappuccino, and you’re in a for a fitting treat. If you’d rather not like it hot, then a cup of cold Irish coffee should do you a whole lot of good.
Also, make sure to ask for ice-cream on your waffles, because they taste delish. In the slight incident, that you aren’t a coffee person(gasp!) you can also choose to wash it down with some fantastic shakes, we loved the Oreo and the salted caramel thick shake.
All in all, the reason these waffles deserve all the attention it can get is that they’re scrumptious, hearty and well-priced served by a friendly team that wants you to dig into these enticing syrup traps. So, do head there soon and waffle it up.

Hotel Nalapad Residency
“Sugar, spice and everything nice”, while these were the ingredients chosen by the infamous Professor Utonium to create the Powerpuff girls, in the American superhero animated series, it indeed comes to mind when you visit drnk lab as you sample delicious concoctions that are whipped up with your favourite ingredients. That’s right; Chemistry just got a lot more exciting because when there’s food involved excitement peaks levels for grub lovers everywhere.
Rightfully called “drnk lab”, this exuberant yet pretty modest eatery, situated in the Nalapad Residency Building at Light House Hill Road, soothes your taste buds with delectable experiments where you get to pick what ingredients go into your drink. With its nicely lit up ambience, quirky seating area, European vibe and colourful panels, it’s always brimming with fun, food and conversations.
From creamy sundaes, mouth-watering sodas and faloodas, to teas and sizzling ice creams, the delicacies served at the drnk lab are nothing short of phenomenal.
While the cordial staff recommended us several drinks and quick bites, here’s what #aroundmangalore liked:
Berry lovers, dig into this humongous glass, that is incredibly flavorful, soothing and refreshing with generous amounts of raisins and nuts and chilling vanilla ice-cream to top it off.
This tempting mixed fruit lassi with apple, banana, grapes and strawberry is pleasantly sweet and the type of drink that you would want to keep sipping on again and again.
Nutella milkshake with ice-cream and toppings makes up for a divine treat that only Nutella fans would get.
Nut get together:
Besides the apparently bizarre name, this one does have it all together with an intense honey flavour and a copious sprinkling of nuts and whipped cream.
Yes, we do love our drinks, but what’s a place without food, so of course drnk lab has their fair share of quick bites like burgers and kinds of pasta. If you’ve been hitting the gym regularly, then you can have a go at their salads too.
So, since we’ve now run it all by you, it’s time to head out and conduct your own little experiments at the drnk lab. And while you’re at it, we sure would love to hear about them too.
