Review: Wafflemeister, Brighton | Jess & Josh Cook

Last Wednesday Josh and I, along with some other blogging babes including Holly & Sammy, were invited down to the VIP (ooh get us) opening of Wafflemeister. The new waffle joint is situated right in the centre of town and conveniently right by Josh’s workplace.

We were welcomed warmly by the Franchise owner and sat down with some taster shots of the milkshakes they have to offer. We tried cookies and cream, chocolate and strawberry and the general consensus had the cookies and cream as a firm favourite.

One of the first things we noticed when looking at the menu was how many choices there were, and then how cheap it was! Waffles can be a bit overpriced in some places as they become more and more popular but Wafflemeister is seriously affordable.

From the moment we sat down we were brought an endless stream of waffles, crepes and gelato. We started off with a few plates of savoury waffles, which you wouldn’t expect to be tasty, but really impressed us all.

The waffles served at Wafflemeister are unique to them. Instead of using a batter mixture, they use a dough based recipe dating back to the 1950’s and they import their dough from that same family today.

The sweet waffles were my favourites, we tried the chocolate & banana, strawberry and oreo and the banana ones were the winner in my eyes. You couldn’t fault any of them though to be honest.

We tried a few of their crepes, the all day brunch wasn’t very popular as it was too eggy overall but The New Yorker which had pastrami, mustard and gherkins was the winner in everybody’s eyes. Josh wants to go back specifically for this crepe. So tasty!

If we weren’t full enough already, our drinks were constantly being topped up with prosecco and even more food was on the way!

Last, but certainly not least, was the gelato. We were first given a taster of a few flavours including mango sorbet and pistachio and then we were all brought over an ice cream each! I went for mint chocolate and it was the best end to the evening.

The franchise owners were fantastic hosts and the setting was perfect, we were left to enjoy ourselves but were also able to have a good chat with everybody there.

Wafflemeister is definitely worth a visit, we recommend it highly and will definitely be going back for some more savoury crepes and sweet waffles!

*We were invited to try their menu and food was free of charge, however all opinions are our own*


  • Oh my, an evening or prosecco, waffles, crepes and ice cream, I think I’d have died and gone to heaven! Bet you were stuffed, it looked amazing!! Alice xxx

      I was sooo full – it was such a great event! Hopefully they’ll open some more around the UK 🙂

  • Oh my! So happy there is a sweet place that does savoury (Creams seriously need to take note of this) as it caters for those of us who don’t have sweet teeth!

    • Jess & Josh Cook

      Yeah the savoury dishes were so much more popular than the sweet ones!

  • We have a Wafflemister here in London and I don’t recall the menu or waffles looking like that! Oh we’re so jealous, why is your better than ours haha oh the life of having so many options! Love it, sounds like you had an amazing time! Thanks for sharing!

  • Ooh my these look delicious! I’m quite partial to sweet waffles, however might have to pop down there to try some of their savory ones! Definitely deserves a visit and I’m so glad Brighton finally got one of their own!! 🙂

    • Jess & Josh Cook

      I have such a sweet tooth but the savoury were definitely the favourites! They do a cous cous and kale one which sounds so wrong but it really good.
      Thanks for stopping by!
