My groups of friends headed to Superstar Waffles in Northbridge after an excellent dinner at Red Opium in East Perth. I was really keen because this waffle place opened up months ago and everyone seems to love it!
Head down the arcade off William Street to find Superstar Waffles. You can help yourself to bottles of chilled water and cutlery. Don’t use the toilet because it’s outside of the waffle shop and quite grungy, plus you have to carry a communal toilet key (gross).
Peanut butter mousse waffle ($10.50)
A couple of my friends shared the peanut butter mousse waffle which comes with icecream, maple syrup, cream, and an Oreo. Sugar overload!! They tucked in happily and appeared to enjoy it.
Banoffee waffle ($10.50)
My mate and I shared the banana and toffee waffle, which also comes with maple syrup and cream. The toffee wasn’t too sweet and there was plenty of maple syrup. We were relieved that we wouldn’t get a toothache and the bananas made me feel healthy (haha).
Choc nut waffle ($10)
The other two sharing a waffle opted for vanilla icecream, instead of chocolate. Probably a good choice because this choc nut waffle is covered with drizzles of melted chocolate. Yum!
The little waffle shop was very busy when we arrived on a late Sunday evening, but we were lucky enough to score a large table indoors. Don’t count on sitting and chatting on weekends because this place seems to keep busy. No surprises because it kicks ass compared to Geláre.
Likes: better waffles than Geláre, free chilled water
Dislikes: communal toilet key
Value for money: decent, especially if you share with a friend
Overall: will return to satisfy my next waffle craving!

Another 9pm dessert stop at Superstar Waffles! We shared two between three people so that we wouldn’t have an enormous sugar overload.
Strawberry fields ($11) plus vanilla icecream ($1.50)
We correctly selected the Strawberry fields waffle with melted chocolate, which costs 50 cents more than the maple syrup option. To complete this delicious mess, we added a scoop of icecream and polished off the plate within minutes. Yum!
Smores waffle ($10.50)
There was a disappointingly small blob of Nutella and only a sprinkling of biscuit crumble on our waffle. The home-made marshmallow fluff on top of each half-waffle was soft and creamy, without being too sweet. Overall this waffle was slightly underwhelming, particularly because real smores (with Graham crackers) taste absolutely sensational.
