Where to drink one of the world’s oldest cocktails + a recipe
100% plant-based vegan ice cream parlour
Ditto ice cream parlour on Kloof serves unusual flavours + has a waffle house
Last updated: Monday, 8 August 2022
A new waffle house is the latest addition to Ditto ice cream parlour, that says it serves Cape Town’s first 100% plant-based ice cream that’s indistinguishable from dairy.

VISIT THE NEW WAFFLE HOUSE
Just like its ice-cream, Ditto's waffles (made with oat m*lk) are also vegan, and you can get them at the new waffle house in 5 banging flavours. Try the Better Than Biscoff (2 scoops Biscoff ice-cream, biscoff crumble, biscoff spread, caramel sauce, and brûléed banana) or Peanut Butter Bomb (1 scoop Pick Me Up Buttercup, 1 scoop Brittle Gone Nuts, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, and peanut butter cup). There’s also a cookies-and-cream, chocolate, and Nutella option, or opt to build your own.

TRY FLAVOURS LIKE BRITTLE GONE NUTS
They use high-quality ice cream and change their flavours. Try the Brittle Gone Nuts flavour, which is a peanut butter ice cream folded into their homemade peanut brittle or Marvellous Mango made from mangos. The crowd favourite Gingery Snap, made from fiery ginger biscuits.
They also say their Granny Smith’s Pie flavour is full of love, cinnamon, apple, and biscuits, and tastes just like grandma’s baked apple pie.

40 DIFFERENT FLAVOURS COMING UP
"We are developing new flavours every week – we are literally doing it as we speak,” says co-founder Trent Pike, whose dream is to create 40 different flavours.
New flavours to look out for are dark chocolate and mint, called The Minty Way, chocolate with the crunch and salt of a pretzel, called Dark Choccy in a Knot, and fresh raspberry with white chocolate bits, called Raspberry White Chocco.
