Our team’s top picks at the Waffle Shack in Onrus

Beach-side eatery is perfect for kids, adults and dogs alike

Last updated: 13 December 2022

The Waffle Shack at Milk on the Beach had our jaws on the floor from the moment we laid eyes on it. Located in a quiet town just outside of Hermanus, it truly encompasses that feeling of a never-ending summer with its bright colours, bold flavours and nostalgic energy. Here’s our top picks of what to try at the Waffle Shack.

BUILD YOUR OWN WAFFLE

For a small town waffle shack, there are some crazy flavours to choose from. The basic waffle with cream or ice cream is always a winner, but we recommend something more adventurous, like the BBQ chicken with pineapple and mustard or the waffle croissant – a sticky and chewy croissant made in a waffle press. Our top pick is the Cheesecake waffle, with blueberry and lemon undertones, topped with cheesecake filling and sweet vanilla ice-cream. 


There are vegan and gluten-free options, too. Image: Milk on the Beach

SHARE A DOG BOWL COCKTAIL

It’s like a fish bowl cocktail, but served in a dog bowl. This cheeky drink taps into the dog-friendly nature of the waffle shack, which has colourful portraits of bulldogs and pugs on the walls, as well as a witty and cheeky sign at the entrance warning that humans should be kept on a leash at all times. (Rumour has it someone even brought their pet sheep). The cocktail is big enough to share between 3 to 4 people. 


The cocktail tastes like a pineapple Fanta, perfectly refreshing for a summer day. Image: Milk on the Beach

GET A LOAD OF THESE DOGS

The Waffle Shack has four types of loaded hot dogs to choose from, each named after a breed of pooch. There’s the American Pitbull with a smoky barbeque Russian, the German’s Shepherd with frankfurter and sauerkraut, and our favourite, the Mexican Chihuahua, topped with salsa, jalapenos and crushed nachos. For non-meat eaters, the Vegan Boerie is a great alternative.

SIP ON POPCORN GIN AND TONIC

The popcorn G&T is surprisingly refreshing, not too sweet and not too bitter, with hints of popcorn hitting your pallet. It’s even topped with salted caramel popcorn, mimicking the feel of a kid’s milkshake (but for adults). 


The Waffle Shack also has beer and wine on the menu. Image: Milk on the Beach
