Ice cream & waffle places in Singapore that open till late
We’ve all been there - getting struck with that unhealthy and inconvenient craving for ice cream at the strangest hours, typically late at night. Or maybe some conversations with friends just can’t be stopped and you need another place to go for some good dessert when all the other places are closing.
These cafes open till as late as 2AM, so you can treat yourself to some ice cream and soft buttery waffles to go with - both are good on their own but better together!
