13 Reasons Waffles Are Better Than Pancakes

Waffles vs Pancakes


There’s no doubt that breakfast food is far superior to any other type of food in existence. Trying to argue otherwise would be a moot point. Today we want to talk waffles and pancakes and put to rest once and for all the age-old question of which is better. Because the answer is most clearly waffles. Every. Single. Time.

1. A Grid to Cut By

Have you ever seen a pancake with a built in guide that allows you to cut it into perfectly portioned sections? No. Because if you did, it would be a waffle.

2. Toppings

Pancakes are no match for waffles when toppings are thrown into the mix. Where syrup, fruit, and any other delicious toppers falls right off of a pancake, waffles can hold tightly to their toppers courtesy of the above-mentioned grid.

3. Bigger Is Better

Size-wise, it’s no contest—one waffle equates to at least two pancakes. And where pancakes tend to end up burned on the outside and gooey on the inside the bigger they get, waffles always maintain that perfect delicious golden brown exterior, with a light, fluffy interior. Yeah, our mouths are watering too just thinking about it.

4. All Food Wants to Be Served in Waffle Form

Waffle fries. Waffle cones. Need we say more?

5. You Can’t Put Ice Cream on a Pancake

Have you ever seen a pancake topped with ice cream? Heavens no. That would just be wrong. But a waffle topped with ice cream? Well, the thought of that is just getting us all kinds of excited.

6. Anything Can Be Waffle-ized

If you’ve visited Pinterest anytime recently, then you know all about the million different meals that can be cooked on a waffle iron. Brownies, cookies, omelets, grilled cheese sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, stuffed pizzas—do I need to go on?

7. Chicken and Waffles

Enough said.

8. Delicious Fresh or Frozen

Is there a person alive who can say they never enjoyed an Eggo Waffle for breakfast as a child? Frozen pancakes never reheat right, but frozen waffles most certainly do.

9. Waffle Trucks Are All the Rage

At a time when food trucks seem to rule the world, waffle trucks have found their place as the ruler supreme. Why is that? Because regardless of the time of day, everyone loves a good waffle.

10. Perfect On the Go

Need to eat breakfast on the run? Look no further than a waffle. Roll one up, stuff it with toppings, and eat it like a delicious, oversized taquito.

11. The Star of the Continental Breakfast

When was the last time you saw a pancake bar at a continental breakfast? Never. Because waffles are infinitely easier to make and cook to perfection. What would a hotel stay be without them?

12. They’re Leslie Knope Approved

There’s no doubt about it—Leslie Knope loves waffles. Probably more than about anything else in the world. According to Leslie, “Everyone should love waffles. If they don’t they’re crazy.” We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

13. Sweet or Savory

These delicious, fluffy, dewdrops from heaven can be made to accommodate your sweet tooth, or be prepared to savory perfection. You could eat waffles for every meal and never get sick of them. On that note, we’ll excuse ourselves to go make some waffles…
