A honest review of The Creamery: Home made ice-cream and waffles

The Creamery is one of Cape Town’s best spots if you happen to have an incurable sweet tooth like me. You will find a few branches located across the city. Unfortunately, The Creamery isn’t operating in Johannesburg yet. The Creamery sells waffles, brownies, ice cream cones, tubs of ice cream and coffee so you get the picture it’s mostly about ice cream at this place. There is a wide selection of ice cream flavours to choose from. And every month there’s a limited edition flavour. This month to celebrate Easter the flavour is carrot cake flavoured ice cream which I loved eating. For this upcoming Easter Weekend hot cross bun flavoured ice cream will be sold.


There’s a loyalty card for those of you who know that they can’t stop eating delicious ice-cream. I won’t be getting a card anytime soon though. At R90 for a waffle alone the prices at this spot is expensive. It’s certainly not a budget conscious place. But, I will say that the waffle and ice cream I had was the best I had excluding Belgium for waffles and Italy for the best Gelato ever.  It is the kind of place you go to when you want to treat yourself and or your loved ones.


The Creamery is also trendy with a strong Instagram following. Capetonians are taking photos of their colourful scoops of ice-cream and posting them regularly. The ice-cream is fast becoming instagrammable. The hype of The Creamery made me think that I wouldn’t like it. I’m not good with keeping up with trends. I also don’t like crowded spaces; the place was crowded because I visited on a Friday night. But, the unique flavours of the ice cream paired with the waffles made me oblivious to the jam packed restaurant’s surroundings.  Overall I recommend visiting The Creamery at least once if you are in Cape Town.  I don’t usually write reviews of places. But what can I say The Creamery inspired me enough to blog about their business and this isn’t a sponsored post.
