    I really like the smell of the waffles when I passed by Gelare outlets. It is as good as the smell from Famous Amos Cookie Stores. So one Tuesday, out of pure curiosity, I decided to try the waffles.. I was pleasently surprised to learn that on Tuesdays, Gelare has half price offers. So, unsurprisingly, it was quite packed. I really do not regret this decision. The waffle was warm and crispy... and it smelt super good! I ordered it with Chocolate sauce, being a chocoholic.. but I didnt realised that it would cost a bit more. Disappointed. Also, it does not provide any water, unlike it's competitors like Venezia. This is not a good idea. I was quite shocked to see that. Overall, the service was more or less okay, but the EXPERIENCE there was not too good....

      I havent tried the waffles but my very 1st visit to Gelare was at this outlet with another friend.

      We ordered the chicken chop & sausage pesto for main course & banana split for dessert.

      My pesto came 1st, 1st look, it was mold green which shocked me as I expected the pesto to come as a dip & not all over the spaghetti, would anyone eat a plate of pesto?

      Anyway, the pesto was average with only a few chunks of sausage that tasted like it can be bought from NTUC.

      My friend's chicken chop looks promising but the taste proved otherwise. It was tough to chew & wasnt succulent & I dun remember any sauce to go with it.... It was a disaster...

      We quickly gobbled the food , not wanting to saviour it & awaited our dessert. Fortunately, the banana split was the main reason we went to Gelare.

      Dessert arrived & it looks nice with the usual toppings & all. We took a mouthful of the ice cream, it was not bad. It has a smooth feel & the flavour was rich enough for me BUT it melts faster than i expected.

      Thus I'd only recommend ice cream at Gelare, their main courses are out of the qestion. I'll try out their waffles next round after settling my main dinner elsewhere....

        The infamous Gelare Tuesdays, the only time of the week when you get waffles at half price. Sounds good doesn't it? Except you can expect to wait for eons for your waffles to be served.

        We waited for a good 40 minutes before our simple waffle with two scoops of ice-cream got served.

        If they couldn't keep up with the service standard, or to train their staffs to politely inform us of a possible long wait, they might as well not try stunts like this. It only serves to stain their brand name.

        And I totally agree with Polarbear above, no free water is a bad move. It's the little perks that keep customers coming back, and the little irks that keep them away.
