unexpected to find belgium waffels in this small tourist town, for Chinese local tourist. I have to say the taste of it is really good. After all those chinese dishes I was happy to find this place.

Delicious Belgian Waffles at reasonable prices. With whip or ice cream. Take your pic and stuff your mouth with one of the best dessert areas in town. It is located next to Dicos in Dali.

What a treat! It's refreshing to see a Belgian waffle stand ran by someone from Belgium. The waffles are authentic as they come and thats why its a must stop. The variety of toppings is another plus. Delicious.

This Belgian waffle place with a small terrace next to the water is run by Belgian expat Ruben and offers different types of delicious Belgian waffles. You can choose between Liege-style and Brussels-style Belgian waffles, with a choice of several toppings (hot Belgian chocolate sauce, whipped cream, chocolate/strawberry/mango/blueberry ice cream, etc). There's also a wide variety of Belgian beers available. An indulgence you will not regret!
