Wafu at East End Market

by Kismet Kohn

Looking for a unique and delicious savory and sweet place in Central Florida? Look no further! Wafu offers the best of both worlds with warm stuffed waffles and chilly soft serve in a fish-shaped cone.

Where is it?

Wafu is located on the second floor of the East End Market, which is just on the edge of Winter Park. Within East End Market, you can also find places that sell local handmade goods, plants, unique gifts, and more! Some weekends, the market will hold events that have live music and more vendors that show up. Across the street from East End Market are also stores that sell vintage clothing, vinyl records, and antiques.


One of the primary selling points of Wafu is the delicious taiyaki, a traditional Japanese food featuring a fish-shaped waffle filled with something sweet or savory. On the sweet filling side, Wafu offers seasonal options as well as nutella, matcha cream, custard cream, and anko, which is a sweet red bean paste made from azuki beans. On the savory filling side, Wafu offers bacon and cheddar, grilled cheese, egg and cheese, and a kimchi melt. Whether you’re in the mood for a dessert or lunch, Wafu has you covered!

The Ice Cream

While you would normally think of the ice cream menu featuring ice cream flavors, the Wafu menu features the cone flavors. You can choose between a matcha, lavender, and midnight vanilla ice cream cone. The ice cream flavors shift from week to week so be sure to check their social media in advance! The ice cream comes with two free toppings, which seems like a decent amount until you read the topping menu. You get to choose between toppings such as mochi, pocky, matcha powder, and hojicha powder! If you’re feeling adventurous you can try the premium toppings - mermaid and unicorn.

Audubon Park Garden District
