Nestled in Grenfell Street, Tan Coffee is a little known place where you can enjoy a wide variety of both savoury and sweet waffles. Aside from their waffles, they also offer a few dishes that are based on Asian street foods.

Their Banana Blended Waffles are notable for including mashed banana in the waffle batter, which gives it a flavour similar to Pisang Goreng, a Malaysian snack food of deep-fried battered bananas. The bananas also give the waffles a slightly softer texture compared to the waffles we are used to.

Something more along the line of waffles that most Australians are used to, the Raisin and Cinnamon Waffles were cooked just right. However we thought it could have used a bit more cinnamon to make them more delectable. Both of the waffles we ordered came with some maple syrup that can be drizzled over the waffles to add more sweetness to them.

While there are only a few seats available, the restaurant still had a comfortable casual ambience that you would expect from a small caf้. Off-street parking is available in the U-Parks within walking distance from the restaurant. Tan Coffee is within walking distance of Rundle Mall and easily accessible by public transport.
