A former barber shop, space is tight with only six seats and a bench. However, big window lets in lots of light, vibrant graphics liven up the walls and the tight confines allow you to get up close and personal with the waffle-making process.

All signature waffles are $5.75 or two for $9.75 and are made using a non-alcoholic beer and soy batter so they're actually totally lactose-free.

All waffles get their own tailor-made topping of cream made with condensed coconut milk: here it's infused with praline, and more nuts are scattered on top.

An ube waffle is actually vegan and gluten-free, made with coconut, and purple yam that gives it a light purple colour.

With a slight starchy flavour, coloured coconut shavings on top add an extra hit of sweetness.

A pandan waffle is also vegan, gluten-free and made with coconut, as well as palm leaf. It definitely has a coconut-y flavour, and its neon green colour is borderline alien.

Black sesame waffles are just as visually striking, also made with coconut but with the nutty flavour of sesame.

Specials include a sweet chili chicken skin waffle ($5.75) topped with a sticky chili sauce and peanuts for a more fully savoury option.

There's also peanut butter bacon waffle for the same price that skews savoury with smoky bacon bits, but is sweetened up by jam and peanuts on top.

A hot chocolate waffle ($5.95) is a purely sweet special, made with cocoa powder and a little dark chocolate, and topped with coconut cream.

Peach iced tea for $2 makes for a saccharine but refreshing complement to wash down the waffles, and hot tea and coffee are typically available as well.

The name of this place is inspired by basketball player Larry Johnson, who once appeared as a grandma in a commercial, earning him the nickname Grandmama.
