Been taking life too seriously? Japes is the perfect place to get back in touch with your lighter side!

When Serbian-born Jovana and her boyfriend Alex went on their first date, their local waffle house seemed the perfect setting. Years later, they’ve come to London and turned their joint passion into Soho’s newest crepe and waffle house! Having both studied the (very serious!) subject of economics, Jovana and Alex are now focused on bringing London the fun, delicious comfort of home made waffles and crepes.

Serving savoury as well as classically sweet dishes, their wide variety of flavours are guaranteed to keep the whole family happy. With dishes such as ‘The Beeftaker’, ‘English Castle’ and ‘Monkey Peanuts’, their hilariously illustrated menu is a far cry from the plain, simplistic design we’ve become used to in restaurants, and is sure to entertain any younger members of the family! Traditional fruit and ice cream toppings abound, as well as more adventurous flavours of beef and truffle, sun dried tomato, and smoked salmon.

As well as the setting, Jovana knew from the start that all the food served had to be perfect. All of Japes’ ice creams, creams and sauces are freshly made in-house, and the waffle recipe itself took 52 different versions of the recipe before they were certain they had found the perfect one! With their generously topped waffles and truly enormous crepes, the team at Japes know that being well-fed is essential to enjoying life.
