Lovely pancakes!

A tad expensive (it is Australia though, so expected) none of us in a group of 5 could eat the whole plate so the portions are not to be complained about!

The foreign serving staff were fabulous! The pancakes were very enjoyable, and there was a large variety of types available. The premises were a bit of a let down, but overall, it was a nice place for breakfast.

Awesome fresh breakfast that we went to twice while we were in Sydney. Their pancakes rivaled some of the best pancake joints I've been to back home where in the US. The place is in a really nice location in Sydney that has a lot of things nearby. My only complaint is it was a tiny bit expensive, but definitely... More

I went to Sydney and walk by this place for 2 days in a roll and see that always lots of people. My friend tells me that if I come to Sydney I shouldn't miss it and guess what, this is something not to missed at all. the pancake taste really awesome.

It was Easter weekend so the long que to wait for a table was expected, though made our late meal even later and we were tired & hungry by the time we were shown our table. We four were with another family of six but it wasn't possible... More

We went for dinner and had a very wonderful time. In my experience all was nice we all ordered different things and so had an opportunity to sample each others meals. In our experience the Chicken & Mushroom was the favorite for the main course while the Coco Berry was best for dessert. The place gets packed to you need... More

This was a hearty and delicious meal and very good value. Mine came with a soft pancake, a hash brown (shredded potato not mushy at all and very tasty) bacon, egg and mushrooms. Plenty of food for nearly two people. The other meals were equally hearty and such good value. Recommend going there for any time of the day.

Expensive pancakes, crepes and other savories. Crowded. Food is mediocre and the service equally so.
