So So

Was there around 11 am, there was no queue. Service was okay but really food wasn't fantastic. I personally find Gold Coast Pancakes on the Rock better. But after I finished my meal, there was a terribly long queue. I would say it's not worth to queue for the pancakes or food.

I went there yesterday with my boyfriend for breakfast, we were impressed by the many choices of pancakes on the menu and we opted for a macadamia one and a chocolate and banana; after 15 minutes finally someone took our order (people that came after us at the near table had already the drinks....), when the drinks arrived the waiter...

I use to work on cruise ships, and I have to say whenever we docked in Sydney to pick up passengers this was the place to be! (When not shopping ofcourse)! I ate here many time but also on my last morning in Australia, so this hold a special place in my heart now! If I ever return to Oz,... More

So I visited Sydney for a day and walked about and found this place called Pancakes on the rocks and went right in to try it out. Atmosphere is very casual and I was helped to a table straight away by the friendly staff. I ordered a cappuccino and a breakfast combo of buttermilk pancakes and scrambled egg and I... More

This spot is popular and fun for families. The kids loved having pancakes for dinner, and honestly they were very good pancakes. The service is pretty bad- we waited a long time for anyone to notice us. But it's inexpensive and lively. Just don't go expecting a gourmet meal!

Our eyes were definitely bigger than our bellies as we were so full after but oh my goodness the pancakes were so tasty. Definitely worth the visit, we even visited pancakes on the rocks in the gold coast too as they were that yummy!

The food is very delicious as most of tourists recommended. The surprise was their service - waiter's attitude. Maybe they were too busy to show their patience for the customers. We won't visit this branch store again.

Pancakes were somewhat doughy & not fluffy but the dessert pancakes were good. Also the cafe latte comes out in glass cups. Finally the service is a bit slow, only saw two servers so maybe a bad time at 9AM on a Fri?
