A little disappointed

My pancake (crepe) was excellent, but it was not good value. It is a long drive for an expensive pancake. I enjoyed sitting by the fire on a cold day, but the staff were not friendly. I do not think it was worth the effort to get there.

Had been looking forward to visiting this cafe for a while now and I was quite disappointed. The pancakes were ok (just). I had banberry which was a few slices of banana and a few blueberries inside the pancake!!! Nothing special at all!!! The coffee was ordinary - more like warm milk!! Have been there twice, the first and last... More

My girlfriend and I were traveling from St Helens to Hobart and we saw a sign saying "Mount Elephant Lookout" (it didn't exist) we also saw a sign saying "world famous pancakes" (not sure how it got that title at all :/) the road was windy and rough. The staff were the rudest I've ever dealt with, I was asking... More

Had heard great this about this place but left feeling a little disappointed. The food was tasty but not good value for the prices charged.

I can't even tell you the number of years my family has been going to this restaurant and it is always consistent! I had the chicken tandoori this trip and it was great. The servings are a decent size to the extent that I couldn't fit a desert pancake in this trip. Well worth the drive if you are in... More

Living on the coast we thought it would be great to promote it... Well no wonder so many locals go else where!!! We heard the waitress ( and I use this term lightly) tell another table quite loudly that the kids would get a "kick up the butt" if they didn't get out of the bushes...after spending $165 on their...

If you want to be subjected to a lot of rules, this is the place to go!! Kids Want to get told " I'll kick your butt" then go for a play outside in the bushes !! The service is terrible and the attitude is the worst I've seen in a long time! Never will we return again!

Yummy pancakes. Very filling. Big serves. Should have got a savoury one and a sweet one to share! Coffee could have been hotter.

I know most opinions are biased and I understand it may just be one of those days but this place had made me feel really uncomfortable. We couldn't get a smile out of the staff and the coffee was horrible. The pancake was ok but it was not cheap. If you are looking for a place with value for money,... More
