This is a great local "Rocks" neighborhood eatery. Prices are good, and pancakes are piled high. As there is a pancake for everyone, this is a great place for families and kids. Word has it from locals this is a great late night "after hours" restaurant, too. Get there early or on off hours as there will be a line... More

Their pancakes are never fail! Also beef ribs, crepes, caesar salad and many more. Make sure go the one in the rocks (original) as I don't think their branches taste as good as the rocks one.

The queue for this restaurant was crazy! My friends and I were there around 7plus in the evening. This just shows how popular the restaurant is. Staffs were very efficient and quite nice. Food was great!! Pancakes were awesome!! Regret not getting the steaks, the portion was huge! Overall, it was a great experience!

This famous 24hr pancake place on the rocks is well worth a visit when you're in town. Savoury crepes and sweet pancakes on offer as well as some other Savoury options (all day breakfasts are a great choice and worth a visit for brekky if your itinerary allows). All are nice with fairly swift service - however it is a... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
