I bought the largest meal available & paid only $23.50. Would recommend if you love pancakes although this meal is not pancake based as is about half of what is available.

The filled pancakes are a must. Fruit with lashings of yoghurt. A great way to fill up 7- 11. Sets you up for the day.

This cafe is always busy but its definitely worth waiting for! Pancakes are always delicious, prices are good and the Eggs Benedict looked good too. Just a tad disappointing the fruit in my gourmet pancake was out of a can

Capers has been iconic but the food appears to have gone backwards. Still ok but something has changed

Capers is predominantly a café, so they're better for brunch eggs, pancakes or coffee. However, they do a great smoked salmon and zucchini/pepper fritters dish with hollandaise - really delicious. If you want great seafood... More
