I have heard about the Mt Elephant Pancake Barn for quite some time, but until this week I had never had the pleasure of being in the area. Our family was travelling from Launceston to Bicheno, and dropped just South of St Mary's and stopped by the Mt Elephant Pancake Barn. The Pancake Barn is a truly charming restaurant, set... More

Terrible. Coffee???????more like dirty dishwater. Pancakes???????premade reheated with frozen reheated fillings. Yuk. Poor presentation did not help to appeal to your appetite yet let alone the blackened stained plates. What a rip off. We will never be back. These people need to get into the 20th century in how to run a restaurant if they wish to stay in business.... More

First time visit after driving past for many years. (should have kept driving) Very very average doughy pancakes (more like an oversize crepe) No cards - cash only - $50 note was frowned upon - in my opinion keep on driving into St Marys for a feed

A lovely bush setting, we choose to dine outside.The young waiter was fabulous , we were a table of eight, we received our food in good time. Others at our table loved their pancakes my thoughts were big price for less than average pancakes when we attempted to pay the bill we were told they have no card facility's. It... More

WOW !!! What whoppers of pancakes they have at this restaurant. Excellent varieties of pancakes to choose from and a good selection of hot and cold Beveridge's. My suggestion is do NOT have breakfast or lunch until you try a Mount Elephant pancake, it is well worth it. Best suggestion is go in starving and leave feeling very satisfied.

More 'Good' than average, but Trip Advisor doesn't have that option. Lovely little cafe and very inviting. We found the staff pleasant. Good variety of savory and sweet pancakes, although the ones we chose were all crepes so not sure which ones are pancakes. We tried the Salmon, Mediterranean and Apple Custard. All were lovely and a good size. We... More

We shared a very nice pancake mid morning, slightly embarrassed by not having much cash, as there is no EFTPOS (although you could leave the money at the newsagent in St Marys from the ATM, I wonder how many would??) Such a great opportunity to do more with, would make a great motorbike stop, as the drive is perfect.

We were on a group of 20 motorbike riders & 3 of the larger bikes were almost dropped because of the state of the driveway - steep with deep gravel, making it very difficult to negotiate & turn around.(we heard that later rides did have bikes fall). The place was pleasant enough, but the staff were not really friendly.The pancakes... More
