Reasonable choice of sweet and savoury pancakes, quick service, not too far from beach, ability to personalise toppings.

Stayed for a week in Wolacombe and my son enjoyed his afternoon snack there a couple of times during this week. All fresh, very yummy, nice guy, good snack!

A great little pancake place tucked away round the corner past all the seafront shops. Lots of variety and choice of fillings. Great to takeaway and eat on the beach in the evening. Don't forget to bin your litter though.

Visited here for a daytime snack for the beach. Not bad, but pretty much as expected, usual flavors and tasted like... a pancake. If you're in the mood for a pancake, then go here.

Thank Steve P

Within 15 mins of arriving in Woolacombe, a visit to GJs was requested by children. They were not disappointed . Pancakes filled with Choc sauce, sprinkled with maltesers, ice cream and caramel sauce. Who wouldn't love that! Visited 3 times in 5 days.

none of us enjoyed our lunch, the crepes were weird(according to the kids) the lemon and sugar option was not good, the savoury pancakes were ok but would have preferred it if the cheeses and fillings had been added whilst on the stone and not microwaved.

Not on the Main Street but a must visit especially if you are tired of pasties and cream teas. Sweet and savoury pancakes made to order. Always visit when we are in the area. Good to catch up with the owner and see how he is getting on.
