This place never fails to deliver. My kids enjoyed pancakes from here since 2008. Quality, value and tasty.

Less than mediocre pancakes and unfriendly/borderline rude staff. Chopping boards and dishbrush absolutely filthy. Really disappointed as I love a good pancake!

I think I was thinking of the American style "Dutch baby" pancakes when I saw the name of this place. The pancakes were fine and there was a nice little selection of choices for toppings but nothing overly exciting.

Noticed they did gluten free pancakes at the end of my last holiday. No longer advertised but the really lovely owner whipped me some up specially. Almost as good as Amsterdam - could definitely be more generous with the fillings. Bought 11 for our group and the lemon and sugar (in which the pancake was thoroughly doused) was the most... More

Worth a visit. Pancakes cooked to order and served in takeout trays. They do have a bench outside and a small sitting area inside. What I especially likes was they cut the pancake up before serving so easy to stand and eat

We came accross this place in Woolacombe by chance driving arround looking at the local shops and decided to pop in for a pancakes. We had 4 in total 1 each and really enjoyed them. Freshly made and tasty ingredients. I would recommend this place to and pancake lovers. The prices are reasonable too.

Asked for a Nutella and strawberry pancake and I thought the guy was joking when he finished and gave it to me was hardly any Strawberrys and very stingey with the Nutella when I asked for a bit more he was rude and said no and joked it was his last jar. Not worth the price we paid

Popped in to buy several pancakes which would have amounted to over sixteen or seventeen pound's worth, but then, while in the queue and before I ordered, realised I'd not got enough cash so asked if they accepted cards. The young boy, aged about fourteen, was very polite and told me that no, sorry they didn't take cards. I thanked... More

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