Great place, offering brilliant breakfasts (though open all day). Pancakes are their specialty, but beware these are fluffy fat pancakes, not French style crepes. They come in lots of flavours and have fruit salad in the middle. They also do cooked breakfasts which are more my thing and are great. My only warning is - they are ALWAYS busy (even at 8am on a weekday) so book a table if you don't want to hang around waiting. Plus the tables are very close together which is something to consider if you have a pushchair for kids or a wheelchair.

You definitely go to Capers for the pancakes - they are massive and filling and pretty good value. I'm a pretty big eater and the half is enough for me. Coffee is always a bit average there though.

As we walked up the footpath to Capers we passed customers at another cafe who had ordered pancakes, three 150mm diameter cakes in the middle of the plate.

At Capers, the plates though the same size were too small for the pancakes we received!

We recommend the Gourmet ones, but you need to be hungry!
