“Friday Lunch”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nothing better than Pancakes and Maple syrup for breakfast. The seafood crepe for lunch is good also.

“You want HOW MUCH for a pancake?”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I know there are overheads associated with running a restaurant, I don't expect restaurant prices to match those of a road side crepe cart, but I didn't expect to pay $15 for one pancake with banana and strawberries. (I know what pancakes are made of. These are not ingredients you need to scour the earth in search of... ) It makes $19 for two seem like a good deal.

That said, the pancake was delicious and well presented, the decor was delightful, the staff were really lovely and the coffee was fine.

I would seriously encourage the owners to consider offering better value for money. You'd be surprised how popular a pancake restaurant can become with locals as well as tourists if it is more affordable.

“Miss 8 liked the food.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our daughter, a fussy eater, enjoyed her pancake and milkshake from the children's menu. The adults enjoyed our coffees. (We chose not to order from the overpriced menu). Ours was a morning visit in winter time, and we found it to be a bit cold and not as cheerful as it could have been. The waitress was quite friendly and energetic.

“Excellent meal at reasonable price”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a great place in a great setting. The pancake focussed menu is extensive and the meals are all cooked fresh and brought to the table where there is lots of maple syrup in a generous sized jug. You can sit inside or outside, but outside is my favourite as it is very leafy and pretty and you can watch the world go by. Very friendly and helpful staff in keeping with Port Macquarie generally which is a very welcoming town.
