I have been to the Pancake Parlour for dessert, afternoon tea and late Saturday nights to get away from all the clubbers but never for dinner and after seeing the ‘Spicks and Speck-tacular’ tour, it seemed like a good time to have something hot and filling away from the rain and cold.
When you walk down the stairs, you’re surrounded by quirky and interesting decor and you would never think that the hustle and bustle of civic was just above you.
Yes, like I said, we came here for dinner, apparently that means a ‘short stack’ for some.
Short stack (two pancakes) with ice-cream and maple flavoured syrup ($9.70) Two pancakes were just enough! They were fluffy and hot but I wish we ordered the organic maple syrup.
I on the other hand, went for a savoury potato pancake which I’ve been wanting to try for a while!
Cheese and potato pancake- our highly acclaimed potato pancake with a crust of golden melting cheese and topped with whipped butter. Served with salad ($19.50) with added bacon bits ($3.00 and so totally worth it!!). This smelt sooo good, I kept lifting up the plate and sniffing it. Mmmmmm, it smelt like a delicious ham and cheese melt and was very filling.
What did I think of it? Lovely!
People do say this is over priced, but I don’t think it’s too bad when everything is pretty filling. I would love to come back and try the the ‘early bird special’ or the ‘sample night’, it sounds like an interesting experience.
