We felt like pancakes in the morning before we left Sydney so we with a quick monorail ride away we headed to Pancakes on the Rocks. The original restaurant called The Pancake kitchen was started by Mr. Meadmore who was had a partnership back in Adelaide and after they split and headed different ways, Pancake Parlour and Pancakes on the Rocks was born. I can see the similarities between the two while looking through the menu.
We were lucky enough to beat a massive Mother’s day rush backing up the queue out the door and around the window.
Flate white ($2.95) and English breakfast tea ($2.50)
Short stack- two pancakes, maple syrup and ice-cream ($6.95)
Strawberry Patch- Buttermilk pancakes with fresh strawberries, cream, vanilla ice-cream and strawberry coulis ($12.95)
Thick pancakes but they weren’t really that fluffy.
Mediocre food but a big thumbs up to the staff who were dealing with a hectic booked out restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised to find despite the grand location of being Harbour side all the prices were very reasonable. That might be why they have won best casual/family dining restaurant from 2003-2011.
