Best of Canberra – Pancakes

By Sophia Carlini - 25 November 2014 33

good-old-fashioned-pancakes_10421

I am drooling over the thought of a big stack of fluffy pancakes, smothered in salted caramel syrup, sprinkled with walnuts and topped with fresh banana.

Normally when I east breakfast, I am a bacon and egg kind of gal … savory over sweets. But this week I want to indulge. I’m going to treat myself to the biggest and best stack of pancakes!

Where can I find Canberra’s best pancakes?

What’s Your opinion?

home. piece of p#ss to make and you can add anything in any quantities you like. can make them gluten free, with/out buttermilk, with/out extra flavours – anyway you like for a fraction of the bought out price… and if you’ve got little ones, they love to help. and even washing up takes but moments.

Why is there always someone in these threads suggesting to make a meal at home? We all know that making them at home is an option. The call for suggestions was for places to go OUT and eat them.

“are the bomb.”
What does that mean? Good or bad?

I have enjoyed crepes at the Woden Farmer’s Market.

I would recommend against Teh Pancake Parlour. Food is all right, but the service is awful. You can definitely do better.

Is there still a Scientology connection with the Pancake Parlour?

Sophia, if you get a good suggestion I’ll join you. I’m yet to find any really good ones since Ona in Fyshwick changed their menu.

Old school Pancake Parlour – I shed a tear when they took away the self service syrup . But for the cafe style ones X Change on London trust me .

If you’re in the farmers market at Epic on a Sunday you cannot go past the crepe people next to Fruji ice cream. Get yourself some crepe action with some Fruji ice cream enjoy.

Correction, Saturday! going Sunday will disappoint.

I’ve always been pretty happy with the Pancake Palour. Seeing as its in the name, I guess it can’t be all that bad or it wouldn’t continue to exist. Haven’t been there in about a year myself though.

The fancier cafes that do pancakes with ricotta/mascapone as a substitute to the good old maple syrup and ice cream lose my vote (which pretty much rules out everywhere in Braddon, Kingston and New Acton). Don’t get me wrong, they can be good, but when the pancake craving has set in its really hard to deviate from the standard and still be 100% satisfied.

Crepes have been starting to win me over in recent years too. Served with the same condiments as your typical pancake but with a delicious paper thin pancake and some crispy edges. Yum. If you’re in the farmers market at Epic on a Sunday you cannot go past the crepe people next to Fruji ice cream. Get yourself some crepe action with some Fruji ice cream enjoy.

If you wanted to combine pancakes with savoury, Local Press on the Kingston Foreshore does an awesome pea pancake with poached eggs. It’s bloody good!

It looks nothing like your image above, of course, so may not for your brief.
