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?

+ 1 for Common Grounds in Gowire.

Delicious and one serve is enough to serve 3 of 4 people.
Just get in early. Service can be a bit slow at peak times.

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.

no, op didn’t ask about going out – just where are canberra’s best? with pancakes, from my experience, home cooked rocks hardest. why the misguided angst?

It’s not misguided. I get sick of there always being someone commenting with “home” or “cook it yourself” in these types of threads when it’s abundantly clear to everyone that the OP is talking about going out, despite not explicitly saying so.

Which restaurant did the OP go to last week? I am pretty sure Sophia had snags … cooked at home.

Sophia – to sort this one out you may need to use Pancake Parlour as a baseline, and compare them to the next two most popular venues. As a side note, I am pretty sure the use of maple syrup anywhere near bacon is punishable with the death penalty so you should proceed cautiously.

As an amauteur my favourite pancakes were at Pancake Parlour… The next step was Enjoy Cafe in Gold Creek but now I have had the INCREDIBLE strawberry pancakes at Common Grounds in Gowrie and I can never go back. If you haven’t had these you haven’t lived! But beware… They make all other pancakes taste bad.

It is likely that some people almost never eat out, and food is associated with cooking it yourself. If you want pancakes people who mostly cook their own food, likely don’t think where is the best place to go and have someone else cook it for them, but rather what will I put with the pancakes ‘I’ make.
Suggesting cooking it yourself is another alternative suggestion; that’s all, and you shouldn’t get annoyed about this. It’s an alternative to this or that restaurant. People should be able to contribute here, even if they never eat out.
Perhaps this could be seen as a cultural difference, between those who eat out regularly, and those who rarely do and associate food with cooking it yourself and restaurants hardly ever enter their thoughts.

Combine with a soft serve and you have pancakes and ice-cream for <$2.

If Maccas hotcakes weren’t rubbery junk I’d probably take up this offer.

I do agree that pancakes are generally best homemade because I haven’t found anywhere that doesn’t great pancakes for a reasonable price (pancake parlours are sooo expensive and even then you don’t get real maple syrup…)

I am interested in giving Sfoglia’s a try, most everything else they do is pretty decent.

McDonalds should change the name from Hotcakes to Coldcakes. Nearly every time I have these they are either cold or lukewarm. I’m sick of sending them back so don’t bother ordering them anymore.

Hands down Ricardos in Jamo. Banana pancakes with passion fruit curd. Yum!

But they just changed their menu this week, not sure what version is on there now.

Common Grounds Gowrie! Massive serve of 2 pancakes with cream, ice cream & strawberries! Great price value! ?

Kim de Poorter’s crepes at the Farmers Markets.are the bomb.

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

You can find out within a matter of seconds if you use this really cool, brand new search engine called ‘Google’. You should give it a try. It is awesome 🙂

+1 for Pancake Parlour. It has stood the test of time, and you can even buy their batter mix from Woolies if you don’t like their in-store service.

Yes I did use google (use it all the time, often several times a day), before you suggested it. Weird expression, and on the sites I went to, a number of people agreed.
