Pancake Parlour’s Red Dawn. A breakfast review

By johnboy 23 April 2013 35

red dawn

The Pancake Parlour in the Civic Bus Interchange has been around so long it’s passed from its cool phase, to a daggy phase, and might just be re-emerging into the warm sunlit uplands of cool.

Barcham and I have been ensconced this morning for the mobile office review (to come later) but we kicked things off and made ourselves welcome with a breakfast order.

The Red Dawn is a magnificent combination of cheese, pancake, bacon, butter, and enough fried tomato to take the edge off the stodge.

It’s $16.90 of breakfast glory.

Highly recommended if you’re in Civic of a morning and feeling peckish.

Hail Xenu!

The first and last time I went to the Pancake Parlour, bananas were a high commodity. I ordered the banana pancakes and the waitress was adamant I had to pay an extra $3 for banana as they were expensive to buy, for a dish that stated on the menu that it came with banana. I gave up.

… a root bear….

Root bears are addictive. Can lead to bi-polar disorders.

Careful, or you’ll be grizzling away in the corner.

Thanks, just laughed till I cried. Whoops.

I’m scared…

You two are unbearable!

they’re just panda’ing to each other

Some of these puns are pretty paw.

Hopefully with the onset of winter, this thread will go into hibernation…

or we could just drop it…

By the way, excuse my ignorance, but what is that drink photographed in nearly every RA review these days?

A new type of koko-koala? (Like root bear, but caffeine enhanced.)
Or some energy drink that keeps one almost hip? (Barcham’s flower essences and herbal elixir.)

And are you making lots of dosh through charging for product placement?

How you can eat these things for breakfast and lunch and not put on about five kilos a week is a mystery.

Of course that would be the Red Eye which appears to be Barcham’s morning brew.

Perhaps they ride their bikes to each venue the long way…

As a hot chip addict, I love that, chips 5 days a week, its carbo loading.

or endorsing Mark Webber? who endorsed Canberra Milk.

I’m with Mothy on this one. We used to think it was the height of sophistication to go to the Pancake Parlour in Adelaide when we were teenagers. Loved the stack with maple syrup and creamed butter. But I also don’t wish to contribute to the coffers of the CoS, so

I loved going there in Adelaide as a kid, also something about about that lane-way.
Mixed them up with Sanitarium, so damn, maybe no more blueberry or ITs for me 🙁
Never the encountered the sticky tables, possible a timing thing ?

So do you boycott places like the Southern Cross Club because they are owned by a homophobic, There are certain sects though, like HillSong, which I personally think is just as bad as Scientology, not for their beliefs but for their insular methods of indoctrination.

So I’m guessing you don’t buy coffee from Gloria Jeans then? (Not that I would call what they serve “Coffee” though)

Reading the posts here has been very interesting as I, like others here, recall PP as being a place of wonder and laughing family dinners with maple syrup running off my chin and stacks of pancakes that Superman couldn’t hurdle. Alas the modern day version is a sad rendition of the days of old.

Also, I don’t understand the sticky tables either but definitely have experienced them all to often?
