You can't go wrong with pancakes. They are always a good idea. Staff weren't the greatest but who cares because, pancakes.

Went here to show my partner this place as it's one of those must do things in Sydney. What a disappointment. We got seated downstairs which has no way near as much atmosphere as upstairs. The service was slow, however understandable as it was very busy. We both ordered savoury pancakes and both were as disappointing as the other. No... More

We had this on our list of places to eat at and the food was pretty good. Solid for such a famous and touristy place. Service was a bit touch and go but we were not in a rush and enjoyed our breakfast. The place was down the street from the Park Hyatt, where we were staying so we could... More

Even though everything says they are open 24 hours I walked in to a sign that says they are closed from 4:30am onwards for cleaning. What kind of pancake place closes at 4:30am for cleaning? Sounds like health and safety shut them down if anything.

Ate here for breakfast. I've said 100 times and this makes it 101, breakfast is not hard and to me, you have to do something unique to set yourself apart. They do, with some incredibly decadent pancake options. I don't eat that way so I just got a basic breakfast with 2 plain pancakes. The pancakes are good and thick... More

Shocking Do not get the pizza it is horrible. Base is Pre-Made. Calamari Rings were frozen not fresh. The spinach in the crepes is also frozen. McDonald's is fresher. Trust me this is frozen JUNK food. Staff are inexperienced and muddled up order. Entree was served with mains. Stupid me for coming here.

Breakfast just got better. Party of 5 women all with different orders, no problem. Food arrived quickly, even though the restaurant was busy. Waiter was friendly and efficient. Food came piping hot, good coffee and plenty of choice. Best part of the day.

Hi This is a great price for the location, the meals are large and they aren't just pancakes, you can get Nachos and Steak and wide range of other foods. The desserts are wonderful.

I'm not really a fan of pancakes but here, it's pretty darn good. Large servings of pancakes, all sorts of toppings/garnishings that you can choose from. Even the pancake itself has different flavours. Slightly on the pricey side but totally worth a try.

What a feed! My partner got the Banarama buttermilk pancakes and I got the Devlish Chocolate pancakes and both were to die for. They were the best meal we had on our trip to Sydney, great spot, quiet area with lively, friendly staff who were more than happy to serve us. Absolutely excellent, I'd go back in a heartbeat! 10/10

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
