Came here for breakfast Monday morning, service friendly and prompt only waited 10 mins for our pancakes. The food did not disappoint, happy to recommend as relaxed meal. Note as at April 2018 cash only.

Hi Warren, thanks for your review. Unfortunately some of the points you stated are untrue.. the cream is fresh whipped cream, which we can prove if you wish, the marshmallows are melted, as I don't think non melted marshmallows would be very nice next to...More

Located along Elephant Pass, a winding stretch of road en route to St Mary's, this restaurant provided a welcome break from the drive with its lovely pancakes.

Very disappointed to receive a rubbery crepe instead of a fluffy pancake. ☹️ I don’t think this is the original concept of the ‘famous’ cafe.

Hi there, sorry you didn't enjoy your stop at our cafe. Everybody was told that the raspberries are bitter, which is out of our control. It explains to you on the blackboard that we sell crepes not Pancakes, people are asked if they would like...More

Great service and great food. Only awkward thing is it is a cash only business. They do have a work around though

Hi, thank you for your review, unfortunately we are cash only but we are trying to fix that if we could get rid of Mt. elephant, but we appreciate everyone being considerate with our circumstances. Cheers.
