Meet the Original Pancake Cook who learnt pancake cooking at the age of 22 from an ol’ fella from Topeka, Kansas.
After 50 years in the pancake business, cooking up a storm is now mostly left to the younger generation. But early in the morning you can still often find him enjoying the world’s best breakfast – and drinking far more coffee than is good for him.
“A Canberra institution with the lightest, fluffiest pancakes you’ll find! Love the variety on the menu, love the potato and cheese pancake, love the chess table and love the malted milkshakes!”
“A lovely period place in the heart of Canberra. Great pancakes and coffee, homemade butter, aged wood furniture, and great service. It’s easily my favourite eating place in Canberra one I visit whenever I’m around.”
“Bacon was premium, eggs were perfectly cooked and the pancakes were so fluffy. Everything was fantastic. The mega milkshakes are a must try.”
