I read mixed reviews about this place before I visited. Some said the pancakes were to-die-for and some that their service is real bad. In the end, I decided to personally check it out with a friend. The place is rather neat and tidy; I love the graffiti work as well as the quotes that are splashed all over the cafe walls.
It took us quite a long while before we finally narrowed down the things we wanted because there were simply too many goodies on the menu! I ordered their Blueberry pancake accompanied with an omelette, a roll of thick bacon and mushrooms. My friend got their 'Nice' crepe which was loaded with a whole chicken thigh, prawns, mushroom and bacon drizzled with cream sauce.
As much as I thought mine would turn out amazing, it disappointingly fell short of my expectations. The pancakes were too thick and a little clumpy, the omelette was also rather runny. All in all, the entire combination of bacon, eggs and blueberry pancakes didn't seem to go well together. My friend's crepe however was superb! The chicken was succulent and the rest of the ingredients complemented the cream sauce so well. The crepe was also very thin, so you don't get too bloated.
The service was mediocre. I would visit this place again for their sweet desserts, hopefully.
Looks very promising
But it was only alright.
For the price I paid ($15 for their crepe special), I fully expected to be blown away by the taste but instead of it, I got just 'away'. For I'm really not coming back.
I used to make crepes at an old workplace so I know it is a painfully easy dish to make. To see this sad attempt on my plate was well, sad. It wasn't bad la, to give it credit where it's due. I like the caramelly bits and the little blueberry bits.
Not particularly worth it but I'm a harsher critic because they're more familiar to me. If you have never tried a crepe, you could get one here! It's pretty good, and you can head over to Barbacoa right opposite it for a proper dinner afterwards.
I maintain that the ambience is lovely, but I wouldn't come back.
After hearing quite a few visits from friends and people through social media, I decided to head down one day to try their offers. I'm a sucker for pancakes and all things flour. Now, a cafe serving up all sorts of pancakes from all over the world, why not?
It is a rather small cafe located at City Square Mall at Farrer Park, but it boasts a wide variety of pancakes, crepes, galettes and such. They have sweet and savory too, with the sweet one coming with a variety of fruits and ice cream and the savory with chicken, cheese, wedges, fish and seafood.
Prices can be quite steep depends on which item you order. Some are more worth it than the other. There is this big treasure box which contains a bowlful of dollar size pancakes which are then covered with fruits like bananas, peaches, strawberries and then topped with grated coconut flakes and a scoop of ice cream and a final douse of maple syrup. Sinful goodness that is.
Overall a pretty good place to settle your cravings for pancakes, but nothing too special about them.
