Originally skeptical of a place that served pancakes/crepes for dinner (mainly Mandy, I of course had no problem) we decided to check it out anyway. We went to the original location in The Rocks as they have apparently grown to include ~5 locations in/around Sydney. While we had a slightly hard time locating it (access is inside a building rather than directly from the street) we finally found when we saw the long line of people.
Since it was already late and we had been walking for a while we decided to just wait out the line…Good decision.
Now on for the actual review:
Value: 5 / 5
For Australia (and especially Sydney) this place is almost a steal. Yes, an actual entree (I had the Mexican Crepes) is still approximately $15, but we thought the portions were more than fair and left you feeling satisfied. Basic pancake dishes are an even better deal ringing up at a modest $8-$12. I recommend saving room to split an indulgence pancake dish for dessert as you will be hard pressed to find a dessert at a sit down restaurant in Australia for less than $15 – let alone one of this size that will leave you so full.
Reason for a less than perfect score was the fact that Mandy’s dish, the Greek Delight (spinach crepes), left a lot to be desired for. The primary ingredient, Spinach, was overused and overpowering (we dubbed it the Greek Not-so-Delightful). The other two dishes we had were both great (previously mentioned Mexican Crepes and the Devils Delight) and I feel like any of the classic pancake dishes would have been enjoyable as well.
Overall: Like It
We would recommend this place to a friend visiting Sydney as long as they understand what they’d be getting. We also think this would be an exceptional place to visit late-night as they operate 24×7.
