Careful on your way up of logger trucks but once you get there! Beautiful! Amazing food, I had the raspberry ripple which was a bit sneaky for breaky but loved it

Decided to stop for a cofffee and pancake at this recommended eatery. What a huge disappointment. The coffee was totally tasteless and I could make better pancakes myself. The price was a joke. Do not bother to go there.

We stopped in for a family visit just after Christmas. The service was friendly and the staff very accomodating in finding us a table on what was a busy day. The place is quirky with lots of amusing signs and jokes about elephants, not to mention a warning about snakes in the garden. A good selection of sweet and savoury... More

KEEP DRIVING>>>NOTHING TO SEE HERE... After viewing all the signs displaying "Pancakes" on my road trip imagine my surprise when I ordered a maple syrup pancake with ice cream only to be served up a limp, lifeless, flat folded crepe. These guys do not serve pancakes at all. Considering the massive difference in the Australian psyche between a pancake and... More

My partner remembered stopping in here years ago so decided to take me on a breakfast date. The scenic drive up the mountain was worth it alone! Service was efficient and there was barely a wait at all on food, and it was a lovely spot for a coffee and warm breakfast on a cold and drizzly morning. Serving sizes... More

We called in for pancakes and coffee... Variety of pancakes was amazing and tasted great but don't bother with the coffee.....yes it is cash only and perhaps new owners will bring a breath of fresh air and removal of way too many signs!

On the advice of friends, we drove up from Bicheno to the Mount Elephant Pancake place, and we weren't disappointed. They serve a full range of pancakes from savory to sweet,and if pancakes aren't your taste, have a bowl of fresh fruit and ice cream, as my wife did.She raved about the flavor and freshness, not to mention the presentation....

I had the chocolate pancakes for brekky this morning expecting just that, rather I received a crepe with a thin layer of Nutella inside which was just above warm. A bit disappointed but I was starving so it went down ok. My husband had the chicken and cheese pancake (presented as a crepe) which was piping hot and his tasted... More

On a recent trip away we planned our day around stopping here as it was somewhere we both had wanted to go. When we arrived it was a freezing day and it wasn't much better inside. I was expecting these amazing pancakes however what arrived was something you would cook up at home on the weekend. They were nice enough... More

I'd been there years ago with my family. It was fantastic then. This time it was ok but not as good. The pancakes were nice but the coffee was not really drinkable. Very disappointing when I drove a fair distance (from Bicheno) wanting a great coffee. A little disappointing that in this day and age they take cash only.
