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.

Cash only venue with hand written tax invoice/receipts on a menu pad and bowls for a till in a draw. I ordered the bana-berry pancakes. The berries were so bitter left me scrunching my face up with every bite and the pancakes were not pancakes...More

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.

They have a big selection of sweet and savoury pancakes. Service is friendly and the decor is nice. They only take cash so bring some along! They do have toilets so not sure why a recent reviewer was told they didn't.

This was our second visit. I had a savory pancake with salami which I totally recommend as the salami gives a good strong flavor. My wife had the ham and asparagus which she enjoyed but said mine had the more intense flavor. The savory pancakes...More

The pancakes are ok but in this day who carries that much cash, especially to an out of the way place. They claim it’s to keep prices down but credit card surcharges are now legal and generally accepted.
