I love this place and the fact that they do quick and delicious pancakes! There are sweet and savoury flavours and it’s very cheap too. My only complaint is that because they are so popular you have to wait a while for your pancake

$5 for a pancake that fills your stomach is a good deal. It chewy but a bit too sweet. We ordered 1 beef and cheese and 1 red beans. Not that many ingredients so it was not really cheap after all. The red beans one...More

Tasty, affordable and hits the spot when you want something to eat but not a full meal. Service is quick and the people are friendly.

Taste: I ordered the ham and cheese pancake, and it was delicious. Crispy and soft inside, this is not your standard breakfast-at-moms pancake. Service: Very friendly, but a little slow, I was third in line and waited about 10-15 minutes for my pancake. I can’t...More
