Don’t be alarmed guys,it’s just a fancy name! They don’t serve pancakes on top of some rock,but their pancakes are to die for. Pancakes on the rocks was first opened in Sydney in the Rocks area by the owner Roger Meadmore. When Roger made a road trip from New York to Miami,they ate a lot of pancakes at Howard Johnson’s restaurants. From there the idea was born to start a pancakes restaurant. It seems that he used to import the flour till it could be made locally. Anyway to cut the long story short,we are lucky to have a restaurant near to where we live. So off we went,the three of us,on a cold April morn to eat pancakes. The three of us would be me,wifey and our Bogan express. I christened my Ford G6,The Bogan express and now you know what I mean by that.No? Well in Sydney,the ford’s and commodore’s are identified as Bogan carriers. No,no,we ain’t Bogan’s,thanks very much! It was a chilly day and I looked forward to some hot pancakes,and the wife who feels cold even in summer,definitely looked forward to it!
The place already had visitors by 730am when we got there. The youngest was a cute bub(ozzy for baby). I saw his mother feeding him some cappuccino froth.He did indulge in some pancakes also later.
I ordered my usual of pancakes with scrambled eggs and sausages, and wifey ordered one with bacon. Best of both worlds! So, just pancakes with scrambled egg is $9.95 and for just $2.75 more, you can add bacon or sausage! It’s a steal!! Since I lived in the US and ate heaps of pancakes there,I can assure you that these are just as fluffy and tasty!!
I must add that we have been here before and the staff is so polite,welcoming and efficient.Too many adjectives? Well,that’s what I felt. It’s not at all easy to please wifey,and even she couldn’t help praising them. You have to wait to be seated and they are prompt to seat you. Orders are taken quickly and the food also comes promptly! The pancakes are to die for,and the prices not too dear. I have eaten a lot of atrocious food at unearthly prices,so this is a pleasant change.
I haven’t been to the other locations,but how far can the apple fall from the tree!
From all my travels, I can say with confidence and a certain amount of chagrin that Sydney has the worst customer service in the world. So,places like these are like manna falling from the heaven,and we lap it up with both hands. Hope,they keep up the good work!
