Piles of steaming hot cakes covered in syrup and topped with bacon. Thin crepes spread with Nutella and filled with banana. Simple lemon and sugar pancakes cooked by mum. There is no denying that pancakes make a pretty great breakfast, whether they're sweet or savoury, thick or thin. So let us know where you think Adelaide's best pancakes can be found.
Obviously we have to start at a well known place, called the Original Pancake Kitchen. These guys are serious about their pancakes, so serious that they serve them 24 hours a day. You can get stacks of pancakes, savoury pancakes, and some truly delicious creations. Think things like caramelised banana pieces served on two buttermilk pancakes, or spiced apple, sultanas, lemon, and cinnamon served hot on two pancakes. They'll fix your pancake craving whenever it hits.
A newer place in town is the Crepe's Story, serving Japanese style, French style crepes. Crepes are usually a very thin type of pancake, and you'll see them cooked before your eyes, before they're filled and folded. At Crepe's Story the most popular fillings are fruits with cream, but you can also get some interesting savoury options like 'seafood mix' or 'teriyaki chicken'. We think the 'brownie deluxe' sounds pretty good.
Some other places have delicious pancakes hiding on their regular breakfast menu. At Rigoni's Bistro their white chocolate and strawberry pancakes are hard to pass up, they come served with double cream, lavender sugar, and quandong syrup. Or try the pancakes at Cockles Cafe, they're topped with raspberry compote and toasted coconut, and of course some whipped cream. We're sure there are some other great breakfast spots that do a delicious pancake stack.
