Ice-cream is a perfectly appropriate choice for breakfast. Well, it is when it's sitting as a big blob on top of a towering stack of pancakes. It's important as a mixer as well, so that its dairy creaminess can cut through the explosive sweetness of the still-warm caramel sauce the pancakes have been drizzled in.

Prepared by the kitchen artisans at Brunswick's cute and quirky Green Refectory, these pancakes will make you the envy of many other diners who witness them being served. Warm and fluffy with fresh pieces of banana, caramel, ice-cream and one little strawberry on top, the pancakes are thick and filling. 

Earning full marks for taste, portion size and presentation, the meal is truly a delight but the best thing about it for sure is the price. At only $7.95, this is a breakfast that will have you well fed, powered up for the rest of the day and still with change in your pocket so that you can indulge in a little shopping.

As much as I have always fancied the idea of whipping up a quick batch of pancakes for myself at home, I've had enough experience to realise that this almost always results in me standing around by the stove, diligently watching so that the little, round delights do not burn. I try and predict the exact moment at which to perform the flip and then, each time I succeed, finally dropping a finished pancake onto the plate, some family member or another wanders by, nabs it and scoffs it down while still piping hot.

No, I prefer it this way. Enjoying the warm, morning sun in the outdoor section of a cute, little cafe, latte in hand and laconic throughout the conversation with my friends because I'm too busy stuffing my face full of fat pancakes.
