Pancakes on the Rocks is open 24 hours, offer value for money and is perfect for those 1am outings for when you need a feed stat. The decor includes plush leather seats, jukeboxes and music clip videos playing on television screens complete the largely American diner atmosphere. Take the train to get here because finding reasonable parking in The Rocks is a daunting affair, we parked nearby and were charged $48 for three hours! You oughta be ashamed City of Sydney.
I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but I’m staying up later these uni holidays so find the caffeine and sugary syrup much needed.
Trust us to order pancakes at a place that is named after them. Squeezing in a taste of the still warm buttermilk pancakes, caramelised bananas and syrupy butterscotch with vanilla ice cream, the flavours are traditional and work great together.
If you live in Sydney CBD or are visiting, and find yourself needing to feed on something that isn’t a kebab or Maccas, unfortunately, past 10pm the range of options drops dramatically. I think this place takes quite a beating from online reviews, Pancakes on the Rocks really isn’t as detrimental as some make it out to be. The quality of food is consistent throughout (avoid the Lime Swiss Shakes though – they’re unpalatable), service is attentive and is reasonably priced. Until Sydney improves on its nightlife and late night dining options, keep Pancakes on the Rocks as a backup.
