The Best Pancakes in Sydney to Indulge in

These are the best pancakes in Sydney for the next time your cravings kick in.

Gram Cafe & Pancakes

Be it pancakes, hotcakes, flapjacks or crêpes, one thing's for certain; magic happens when milk, flour and eggs come together to create breakfast heaven. 

No matter what style makes your taste buds tingle, these are the best pancakes in Sydney.



Serving up old-school American diner stacks, Valentinas hotcakes are the real deal. Order up to three in a stack with maple syrup, butter and icing. Add shaved chocolate, blueberry or bacon if you feel so inclined. We recommend ordering the Tina classic which gives you the chance to sample a little bit of everything on the menu. Scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries and a pancake? Be still our beating hearts. 

132 Livingstone Road, Marrickville 

Speedos Cafe

Speedos Café

This North Bondi cafe is all about clean eating and gluten-free – but that’s not to say they don’t have a truly decadent pancake on the menu. Making its way on our top picks of pancake hotspots is the caramelised banana pancakes topped with poached berries, pistachio crumble and maple syrup that will leave you feeling satisfied without the guilt. With a relaxed vibe and beach vistas, there's no better place than Speedos to enjoy your Saturday morning pancake feast.

126 Ramsgate Avenue, Bondi Beach

Gram Café & Pancakes

Japanese cult chain store, Gram Café & Pancakes is one of Sydney's best cafés. Sydneysiders love the taste of the much-loved soufflé pancakes that have been lighting up Instagram feeds far and wide. The coveted pancakes, which are as light and soft as clouds, come stacked three pancakes high and drizzled with syrup. Now, that’s our kind of breakfast.

Chatswood Interchange & The Galeries



Alexandria café COOH is all about, delivering a healthy yet unique café experience. Despite being focused on wholesome, organic dishes, their buckwheat pancakes have become a firm favourite on the menu. Expect a delectable fluffy buckwheat and coconut pancake, topped with seasonal fruit, organic coconut yoghurt and toasted coconut chips. 

90-96 Bourke Road, Alexandria

Blackwood Pantry

Blackwood Pantry

When you’re south side or beach side, make a beeline for Blackwood Pantry and make the most of their all-day breakfast menu. Equal parts inventive and mouthwatering, the blueberry and ricotta hotcakes with fresh blueberries, cultured lemon butter and cinnamon-infused maple syrup are delectable. Take the team's recommendation and order them to share after your meal. 

Bondi and Cronulla



The ricotta hotcakes served at bill’s are the stuff of legends. With banana and honeycomb butter accompanying the fluffy cakes of your dreams, you’ll question every supermarket-bought pikelet of your youth and vow to never sink to such lows again. Team your brekkie with a white peach bellini with prosecco and white peach purée or a signature Bills spiced bloody Mary.

Bondi Beach, Darlinghurst and Surry Hills

Porch & Parlour

Porch and Parlour

Renowned as the place to be seen brunching on a Saturday morning in North Bondi, Porch and Parlour dishes are just begging to be ‘grammed. The green pea pancake is a popular option, served with a *porched* egg, whipped feta, house relish, avocado, and mint and snowpea leaf salad. You will be left feeling mighty virtuous without forgoing the best pancake fix..

17-18/110 Ramsgate Avenue, North Bondi



An Eastern Suburbs’ all-day-brekkie haunt, sprawled across the ever-chic Transvaal Avenue, Indigo serves up some of Sydney's best stacks. Their pancakes with caramelised banana, maple syrup and vanilla whipped mascarpone is heaven on a plate and teams swimmingly with an iced tea.

1 Transvaal Avenue, Double Bay

Harry's Bondi

Harrys Bondi

Pretty as a picture, Harry’s blueberry ricotta hotcake is plated with such care that you will honestly feel as though you’re committing an offence by tucking in…not that that would stop us. Topped with summer berries, passionfruit, toasted coconut, and vanilla bean double cream, the ricotta hotcakes sell like…hotcakes…and you can always round out the best weekend pancake fix with a cold-pressed juice.
