Here are a few of our favourite cafes that are serving up innovative pancakes in Perth:
The Little Banksia – Kensington
This gem of a cafe tucked down a suburban street in Kensington features seasonal and locally inspired dishes. With sweet and savoury delights baked daily, a creative all-day menu and Leftfield Coffee served, you know that a good brunch is guaranteed. For those sweet cravings, their buttermilk pancakes with seasonal toppings are truly delicious. On our last visit, the pancakes were served with a berry compote, Italian meringue, tangy passionfruit curd, vanilla creme fraiche, fresh berries and a crunch of pistachio praline. We recommend booking, especially on weekends, as they are always busy – evidence of their popularity!
Soho Lane – Mount Lawley
This super stylish modern cafe tucked away in the back streets of Mount Lawley features a classic brunch menu with unexpected ingredients and a sprinkle of American-inspired options. Their Pancakes are always available but change seasonally. We tried the Dinner Style Pancakes – a stack of four light and fluffy pancakes topped with a generous helping of honeycomb butter, a sprinkle of macadamia praline, dollop of fresh rhubarb compote, and flooded with maple syrup. (we love it when they don’t skimp on the syrup!!) The pancakes at Soho Lance are true brunch highlight and always insta-worthy!!
The Little Bay – Waterman’s Bay
Whether you’re an aspiring influencer or simply want a good view with your brunch, the Little Bay’s Hampton-styled coastal cafe lives up to its good looks. Currently serving a Matcha Pancake with compote, burnt white chocolate, kaffir lime anglaise, and ice cream, it’s a great spot for a delicious and relaxed breakfast. When we visited this pretty stack of coconut pancakes was smothered with mango curd, coconut cream, burnt white chocolate, and dried raspberry. Dreamy!! Book ahead, as it’s always busy.
Padbury’s Cafe Restaurant – Guildford
No list of ‘must-try’ pancakes is complete without Padbury’s famous Meringue Munro Pancakes. Take one look at these pancakes and you’ll understand why they’ve become their signature dish. Tart lemon curd, candied lemon, honeycomb, fig granola and flamed meringue adorn the top of the fluffy and super light soufflé pancakes. The café itself is as equally Insta-worthy as its pancake stacks. Located in the 1896 Padbury Colonial Store it’s a richly historical setting to enhance your brunch.
Little h – Duncraig
Nestled in the coastal suburb of Duncraig, the Pavlova Pancakes at Little h is a very impressive dish. Coconut pancakes topped with mascarpone, meringue and summer fruits, including blueberries, kiwi fruit and a generous serve of passionfruit syrup. It is definitely one of our favourites! A bonus is that their cafe is a lovely spot to enjoy brunch with a friend – and don’t miss their Breakfast Gnocchi.
Decanter – Victoria Park
Located on the Albany Highway cafe strip this up-and-coming brunch spot features a creative menu. We swoon over their souffle pancakes with two topping choices. Their Banoffee Pancakes are slathered with banana, salted caramel, pavlova and popcorn. Or there’s the Passion For Mango Pancakes which is loaded with mango passionfruit curd, pavlova and fruit. Good luck choosing between these two!
North Beach Deli – North Beach
When we see Biscoff on a menu, we’re immediately sold. So when we heard that North Beach Deli had a special biscoff pancake on their menu – we were there in a flash. A stack of 3 pancakes smothered with caramel biscoff and vanilla sauce with biscoff crumble, ice cream and berries – boy was it delicious! Currently, North Beach Deli has a Snickers Pancake on their menu – fluffy meringue pancakes, dark chocolate, peanut butter sauce, deep fried banana, vanilla ice cream and nutty crumble. Sounds so good, we’ll have to visit again to try it soon!
Cherry & Grapes – West Perth
For light and fluffy souffle pancakes in Perth, it’s hard to go past the sweet stack at Cherry And Grapes. Flavours change seasonally (we had a simple strawberry and cream stack), but at the moment they have a Mandarin Yuzu’ option topped with Mandarin, Yuzu, Compote, Chantilly Cream, Crumble, Freeze Dried Mandarin Segment, Meringue, Housemade Salted Caramel Gelato.
Nic and Kolo – Applecross
Nic and Kolo in the leafy suburb of Applecross is a gorgeous spot for brunch. With outdoor dining under the huge Jacaranda trees and a contemporary menu, there are loads of savoury and sweet options for everyone. We enjoyed their Cinnamon Scroll Pancakes with plenty of cheesecake glaze, but just wished it had a bit more cinnamon flavour.
