Reasonably Priced Pancakes In Thomson

We were on the lookout for pancake places in Singapore when we chanced upon Little Pancakes, a little shop on the ground level of an apartment along Upper Thomson Road. To be honest, it was the cute pancake pictures that attracted us.

The interior isn't big, with capacity maxing out at about 10+ pax or so but it has this cosy cafeish vibe to it; Dark walls, wooden furniture and cute little signs like the one above. Ordering and payment is done at the counter and your food will be served to you. 


Big Fan Of All Day Breakfast - What a mouthful! The name of the dish, that is. And it came with ten mini pancakes (side of syrup), scrambled eggs, a couple of mini sausages, potato salad and greens. The pancakes were soft with a little fluffiness and mildly sweet. Being snack sized, there was no issue of the flour being undercooked in the middle but I would have liked the accompanying syrup to be a tad thicker (tasted very similar to the hotcake syrup from McD). As for the scrambled eggs, it also tasted similar to what the golden arches serve albeit a little more moist while the sausages were well, your off the rack sausages. If that's insufficient, the creamy potato salad will fill you up real fast! Pretty decent.  
Chick & Cheesy - This was essentially two layers of cheese sandwiched between two mini pancakes and topped off with mini sausage. Pretty decent and something that might appeal to your inner child. The only difference between this and the All Day Breakfast is the cheese, which comes in lieu of the scrambled eggs. Personal preference really but do note that this is slightly cheaper. 

Brunch for 3pax with drinks cost just over $41, which is relatively reasonable given that there is no service charge or GST. Food quality is decent (pancakes are above average) and miles better than Batter Fluffy Flaps in my humble opinion. Worth a stop if you are in the area but I wouldn't make a trip specially to eat here.

Been here too many times! Brought some of my friends here too and the enjoyed the dining experience!
It's always a nice quiet place to chillout and have a simple brunch with your friends though once in awhile it might get crowded with no tables/seats as it's a small place afterall.

Tried several of their pancake dishes before from the normal simple and sweet, Going Nutella, Something Blue, Ham & Cheesy and lastly Savoury All day breakfast(my favourite + extra nutella sauce topping)! Would recommend the last dish just mentioned as that was my favourite. Oh yes the salad + mash potato is good too!

The theme is unique and pretty affordable if you're looking for a quaint lovely pancake place to have brunch with friends, I would personally recommend here. :)

When I entered the cafe, I selected a table myself as there was no one to assist me. I felt a bit odd and out of place with the staff at the counter (who did not say a word since I entered the cafe) and a couple dining in the cafe, staring at me. It looked as I had stepped into the wrong place and made me felt quite uneasy. Went to order at the counter after that. At first wanted to order Singaporeans Unite, but could not as the item was not available as the cafe had ran out of kaya. In the end, decided on Big Fan of All Day Breakfast which cost $10.90 and has the chef recommendation. It proved to be a disappointing choice. 

The serving looked quite huge with its stack of mini pancakes, cocoktail sized sausages, potato salad, greens and scrambled eggs. At first look, I was disappointed to find dry and overcooked scrambled eggs, which is further overdosed with black pepper. Had to chopped up the eggs to make it more eatable. Overall the meal is filling but unexciting.

The management of Little Pancakes responded to this review:

Dear AlamakGirl, we would like to sincerely apologize if your experience at Little Pancakes was not a good one. As our place is a self service one, usually our customers would walk in and find their own seats.. However we would sincerely like to apologize that in this instance, our staff did not inform you when you seemed unsure.

As our Kaya was a homemade recipe, we do not make a lot of it as it does not contain any preservatives, and thus, when it is sold out, we are unable to make any on the day itself.

Once again we would like to apologize if our eggs/food and service was also not satisfactory to your liking.

Went for a lunch date with my boyfriend there on a Friday and we managed to get a seat immediately since it was after lunch hour and we were greeted by the friendly staffs with big smiles on their faces (5*****)! (: We were really excited after reading about the reviews and finally had the time to make a trip for this little treasure and we were indeed not disappointed but kept satisfied! The food served was really tempting and it was the right amount for me, though I find the serving of the maple syrup and the butter a tad too little for my pancakes ): would appreciate if they were more generous with it heheh ^^ Little pancakes is also good as their prices are affordable and there are no service charge and external GST which was really pocket friendly and appreciated, although we had to get the utensils and free flow of plain water ourselves, it was no hassle. The place was very clean too, though abit cramp. To sum it up, I would keep going back for more! (: Am really in love and addicted with their Big Fan of All Day Breakfast

It's somewhat of a hidden find. I walked past to Sheng Shiong supermarket and on my way Little Pancakes caught my eye. Pancakes aren't breakfast food, they're anytime food!

The clientele at this kind of time consists of kids and parents with kids. And one crusty old man. No hipsters to trip up with my cane.

Being an old man, I ordered a double espresso (single $2.50, double $2.90) and was amused that that he felt he had to inform me that there was no milk and that the quantity was little. Maybe as we get as fluent in ordering atas angmoh coffee as we do our kopi di lo siu dais this type of phenomenon will cease to exist.

What value! A thick fragrant layer of crema on top of the smooth, mildly acidic coffee. A tasty double shot espresso, no milk required, for the cheap price of $2.90. (Extra shots at $0.50). It brings back memories of Highlander Coffee Bar when they first started out...

Being a pancake purist, I opted for the Simple and Sweet pancakes ($6.50), esssential 8 mini-pancakes with a light sprinkle of sugar, a small dollop of butter and a tiny container of syrup. Flavour was decent, texture was reasonably enjoyable.

Oh, and the butter was not frozen/chilled. Trying to spread that kind of butter ticks me off. There was just enough syrup for an old man who is trying to avoid diabetes, so that means that it'll be insufficient for people who enjoy a good thick layer of syrup on their pancakes.

The toilet is shared with Budget Maid next door and is bare/clean/wet but functional. I half-expected it to be a squatting toilet but there's a toilet bowl. Young people nowadays can't full-squat like my generation can...

Service was fair with all playing their parts appropriately and I'd like to point out at this point in time: NO SERVICE CHARGE.

Also, NO GST. All prices are net. My total bill: $9.40 (Double espresso $2.90 + Pancakes $6.50).

As long as the coffee stays at (or above, of course) this standard and at (or below, of course) this pricing, I'm coming back.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
