This cafe at Thomson Imperial Court really means it when little pancakes are served as their staple dish.Every serving of about 10 pancakes are served with a variety of sides such as scrambled eggs, cheese and sweet condiments like chendol and kaya.
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.
