Awesome! Worth many visits (:

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

All Day Breakfast

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.

Double espresso ($2.90)

Great value for good coffee and pancakes

Time of Visit: Thursday 4pm
Parking: Coupon parking just outside - $0.50/30min (limited lots) until 5pm

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.

Nutella pancake

Everything seems to be Miniature

I decided to check out this place since the reviews were quite good and it was a pancake café. The nutella I felt could not go wrong. The pancake was small and fluffy but it gave a little bit of butter and the maple syrup was in a miniature glass. on the whole it was tasty. my only gripe was the pot of tea that I ordered. It said refillable (or did I see wrongly) and when I asked for a refill of hot water, the waitress told me that she doesn't do refills any more. But she will do it this time. The pot of tea cost $4.30. I like the tea bag it's gryphon but how much can hot water cost? That really marred my experience there.

Hi Delia, thank you for taking time to write your review. We apologize if your experience at Little Pancakes was not ideal. The teas are actually refillable once and we make it a point to let our customers know that when they order at the counter. Perhaps there was a miscommunication from our staff to you. We apologize for any inconvenienced caused.

The Cute, The Mini and The Chubby

Little Pancakes is a popular establishment along Upper Thomson Road that specialised in mini pancakes. The name of the shop itself already describe what they are making inside. Minions... ooopss I meant mini pancakes.   We visited this place after a friend's birthday dinner in an Indian Restaurant nearby. Filled with curry, naan and basmanti rice, we decided we want something sweet and a cuppa just to settle the tummy. The pancakes menu can be divided into three categories: Sweet, Savoury and Asian. For the ice cream they use the brand 'New Zealand Ice Cream'.   If this is the first time you are here (just like us), the following steps will help: Step 1 – Grab a seat and check out the menu Step 2 – Place your order at the counter + make payment Step 3 – Help yourself with water and cutleries and enjoy your pancake   I ordered Going Nuttella For You ($8.20), which have about 10 mini pancakes, Nutella, chocolate ice cream, chocolate chips, wafer cubes, butter and maple syrup. The plating is creative and gorgeous, all the components look fun and appetizing. The mini pancakes are about bite size, and goes well with nutella, ice-cream and light clear maple syrup.   Little Devil ('LD') ordered Simple and Sweet ($6.50). A classic way to enjoy pancakes, with butter, maple syrup and icing sugar.   Although the pancakes are delicious, we do think that there are some areas that can be improve. The texture of the pancakes need to be more consistent, as some of them are quite dry and make it hard to swallow. They can be more generous with the portion maple syrup. We paid extra for the maple syrup, but it wasn't even filled up to the brim.   For coffee lover like myself, you will like the artisanal coffee here. I was actually attracted by their funky coffee machine before I decided on the latte. The latte is smooth, bold but with slight acidity after taste. A good coffee indeed.   The décor of the place can look simple, however it is all about having fun at this place. Service is minimal, it is all about DIY here starting from placing your order, getting water and cutlery, with the exception for making the pancakes and drinks.   Overall, if you are looking for pancakes, do give Little Pancake a try. They might not be the best, but their fun atmosphere here is just so refreshing. Pricing is very reasonable. Cheers!!
