Great place + cute unique pancakes!

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. :)

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.

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.

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
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.
