All-day pancake café

Check out my blog at for pictures and more reviews!

I love pancakes. Naturally, I was very excited when I learnt of Strictly Pancakes (SP), Singapore’s first dedicated pancake café! Located at 44A Prinsep Street, SP is open from morning till night so customers can have their pancake fix anytime during the day.

In addition to the traditional butter-and-maple-syrup combination, SP also offers six sweet and six savory options, ranging from Chicken A La King (chicken chunks, sweet onion slices, cream sauce and asparagus) to Strawberries & Co (mixed berries, vanilla ice cream, strawberry coulis and cream). I had set my eyes on the Black Forest Pancakes ($12+) (Chocolate pancakes topped with brandied cherries, a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate shavings, homemade chocolate sauce and cream) while browsing through their online menu, which was coincidentally recommended by the staff.

These were supposed to come with three chocolate pancakes but I accidentally served plain ones instead. While I didn’t get receive any reimbursement for the error (chocolate pancakes cost $1 more than plain ones on the a la carte menu), I was not charged for the rum and raisin butter (U.P. $0.50) which I had requested to try.

The pancakes were decently soft, and were in fact very much like a slightly thicker version of Mac’s hotcakes. While I enjoyed the combination of cold vanilla ice cream with warm pancakes, I might think twice about ordering the dessert pancakes here again as I found the Black Forest pancakes too sweet for my liking. Those with a sweet tooth will probably enjoy this though.

The Iced Blended Mocha ($5+) was decent- light, frothy and not too sweet. However, it was a tad icy.

Cedele’s superbly soft pancakes still remain as my favorite pancakes attempted thus far. However, having heard positive reviews about SP’s savory choices and milkshakes, I will not rule out the possibility of a re-visit if I happen to be around the area. Oh, and students (like me) get 10% off the bill!

Fluffy pancakes and a good sized breakfast

Best Pancakes in Town?

Just when you thought pancakes were only for breakfast. Strictly Pancakes fulfills the dream of pancake addicts by offering pancakes for every single meal of the day. Tucked between the rows of pubs that are right up from Rendezvous Hotel. It's pancakes range from the usual butter and syrup to the unusual garlic butter prawn pancakes.

The pancakes were light and fluffy. The prawns were fresh and drenched in creamy garlic butter sauce. The sauce was to die for, and for a moment i entertained the absurdity of licking the plate clean. The juicy beef skewers were grilled to perfection. And, i wondered why was there such a long queue in the first place.

Sweet Pancakes, Savoury Pancakes, All Great Tasting Pancakes!

Full Strictly Pancakes review here:

Since 2010, Strictly Pancakes has been serving up... what else? Fluffy, buttery, soft pancakes in all types of flavour profiles, sweet and savoury alike. Strictly Pancakes is sure to leave you satisfied, and wanting more!

Ambience at Strictly Pancakes is akin to an ice cream parlour, casual, laid-back, and hip. With hues of yellow and brown, a large chalkboard framing the counter, modern furniture, and quirky pictures, Strictly Pancakes appeals to the young at heart. It helps that prices are also rather wallet friendly, ranging from SGD $7 - $15.

Service at Strictly Pancakes is friendly and quick. While pancakes are made to order, it only takes about 5 minutes at most, ensuring your order is served fast. The young staff here are chirpy and upbeat, but things still get done professionally. Vey good service.

Food at Strictly Pancakes revolves largely around their signature pancakes, through they do offer sandwiches as well. Toppings range from the classics, to genius inventions by founders Joanne and Eunice. I find the ingredients to be fresh, and of good quality, and that makes a lot of difference when each dish only has 2 or 3 such ingredients. A short stack has 2 pancakes, a medium is served with 3, and a large stack comes with 4 pancakes! Excellent taste as well!

Each order comes with a choice of butter and syrup, like the Garlic Herb Butter And Maple Syrup, which is the most popular combination here.

The sweet classic Pancakes With Apple And Cinnamon And Vanilla Ice Cream has a generous topping of caramalised apples, with some crunch that demonstrates its freshness. The cinnamon syrup is a little thick though, but sweet enough. I also like that the vanilla ice cream is of good quality, it doesn't melt too quickly despite the hot syrup surrounding it.

The savoury Pancakes With Garlic Buttered Prawns And Salad is a signature dish here. While rather unhealthy, the excellent melted garlic butter makes a nice coating for the dish, and the prawns are fresh and meaty. The accompanying salad of cherry tomatoes and rocket leaves are fresh and pair well with the sauce.
