It all began with two Adelaide boys who went on a big ol' road trip across the USA in a borrowed VW. Crossing the states between New York & Miami, it seemed every hundred miles or so the boys kept pulling into wayside restaurants & diners to eat pancakes. These two prolific pancake eaters had fallen in love.

Returning home. Inspired by a dream, these two boys found an old burnt out deli in the heart of Adelaide city. Here an Icon was born on the foundation of Fluffy pancakes.



After returning home, The Pancake Kitchen in Gilbert Place was born. A friendly, cosy corner in the in the heart of the city. Where family & friends could rendezvous, relax over a game and most important enjoy delicious fluffy pancakes.

The team found a stunning hertiage listed building that captured the heart of the city in the north.
