While we all know and love the humble pancake which let’s face it is basically a thin cake covered in butter and syrup there is always a place for it in our hearts, minds and cheat days.

When we feel the craving we head down to the Syndey restaurant established in 1975, Pancakes on The Rocks.

Pancakes on The Rocks is hands down one of Sydney institution of culinary delights and happy memories.

Nestled in The Rocks district it is famous around the world for its legendary fluffy buttermilk pancakes. Pancakes On The Rocks menu covers the typical fair with breakfast, lunch and dinner all making a mention but the stand out dish has to be their pancake desserts.

One of the hallmarks of Pancakes On The Rocks is their 24-hour service in a fully licenced space that can seat up to 185 people comfortably. The food is always great and the service is very attentive. The Command Strength team loves the atmosphere and it’s a bonus that they are open at all hours in case you have a late night pancake craving.

History Of Pancake On The Rocks

Back in 1975 Pancakes On The Rocks opened to the public on Hickson Road, at The Rocks in Sydney.

They say that the idea for Pancakes On The Rocks came from a bunch of Aussies that went on a road trip in America the true home of the pancakes.

Upon their return, they wanted to bring the pancake dining experience to Australia. The opened their first restaurant in Adelaide in 1965 and the gradually expanded into Victoria.

Then one of the original founders moved to Sydney and opened Pancakes On The Rocks. and the rest they say is history.
