Pancakes at Carillon, Retail Level 3, Carillon City, Hay Street Mall, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9322 6177.
I’m still standing … Pancakes at Carillon has been in the same place for a long time, according to their website it first opened in 1983.
I was surprised to see it was still there, and being hungry, ventured inside for a stack of pancakes. It was just how I remembered it. Though a slightly refurbished décor and it seemed to be bigger. They still have booths and the colour scheme seems to be the same.
Ordered a regular stack. The three pancakes were light, fluffy and served with maple (flavoured) syrup and butter all for $10.50.
Interestingly, the service is really good. The team seem to genuinely want to feed you their food. They make suggestions and point out things you may have missed on the menu. We felt a little pampered by the attention.
Some people have commented these pancakes are just like McDonalds. My opinion? No they aren’t. One they’re made with Buttermilk and two with love.
So, reading through their menu was interesting, they have burgers and crepes on offer. And, interestingly, assorted salads, like Caesar Salad. A sign of healthier times?
