This was a lovely find of my friend. Tucked away down a side street you might not know it's there but the staff are so welcoming and it has a great retro feel to it. Would definitely recommend for breakfast/ lunch!

We had seen this eaterie advertised on social media and had been looking forward to sampling the rather different menu on offer! We had some difficulty finding the place; it wasn't in the midst of Chester high street, but thats no complaint at all. We were greeted as soon as we stepped through the door and shown to a clean...

Me and my other half found out about this place online and we both thought we would give it a try. The pancakes tasted delicious and as long as you like pancakes there was something for everyone. The service was top notch too, they came over and asked us if everything was OK, which of course it was, plus we... More

Great place with a fun and vibrant feel, the staff were very friendly with a great service. I think this is definitely a place to head if you feel a little glum, or on a rainy day. I enjoyed a thick pancake with marshmellows and ice cream, very nice. But I noted the time I ordered and when the order... More

We went in for a late breakfast, have been wanting to try this place for a while. Really nice atmosphere, our waitress was very helpful and efficient while maintaining an overall relaxed feel to the place. The food was good value, delighted to have buckwheat galettes on offer! Large selection for all tastes. Will definitely be back!

Thank you very much for leaving a review following your visit, we really appreciate it. The savoury galettes are every bit as popular as the sweeter options, it is great to see how creative our customers can be with the pancakes and toppings on offer.

Thank you very much for your review. There are quite a few pancake options and toppings to go at. We do try our best to cater for those with an intolerance to a given ingredient, but would not claim to guarantee our pancakes will be free of a particular allergen. Just ask your server when ordering and they will offer... More

Fun pancake restaurant in the Chester city centre. Lots of options and variation you can choose from, from sweet to savoury. A little overpriced for what you get so wouldn't come here too often.
