“Sooooo Delicious!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Decided on a simple pancake with lemon, strawberry jam with a hint of chocolate. The pancake was made in front of me with a smile and was to die for at £4.50. Lots of other choices, savoury and sweet. Def worth a visit. Based smack bang in the middle of The Brewery Quarter in the centre of Cardiff.

“Really good lunch, makes a change from panini”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Had pancakes for lunch today. Savoury and sweet pancakes were all very good, we had cheese ham and mushroom, and avocado and bacon. There's a good choice across the range, the coffee's good too. Don't understand why there were so few people there, I thought it was good.

“Best pancakes in Cardiff”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

If ever I am strolling around the city centre and in need of something sweet - this place is always top of the list - i have never had a bad pancake here over the two dozen times I have been to this place. The place may seem small but it perfectly accomodates all the customers and every pancake is hand made fresh. The staff are always extremely friendly and always serve with a smile on their face.

Again is a good restaurant to be found on vouchercloud as they sometimes do BOGOF on pancakes so always worth a check before you visit.

“Poor - would never go back!”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We visited The Pancake House today, and we're very disappointed. We both had 'American' pancakes - turns out they use the exact same mixture as normal pancakes in a smaller pan (we actually overheard the lady telling her friend this). They were not American at all, not thick and fluffy as expected!

The shop was ran by two teenage girls who had all their friends in and were discussing how 'wasted' they had got last night - felt very awkward as felt we were interrupting their meeting with friends.

Very poor value for money - £10.00 for two pancake portions?

Overall would not go back
