Description: Our Pancake Cottage is beautifully located up in the mountains on the Moll's Gap to Sneem road, between the Ballaghbeama Gap and the Gap of Dunloe. When travelling from Killarney town, take the road through the Killarney National park and at Moll's Gap you take the road to Sneem (R568). We have a good selection of sweet and savory pancakes, homemade soup, apple-pie and scones. A little playground and a lovely gift/craft-shop.

“A great treat”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We had a sweet and a savory, both delicious. Shaved apple with cinnamon, sugar plus the optional cream for the sweet treat -- a good complement for the gorgonzola, toasted seeds & tender salad greens from the savory side of the menu. I had a very good coffee & the Mrs. had a very refreshing red berry tea. Could not have asked for a better lunch. Not far from Molls Gap & worth a drive from Kenmare or Killarney. Very clean & well-kept inside & out, looks better in person than on the website. Definitely will return next time we visit the area.

“Best Ever”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

This is my 3rd time here and it has never failed..
Pancakes are massive in a good way.
I ordered the pancake with banana and chocolate chips.. I asked for strawberry and cream also. It came around 10 mins later compared the the first time we came when it arrived 20 mins later, so they are getting better!
I asked for some strawberry icecream which arrived in a little strawberry case. It was lovely.. My pancake was hot and all the food was perfect! It was heaven on a plate!
The woman was very helpful and i would advise going here to anyway!
There is so many options of food!

“So not worth the VERY long wait!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Like other reviewers, we went here on the recommendations of others and actually made a detour on our way back to Dublin to visit. The restaurant was packed and, having stood inside the door foe a while, we finally asked who I assume was the owner how long we would be waiting for a table. He just shrugged and said none of the tables seemed to be in any hurry. We asked if it was ok to wait and he told us rather curtly to wait in the shop. We eventually got a seat after about twenty minutes but assumed service would be quick as a) we ordered literally as we were being seated and b) we were -all 4 of us - having pancakes as opposed to the other items on offer and, as this is a pancake restaurant we assumed they would be on the ball serving their speciality. Unfortunately we were however left waiting over half an hour for our food. In the meantime our tea and coffee were served and were cold well before the food arrived. The pancakes were not nearly impressive enough to be worth the wait and the whole experience which added over an hour to our trip home to Dublin was bitterly disappointing. No doubt the owner will rebut this review as seems to be the case with all other negative reviews on this site but they need to start listening and not assuming the customer is always wrong! This customer certainly will not return again.

“Great service, fab food”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Visited again yesterday after being there the day before and enjoying it so much. What an ingenious idea to take something so simple and make it special. The food was superb, the service quick and the owners friendly and helpful, we were given a potted history of the place by the Dutch gent who owns it...very interesting, a brilliant, quirky place which is definitely worth more than one visit.
