The day after my final exam of my first ever semester of university (woah!), I met up with Lorrabelle and James. It was my last full day in Melbourne before flying off for a month of adventures.
Lorrabelle suggested Pancake Parlour, and I had been craving pancakes for so long ever since moving to Australia. I've yet to pinpoint a reason for this, but it is true.
Look below and just feel your stomach grumble, and your mouth water. Live vicariously through these photos - imagine the soft apples, yet still with that distinct apple-y bite to them. Imagine inhaling the warm cinnamon fumes. Imagine the cold vs. hot powerplay in your mouth.
Oh goodness! This was lovely. I could've done with a heftier serving of spinach, and maybe a little bit more acidity in the hollandaise, but otherwise... It does tick many a checkbox.
And although most people would've been in the hump of hump day, the noon of midweeks - here I was in celebratory bliss with my espressotini. #nojudgement
I wouldn't come here on a regular basis, simply because of the price. It isn't exactly student friendly, with dishes being in the $15-$20 range for pancakes. I mean, in Manila one would expect quite the feast for $20! But it's sweet; the staff are friendly, the food is pretty good, and it's cutely decorated. It's fun in that I-wouldn't-usually-do-this kind of way, since where else would you get such a range of pancakes.
Take your family here, maybe. Or go for a pricey hangover pancake-a-thon. Both ends of the spectrum work. How could you go wrong with pancakes?
