Everybody loves pancakes for breakfast on a Sunday.
Flat white coffee $3.50
Eleven of us had headed to The Pancake Parlour in Canberra's Civic, an utter ghost town on a Sunday morning. We'd been up since dawn for the Balloon Fiesta and by 8am we were ready for some sustenance.
I remember the excitement of going to The Pancake Parlour when I was younger. There used to be one opposite the movies on George Street, and occasionally we'd go to the one in Bankstown during a girls' shopping day out.
Now they've all disappeared from New South Wales although they still figure in Melbourne, Ballarat and a lone franchise in Canberra.
Big Country Breakfast $18.90
Three buttermilk pancakes with butter and syrup,
bacon, free-range eggs, organic beef chipolata sausages and tomato
Service was somewhat absentminded (we didn't receive a number of drinks despite remindings), and the pancakes seem a little overpriced for the portion size. But I did enjoy the Canadian pancakes - I'm really starting to get into this bacon, banana and pancake thing.
Eggs Benedict $12.90 (small)
Buckwheat pancakes topped with gently grilled Virginian ham,
coddled free-range eggs and smothered in warm Hollandaise sauce
Early bird special $11.50 (7am-9am Mon-Sun)
Two pancakes with whipped butter
and free-range scrambled eggs
Canadian pancakes $17.90
Two pancakes with whipped butter, maple-flavoured syrup,
top middle rashers of bacon and banana
