A South Australian icon for more than 55 years, the Pancake Kitchen always makes me nostalgic for my childhood. It was so exciting to head to that nook of Gilbert St & be allowed to eat pancakes for dinner! I can still smell the maple syrup & remember looking at the menu wondering who on earth would eat bacon on pancakes (adult me, that’s who). Does anyone else remember the jukebox out in the back room? The original Spotify!
It may have changed a bit since then, but The Original Pancake Kitchen is still a hit with kids & makes the perfect family dining spot. It is also now in FOUR different locations across Adelaide. The original Gilbert St restaurant has had little pancake babies (pikelets?) & is now also found in Port Adelaide, Reynella & Modbury.
Of course, it goes without saying that the pancakes are amazing. There are so many different options to choose from including sweet & savory options in small, regular or tall stacks. If pancakes aren’t your thing, you can grab something from the all-day breakfast menu or even head to the city or Reynella locations where there is a Smokehouse restaurant too! And um, excuse me but There’s milkshakes for the kids and COCKTAILS for us adults. The kids AND adults really will be delighted.
We recently visited the Reynella Pancake Kitchen & Smokehouse & were not disappointed! There is a Kids Corner, funky baking themed decor, plus quick & friendly service!. We’ll be back. For breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. (And maybe a sneaky post dinner cocktail – the Death By Chocolate cocktail was quite literally to die for.)
And just in case you’re still not convinced – Kids Eat Free every Monday. Tuesday & Wednesday at all PK’s locations from 4 pm – 7 pm.
They also do birthday parties.
