Capital Pancakes

Restaurant and Cafe

Walk down the stairs to Capital Pancakes, Canberra city’s oldest restaurant, with the original giant chessboard still in place. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in this unique environment and discover rare photographs of celebrities and events from long ago.

It is open 7 days a week from 7am through till late at night. Don’t miss out on the signature dish of Blueberry-studded pancake stacks topped with whipped butter and syrup.

Apart from the lunch and dinner menu, it has an extensive breakfast menu – including bacon or sausages with eggs and house-made hash brown potatoes, and the hearty Red Dawn with bacon cooked inside cheese pancakes and served with grilled tomato.

Meet the Original Pancake Cook. After five decades in the business, he mostly now leaves it to the younger generation. But if you look closely, you can still find him tucked away somewhere enjoying his favourite breakfast washed down with more coffees than is good for him.
