Since 2010, Strictly Pancakes has been serving up... what else? Fluffy, buttery, soft pancakes in all types of flavour profiles, sweet and savoury alike. Strictly Pancakes is sure to leave you satisfied, and wanting more!

Ambience at Strictly Pancakes is akin to an ice cream parlour, casual, laid-back, and hip. With hues of yellow and brown, a large chalkboard framing the counter, modern furniture, and quirky pictures, Strictly Pancakes appeals to the young at heart. It helps that prices are also rather wallet friendly, ranging from SGD $7 - $15.

Service at Strictly Pancakes is friendly and quick. While pancakes are made to order, it only takes about 5 minutes at most, ensuring your order is served fast. The young staff here are chirpy and upbeat, but things still get done professionally. Vey good service.

Food at Strictly Pancakes revolves largely around their signature pancakes, through they do offer sandwiches as well. Toppings range from the classics, to genius inventions by founders Joanne and Eunice. I find the ingredients to be fresh, and of good quality, and that makes a lot of difference when each dish only has 2 or 3 such ingredients. A short stack has 2 pancakes, a medium is served with 3, and a large stack comes with 4 pancakes! Excellent taste as well!

Each order comes with a choice of butter and syrup, like the Garlic Herb Butter And Maple Syrup, which is the most popular combination here.

I find the Latte to be rather weak, coffee isn't a strong point for them. Skip this and get other drinks instead.


The Pancakes With Omelette And Chicken Chipolata features an eggy omelette stuffed with tomatoes and cheese, which makes it quite filling. The chicken chipolata sausage is meaty, with some bite, and is well grilled.

The Pancakes With Scrambled Eggs And Bacon features softly scrambled eggs that are still semi-runny, semi-solid, and just lovely. The bacon is fragrant, with a nice char and lifts the overall taste of the dish.

The sweet classic Pancakes With Apple And Cinnamon And Vanilla Ice Cream has a generous topping of caramalised apples, with some crunch that demonstrates its freshness. The cinnamon syrup is a little thick though, but sweet enough. I also like that the vanilla ice cream is of good quality, it doesn't melt too quickly despite the hot syrup surrounding it.

The savoury Pancakes With Garlic Buttered Prawns And Salad is a signature dish here. While rather unhealthy, the excellent melted garlic butter makes a nice coating for the dish, and the prawns are fresh and meaty. The accompanying salad of cherry tomatoes and rocket leaves are fresh and pair well with the sauce.
