Fodor's Expert Review Pancake Manor
Housed inside the historic, heritage-listed St. Luke's Cathedral, this elegant 24-hour pancake parlor is a Brisbane institution. Guests can take a seat in one of the Manor's converted church pew booths and chow down on a tempting menu of snacks, salads, steaks, and sweets beneath the building's grand redbrick arches. For breakfast try the simple eggs Benedict or the hearty Aussie Sunrise, while dinner patrons will find a range of savory crepes and pancake dishes to please the palate. But it's desserts that Pancake Manor is really famous for: grilled bananas drizzled in creamy butterscotch sauce, set upon a fluffy short stack of pancakes with rich vanilla ice cream directly hits the sweet spot. The bar downstairs has an all-day drinks menu of local and imported beers and wines; with its swift, attentive service, this is the place to venture when jet lag kicks in.
