Let’s start off with a place dedicated completely to pancakes in Perth. You will find this Japanese dessert café in Washington Lane, Perth City. Bringing Japanese soufflé pancakes to WA with glorious flavours including crème brûlée, jarrah honey, matcha or black sugar boba. You’ll be pressed to pick the delicate clouds of your choice. Soufflé pancakes are not for the faint-hearted—thick, fluffy and sweet—this experience is more for dessert (or dinner) than breakfast… Although that wouldn’t stop us. Pair with one of their Japanese specialty drinks, and lay down for your sugar coma afterwards.
A hidden gem on Albany Highway in Vic Park, Decanter is a cocktail bar by night and a breakfast bar by day. Opt for bar seating inside or in the comfy armchairs out front. Choose from two masterfully crafted soufflé pancake options. Banoffee pancakes boast fresh bananas, pavlova and topped with salted caramel and popcorn. Or, for something a little more refreshing, the passion mango pancakes ft. mango passionfruit curd, pavlova pineapple compote will take your tastebuds to another dimension—it’s that good.
When you’ve got picky dining companions, Café Elixir in Wanneroo may be your best bet for a satisfying brekkie for everyone (available until 4PM). Pancake fans in the house, you have four options to choose from! Classic maple syrup and icing sugar, lemon and passion fruit meringue, s’mores, or gluten-free classic. Did you hear that? Gluten-free pancakes in Perth. Good luck finishing one plate to yourself. Walk-ins only but bring your kiddos and doggos, there’s a menu for each!
Cinnamon scroll pancakes, need we say more? This Asian Australian Applecross eatery will blow you away with cheesecake glaze and the option to add crispy caramelised bacon if you are feeling extra naughty. If you don’t have an overly sweet, sweet-tooth, these pancakes in Perth are ideal for their humble cinnamon flavour.

This quaint Kensington spot takes a delicate approach with its fluffy buttermilk pancakes with spiced citrus poached pear, orange and rhubarb crumble, mascarpone and salted caramel. Heaven on a plate. This place is a local hotspot and draws people in from the North and South of the river alike. There is the option to enjoy the sunshine (weather permitting) or chill inside. It’s busy on the weekend, so be sure to secure a booking.
Citrus and pancakes seem to be the trend. Duck Duck Bruce tosses their hat into the ring with their Orange is the New Stack. Right in the centre of Fremantle, Duck Duck Bruce has a simple yet respectful menu featuring vanilla pancake stack, burnt orange curd, toasted almonds, poppyseed cheesecake whip and gingerbread crumb. Thick and fluffy, it’s cheerfulness in a bite.
