The Fountainbridge eatery serves up a variety of savoury and sweet stacks of pancakes to delighted customers.

The superfood pancakes composed of gluten and dairy free pancakes garlic, ginger and chilli layered with tomato, dill and haricot bean hummus topped with black bean salsa, mixed herbs and herb oil, are particularly enjoyable.
