We visited as this was highly recommended. The pancakes were crepes and not pancakes. We found the texture very chewy and not at all enjoyable to eat. We had the fruit, apple, banana and blueberry which came with the option of cream or ice cream. We chose the cream which was not fresh, but from a pressure pack can...very disappointing... More

The decor looks a bit dated, but the pancakes (more like crepes) were great. Coffee wasn't great, too weak for us, but the people were friendly and the food came quickly. Worth stopping in for a meal

We read about this place in a travelbook and thought we had to try it. We chose a sweet pancake with fruit and icecream. And it was delicious.

During our annual camping trip to Douglas river we decided to re visit the pancake barn and I'm more than happy after our experience! The staff were all so kind and happy, they were more than happy for us to sit on the deck with our dogs and enjoy our meals. The food was excellent, and I was very excited... More

Finally we made it to the pancake restaurant! Like so many wanted to for a long time but never got there. It did not disappoint it only impressed, ok they are crepes not pancakes.

Mount elephant pancakes are amazing! My uncle recommended them, telling me that they were the worlds best pancakes. Even with the high expectations, I was not disappointed. We have both savory and dessert pancakes, both were excellent. Highly recommend.

We made the slight detour to the Mt Elephant Pancake Barn after a recommendation. It was a rustic little cafe that served great crepes. Nothing fancy about it. We probably should have shared one serve as they were very generous. Coffee though was woeful.

We were told about the pancakes at mount elephant. Unfortunately they weren't pancakes - they were crepes which, for me, are nowhere near as nice as pancakes. However the fruit and ice cream etc was very nice and fresh. But pancakes they are not. Staff were very nice

Decided to stop for a cofffee and pancake at this recommended eatery. What a huge disappointment. The coffee was totally tasteless and I could make better pancakes myself. The price was a joke. Do not bother to go there.
