The Big Umbrella

With a smile and a spatula, The Pancake Parlour supported Melbourne’s The Big Umbrella foundation as part of our Shrove Tuesday, International Pancake Day 2015 activities.

Thank-you to all those who helped us raise $15,000. These much needed funds will help The Big Umbrella's A Real Meal program provide food to Melbourne's homeless.

Every Thursday during February, The Pancake Parlour’s team members also volunteered with the A Real Meal program at Flinders Street Station feeding pancakes, soup and bakery goods to more than 300 people each week.

The Big Flip

The Big Flip - Toss a pancake, break a record!

On Saturday March 1, we set a record for the Most Pancakes Tossed simultaneously for 30 seconds when 389 melbournians gathered at Flagstaff Gardens for The Big Flip. With only 11 people dropping their pancake, the Australian record was confirmed at 378 people.
We also set an Austraian record for the Most T-Shirts Worn at one time.
Officials from The Australian Book of Records were present to confirm both records.
Thank-you to all those that participated and stay tuned for details for the 2015 event, where we will chase the Guinness World Record for Most Pancakes Tossed that is currently 890 people.

3AW'S Breakfast On Ice

We are very proud to again be part of 3AW’s Annual Breakfast Challenge and this year, before Medibank Icehouse launches their quirky new sport “Wonderballz” on Ice, Ross Stevenson and John Burns from 3AW’s Breakfast show agreed to give it a trial run.

What an epic battle it was, with the breakfast duo joined by sports reporter Jon Anderson, newsreader David Armstrong, Mt Buller’s Dave Clarke and Olympic speed skater Lachy Hay, all competing in a Southern-hemisphere first: bubble soccer on ice. Final Score tied 1-1.

And the best thing about it? It was all for charity! The Pancake Parlour donated $20,000 to the James Macready-Bryan Foundation and Very Special Kids.

Go Green Strategy

In collaboration with Cardia Bioplastics Limited, The Pancake Parlour has implemented a “Go Green Strategy” that will reduce the carbon footprint of its Melbourne restaurants and, at the same time, provide an environmental benefit by using Cardia’s compostable and hybrid bioplastics technology-based products.

The model will allow us to lower our carbon footprint and no longer provide conventional carrier bags to our customers or use conventional waste garbage bags in our restaurants.

Gluten-intolerant patrons can again delight in our pancake fare with the recent launch of our famous “Short Stack” as a gluten-free friendly option.

Our 11 Melbourne restaurants have introduced a rice-and-maize-based buttermilk pancake mix. For the past 12 months, we have been researching and developing what we feel is the best gluten-free pancake mix on the market.
