It all started way back in 1959 when our founder Roger Meadmore set out on a driving trip from New York to Miami. He and his comrades kept pulling in to Howard Johnson’s wayside restaurants to eat pancakes.

The idea struck them that these pancakes would be a great idea for Australia. If you’ve ever been to America, you’ll know that Americans are the world’s biggest pancake eaters and will eat them with just about anything, much the same way as Australians eat toast.

On returning to Australia, Mr Meadmore soon found out why this pancake-eating obsession had not hit our shores. There was a difference in the way our wheat germinated, therefore producing different flour. So, for the first 10 years of operation, they imported the original Aunt Jemima mix from America until a local company could supply the strain needed to make those American style pancakes.

The first pancakes only restaurant was opened in Gilbert Place, Adelaide in 1965 called "The Pancake Kitchen". It was a small, cozy and very popular restaurant with a distinct Australian atmosphere.

The operation proved to be a success and soon after, The Pancake Kitchen was opened in Melbourne and the partnership divided up amicably.

The two companies shared ideas and the famous "Lovely!" lady symbol.

On 17th August 1975, Mr Meadmore opened the first pancakes restaurant in Sydney, Pancakes On The Rocks. He sold The Pancake Kitchen in Adelaide to two long-term employees and continued his venture in Sydney. Soon there were Pancakes restaurants all over Sydney, from Bondi Junction on the coast to Neutral Bay in the North and Parramatta in the west.

In 1994 the current owners embarked on a rebirth of Pancakes on The Rocks by adding to the menu pizzas, a new range of salads, crepes, pancakes and the famous ribs. The new look proved successful and the restaurant is busier than ever. In 2006 Pancakes on The Rocks opened its second restaurant at Northmead in Sydney’s West bringing with it the popular dishes served in the original restaurant. 2007 has seen the opening of another site at Darling Harbour in Sydney and Campbelltown in 2008. With the continued success of Pancakes on The Rocks in each location we are planning to expand even further, keep an eye out for one opening near you.
