Or an everyday treat…
Is it safe to say pancakes smothered in chocolate, syrups and other scrumptious bites are one of the greatest pleasures in life? Indeed, pancakes are happiness on a plate and just the thing to help us curb those sugary cravings. Hence why Secret went on a mission to track down the greatest places to get pancakes in Wellington. Here are six fantastic spots.
1. The Lido
We’re certain you’ve heard of this golden oldie spot, but have you ever tried their pancakes, which are to die for? For example, they have delightful and unique orange pancakes, that come topped with roast rhubarb, biscuits and mascarpone, and more. Indeed, it is the perfect summer cheat treat.

2. The Botanist
This lovely Lyall Bay café serves up some delicious plant-based grub which includes stunning buckwheat pancakes, such as banoffee pancakes or poached fruit pancakes, topped with salted caramel, banana dust, apple syrup, and more. We’ll at least attempt to eat them all. These colourful plates are sure to send your tastebuds to heaven. Additionally, this spot just happens to be one of our favourite places to get a hangover breakfast in Wellington.
