Salmon & avocado pancakes @ my 2nd visit to J.S Pancake Cafe
Basically, pancakes fascinate me as I’m not a big fan of rice. Hence, I’m always looking for alternatives, be it noodles / bread / crepes / pizza / pasta.
And my bro introduced this really sweet pancake cafe – J.S Pancake Cafe, tucked away on the level 3 of a apparels studio (Journal Standard) in Jiyugakao. Heaven we found and I’m sharing this little secret of mine with all you guys!
my safe bet on my 1st visit: sausage & scrambled eggs with pancakes
Looks like hot cakes breakfast? It’s far better than that! The vegetables (onion & capsicum) were baked to perfection, juicy & sweet, I swear I ate most of it even though I wasn’t a big fan of them.
Scrambled egg + sausage + pancakes You can’t go wrong, can you? I loved how the colours made my blues go away.
On my 2nd visit, I took the liberty to ask for honey. It was definitely a good move!
And this time, I ordered organic ice tea which didn’t torture my taste buds like the grapefruit juice that I adventurously tried on my 1st visit did.
Oh by the way, a lunch set (pancakes with a drink) cost about 15 SGD (1000 yen or so), which in my opinion, is value for money as compared to certain places in SG.
just open, like 11-am-ish
You would love the nice, bright, airy & lovely atmosphere coupled with the most courteous service you can get.
the lunch crowd, young mums & ladies’ fave haunt.
female chefs at work. rare sight.

pancakes for takeaway
Nice little heaven for brunch or tea on a leisurely day, regardless of rain or shine. I secretly hope that some cafe like that would land in SG, but definitely I would prefer polite Japanese service staff to ermz, random “international” service staff commonly seen in SG.
Ask for lunch / dinner set menus, they can save you quite a bit.
A definite-must-visit-place when I return to Tokyo next time I miss JS pancakes alr!!
