Sweet (and Savoury) New Spot for Souffle Pancakes in Greenslopes

What started as a humble market stall has blossomed into a Brisbane souffle pancake phenomenon. Souffle Japancakes has taken the city by storm, growing from its original Eat Street Markets home base to now having not one, but two permanent cafe locations.

Their latest outpost has just opened in Greenslopes, serving up the same signature wobbly, jiggly souffle pancake stacks that have developed a cult following across Brisbane.

This small hole-in-the-wall cafe holds a unique distinction – it’s the first Souffle Japancakes venue to offer dedicated gluten-free souffle pancakes. That’s right, coeliacs and gluten-free diners can finally experience the viral fluffy pancake trend without any worries  thanks to their specialised gluten-free pancake grill.

Of course, those without dietary restrictions can still indulge in Souffle Japancakes’ original gluten-filled creations. The menu offers both sweet and savoury varieties, from crème brûlée and matcha toppings to eggs benedict and smoked salmon stacks. No matter your order, expect a pillowy soft, delightfully jiggly pancake tower that’s sure to have you drooling.

For those who prefer savoury flavours, Souffle Japancakes offers tasty crepe options beyond just sweet toppings. Satisfy your cravings with crepes stuffed full of savoury fillings like ham and Swiss cheese, or a combination of smoked salmon, fresh baby spinach, avocado, herbs, and cream cheese. 

Another choice features prosciutto, gorgonzola cream, walnuts, cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of honey. If you’re looking for something completely different, try their savoury souffle topped with a free-range egg and your choice of ham, mushrooms, or smoked salmon.

The cafe’s interior is cosy with just a handful of tables inside and a small outdoor seating area. It has a quirky, almost underground vibe that makes you feel like you have discovered a hidden gem. Sip on coffee or matcha lattes as you dig into your pancake feast or sample their other sweet treats like crepes and mochi gelato.
