Singaporeans love to queue whenever a new brand lands in Singapore. This time, it’s for fluffy souffle pancakes from Japan – Gram Cafe & Pancakes is opening in Singapore!
Customers Queue For Up To 4 Hours For Japanese Pancakes
Gram Cafe & Pancakes is a cafe hailing from Osaka, famous for their fluffy, jiggly souffle pancakes. Souffle Pancakes are thicker and softer than regular pancakes, making them instantly well-loved by many.
In Singapore, it is still a trend that’s on the rise. There aren’t many cafes specialising in these souffle pancakes, so Gram Cafe & Pancake’s Singapore opening is a big deal for us here in Singapore! It’s no wonder that Singaporeans are even willing to queue for up to 4 hours on their opening day just to eat there!
The cafe’s grand opening was 16 June 2019, at 1pm. However, interested customers were already queueing from as early as 11am. By 1pm, there were about 50 people in the queue, which stretched past the other restaurants in the area.
For their signature Premium Pancakes ($17.90), they have limited the servings to 30 servings per time slot (11am, 3pm and 6pm). So, if you’re there for their signature dish, make sure you’re the first 30 customers in each time slot!
Their menu is available for the whole day, and includes other items besides their souffle Premium Pancakes. For a savoury option, they have Chilli Beans Pancakes ($18.90), French Toast with Banana Chocolate ($15.90) and Rich Tiramisu Pancakes ($15.90).
Each customer must order at least a dish or a drink and each table’s duration is capped at 1 hour only! So make sure your entire party is present to make the most out of that 1 hour.
Japan’s Gram Cafe & Pancakes’ Opening Attracts 4 Hour-Long Queue At Vivocity
Singaporeans’ dedication to food and the lengths that they’ll go to is certainly admirable. On the second day, there was already a queue when staff went in to work at 9am. Heads up if you want to get in – queue early. Additionally, their Premium Pancakes are sure to get sold out almost instantly. However, you can still try out the other items on their menu!
