We love our chefs, and we love pancakes… so what better way to combine two of our favourite things than with a crazy pancake challenge?!

We all know the food at Donovan’s Surf Club is delicious, but have you ever wondered who the faces are behind it? We’re not content to let our chefs get by on just an introduction; we’re putting their skills to the test. 

Starting 10 June, we’re giving each chef a week to come up with their craziest pancake creations. We’ll have them on our brekkie specials board (8am-10:45am) for you to try over five weeks (10 June – 14 July), and you can vote for your favourite.

Stay tuned on our socials to see who’s up first and what they’re coming up with.
