The Local Mbassy in Ultimo has become an Instagram hit, specifically its red velvet pancakes. Be prepared to wait for a table as the cafe is quite cosy. A and I decided to be seated at the counter, rather than wait for a table.
Coffee at The Local Mbassy is brewed with Campos coffee on a glistening copper plated La Marzocco machine.
The main attraction consists of three concentric circles of fluffy ruby red pancakes. Sandwiched between each layer are generous servings of whipped cream and strawberries. To finish off blueberries and pistachios are meticulously placed at the base of the dish.
For $15.50, there’s a lot of technique put into this plate.
So, you should definitely get it. It’s so good that A and I both order one each, so did most tables around us.
