Stokers opened in 1977 in Ivanhoe serving pancakes and coffee after dark. The old building was homely and full of character making it popular with students and couples looking for a late night dessert destination. The centerpiece of the room was the red open fireplace making it an ideal place to enjoy pancakes and a hot drink.

Due to land development, the original location is sadly no longer there.

South Melbourne location opened in 2014 with an updated concept while keeping to what we're about, the Pancakes. We're passionate about our pancakes and want to let you experience pancakes in ways you never have. With an expanding variety on our menu and a cozy space (yes, we still have a fireplace), we hope to create lasting memories with a new generation of people.

A lot more authentic than the chain pancake places, Stokers was something I found on line when searching for a quiet place to enjoy really good pancakes and I was not disappointed. Very friendly service and absolutely delicious food! Such a good selection of the classics and a few new pancake combos too. Will definitely be back.

The crepe was nice but the mayo for pancake chips split and the chips went soggy pretty fast . Coffee was average . The waiter was polite .

Chose this place on a whim and we weren't disappointed. My parents consider themselves pancake experts and they really enjoyed it too. Nice little hipster place, apparently there's outdoor seating but we didn't see it because it was winter.
Signs say they're open late too.

Went here for a Father’s Day breakfast. We were really impressed! They were willing to make anything to suit the kids. Pancakes were divine! Coffee excellent.

The chef was on his own, due to an unexpected illness of an employee. He told us that before ordering and that it would take a bit longer than normal, which was very convenient. The pancakes were great and will definitely come back! I’ll recommend it to anyone whose craving for ‘em cakes

Great food and service - though the food did take a while to come out due to lack of personnel

It was my first time at Stokers and I took my partner for his birthday. As soon as we walked in we felt welcomed, the staff were very friendly. I had the white chocolate and raspberry crepe and my partner had the Nutella Canon Milkshake. He absolutely loved it and would definitely visit again if we are in the area. Thank you.

I had breakfast with a friend at Stokers on Easter Sunday. The restaurant was pretty quiet although that might be due to the holiday. The staff was friendly and didn't pressure us to order right away. The food came quickly and was delicious. I had pancakes and scrambled eggs and have to say that both are some of the best I've had in recent memory. The pancakes were thick and drizzled with maple syrup. The eggs had good texture and the portion sizes for both were better than I expected. I would recommend this spot for brunch and certainly plan to return again in the future.
