Following the success of its Chatswood outpost, Japanese cult-favourite Gram Cafe has opened a second flagship Sydney store, serving fluffy soufflé pancakes inside The Galeries. The dessert specialist's new CBD store is an 80-seat banquet-style dining space, doubling the capacity of the original Chatswood spot.

Founded by Takeshi Takata, Gram Cafe opened its first store dedicated to sky-high soufflé pancakes in Osaka back in 2014, before quickly gaining a cult following across Japan (and across the internet). Since then, it has opened more than 60 stores in Asia, Canada and the US.

While the crowds flock to Gram for the soufflé pancakes, if you're looking to deviate from the classics you can opt for mochi pancakes, french toast or a new savoury addition to the menu, The Benedict with bacon, cheese and hollandaise sauce.

The signature and exclusive dish for the new store is The Galeries Premium Pancake which piles nutella, banana and toasted hazelnuts on the soufflé pancakes.

"We are so excited to open our second Australian store in such a major fashion here in the CBD," Gram Cafe Australian Chief Executive Officer Scarlett Zhao said.
