Our Philosophy

Lovingly prepared from scratch each morning, our dishes are created with care and good conscience…We favourfree-range over factory farmed. We opt for organic over mass market and low fat & lean over calorie laden. At Panakuk, even our “naughty” is nice!

Feel Good Food

Take our famous fluffy pancakes: our secret recipe contains just 1/5th the amount of oil used in normal batter. Our mince is virtually fat free. Even our famous Baked Vanilla Bean and Lemon Cheesecake worships the waistline, using just a 1/4 cup of sugar in the whole cake, but with real Phildelphia Cream Cheese of course! Indeed, there’s only one instance when ‘full-cream’ is ‘fully acceptable’ at Panakuk, and that’s when it comes to our ice cream!
