The chain specialises in "kiseki" (Japanese for 'miracle') soufflé pancakes, which are named for their ethereal fluffiness. The jiggly pancakes are soft enough that no knife is needed; instead, Flipper's provides its customers with two forks to scoop up the pancakes. 

In a social media announcement dated yesterday (Sept 18), Flipper’s informed its fans that it is closing the Takashimaya cafe “as we prepare for a relocation to the West.”  

A Flipper’s rep tells that the cafe’s last day of operations is Oct 8, and it will be relocating to Westgate mall in Jurong East.  

The new outlet is estimated to be ready in early October. In the meantime, customers can also head to Flipper’s Bugis outlet for their pancake fix. 

Free pancake promotion 

Flipper’s Takashimaya is currently running a promotion till its closing day, where customers get a free piece of maple butter cream pancake with every pancake order. 

The offer is available from Monday to Friday, 11am to 4pm. 

Each table is also limited to a maximum of two free pancakes, and the offer is not valid with the cafe’s other promotions, including membership points redemption. 

Flipper's Singapore opens Nov 6 at #B1-56 Takashimaya SC, Ngee Ann City, 391A Orchard Rd, S238873. Open daily, Mon-Thur 11am-9pm, Fri 11am-9.30pm, Sat 10.30am-9.30pm, Sun 10.30am-9pm.
