Thank you all!
ColoradoKat - These rocks extend right down to the water - Around high tide the water bangs and crashes up against the rocks, however at low tide the water eases..I'm not sure if the water recedes far enough for the sand to be exposed.
ManitouWalker - I'm not sure if the place specialises in pancakes! I would love to try them if they do! The building is still there though...

Is there still a little road house across the highway specializing in pancakes?

Do these formations go right up to the water,
or is there a flatter area, like a beach,
between them and the water? It is really
unique!
Update: Congratulations on your AC!

Yes it is heavily eroded limestone. The "pancake" effect is "created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments" to quote wikipedia :). The lighter brown in the centre of the picture is actually one of the blowholes created amongst the rocks hence the discolouration.
