Where The Pancakes Are pride themselves on being a not-so-traditional pancake house, with a wonderfully creative menu of sweet and savoury pancakes, coffee, tea, juices and… alcohol? “We stubbornly believe that ciders are a perfect match with pancakes. We are grateful to the French but mostly we credit apple trees for producing the rather genius mother of all fruits.” – can’t argue with that, seeing as they are the experts. It’s a fact that Where The Pancakes Are has a hard-to-match passion and knowledge for the (not so humble) pancake. Get there quick though, there’s often queues out the door!
