1. Barley & Board

100 W Oak St
Denton, TX 76201
(940) 566-3900
Visit Website
Typically you’d expect an order of pancakes to come with eggs, bacon, and the other accoutrements of breakfast, but Barley & Board’s kind of blue pancake is a beauty all its own. Think of a less intimidating version of a dutch baby, with fresh blueberries, lemon maple syrup and homemade whipped cream. The name is kind of misleading, because you’ll be anything but blue after.

Dallas, TX 75208

The ‘cake’ aspect of Bolsa Mercado’s pancakes is nothing short of understated. And thanks to a hint of lemon, the tall, pillowy stacks resemble poundcake.

3. Bread Winners Café & Bakery

3301 McKinney Ave
Dallas, TX 75204
(214) 754-4940

Skip ordering your bacon on the side, and go straight for the bacon pancakes. You’ll be glad you did.

The pancake section of the menu leaves nothing to be desired, with options for classics like chocolate chip and banana nut, silver dollars and pigs in blankets. You’ll also find latkes, cheese blintz, and German-style pancakes topped with lemon butter and powdered sugar.

6. Crossroads Diner

Copy Link
17194 Preston Rd
Dallas, TX 75248
This local institution is about as classic as they come, so expect nothing less from the pancakes. The options stay away from anything dramatic, but standards like blueberry, apple cinnamon, pecan and buttermilk are sure to bring you back.

Copy Link
5811 Blackwell St
Dallas, TX 75231
(214) 987-9090
Visit Website
Pancakes, crepes, and blintzes all make the rounds at this hidden gem. And with most of the menu under $10, you can justify trying more of the other deli and bakery fare.

8. Mercat Bistro

Copy Link
2501 N Harwood St
Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 953-0917
Visit Website
Despite its French influence, keeps it simple with only two crepe dishes on its breakfast menu. Your choices are either the sweet strawberry and chantilly cream, or the savory Hatch chili made with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and mornay sauce.

9. Smoke Plano

Copy Link
2408 Preston Rd #704a
Plano, TX 75093
As a restaurant known for its hearty meat offerings, it’s no wonder that Smoke’s pancakes are equally robust. If fact, they even have the term ‘heavy handed’ in the title. Schedule an easy afternoon after taking in brunch at Smoke's Plano outpost.

Some might call it a pancake, others a crepe. But Venezuelans know it as a cachapa, or a hotcake made with sweet corn. Typically it’s served with cheese, but Zaguan can make it with your choice of ingredients.
