Barley & Board

Copy Link
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.

Bolsa Mercado

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.

Bread Winners Café & Bakery

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

Cafe de France

This North Dallas restaurant is an essential pick for savory crepes. Best part is that breakfast is available all day, so the sausage and cheese is never far out of reach.

Cindi's N.Y. Delicatessen, Restaurant & Bakery

Copy Link
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.

Crossroads Diner

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.

Henk's European Deli & Black Forest Bakery

Copy Link
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.

Mercat Bistro

Copy Link
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.

Smoke Plano

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.

The Original Pancake House

No pancake list would be complete without this local favorite. With multiple locations around the metroplex, and a variety of options from Dutch babies to Swedish pancakes, it’s no wonder it’s a mainstay for breakfast lovers.

Whisk Crepes Cafe

Copy Link
Although it’s still kind of the new guy on the block, this Sylvan Thirty shop has quickly become a go-to destination for sweet and savory crepes. Many of the crepes also offer your choice of buckwheat or white wheat flour batter.
Whisk Crepes Cafe
This Chicago-based, egg-themed restaurant boasts a solid selection of crepes and pancakes. If you’re looking to switch up your normal flapjack routine, opt for the potato pancakes.

Zaguán Latin Bakery & Cafe

Copy Link
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.
