Flipping Fabulous Places to Spend Pancake Day in London
Celebrate Pancake Day with the best stack in the city
Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Day, is just around the corner and if you’re in London then these restaurants are definitely worth taking a seat for…
The Bloomsbury hotel’s stylish hotspot Dalloway Terrace isn’t one to be overlooked on Shrove Tuesday. With its quaint and cosy setting within the hotel, a seasonal installation featuring some of the most Instagram-able décor, and a scrumptious menu, we promise you won’t want to leave.
The restaurant’s breakfast menu features Berry Buttermilk Pancakes with lemon curd, which are vegan friendly, with the option to add some sweet cured bacon for a wonderful dining experience.
Just a short walk from Tottenham Court Road station, this is the perfect central location to relieve any pancake craving.
The Breakfast Club
The Breakfast Club's pancakes are not for the faint-hearted, but they are mouth-wateringly good and guarantee to fill you up.
The American-style diner prides itself on a brunch menu made up largely of pancake options. You can choose from dishes like the All American (pancakes, eggs, sausage, potatoes, bacon and maple syrup), Pancakes & Berries (fresh berries, berry compote, maple syrup and vanilla ice cream) and Banana & Salted Caramel Pancakes with vanilla cream and chocolate sauce. There are also amazing vegan pancakes. With locations all over London, there’s definitely no excuse to give breakfast a miss.
Make sure you arrive early to avoid waiting too long for a table, as the restaurant doesn’t hold reservations!
Granger & Co
Bill Granger’s chain of sunny-side-up all-day restaurants preaches the gospel of bronzed healthy indulgence, with a line-up of goodness-packed dishes including some proper thick Aussie hotcakes. Find these ricotta-based pancake riffs in the breakfast and lunch ‘classics’ at Granger & Co, stacked up and served in mouth-watering modern style with banana and honeycomb butter (plus grilled Wiltshire bacon if you need a salty fix).
Gloria: Shoreditch’s new hot spot and sister restaurant to Big Mama’s Circolo Popolare is a cross between a chintzy burrata-filled emporium and a traditional Italian grandma’s parlour. The vibe will immediately set you up for a good time, and the food will always leave you full and still wanting more! Dine on the delicious airy ricotta pancakes for breakfast or brunch. These come with caramelised banana as standard, plus your choice of toppings – perhaps maple syrup or homemade chocolate sauce.
My Old Dutch
Founded in 1958 and now a must-visit on London’s tourist trail, My Old Dutch is often regarded as the original London pancake house, offering visitors a mouthful of delicious options. Choose from a selection of choices such as their ‘butterscotch specials’ pancakes with an assorted option of Maple Syrup, chocolate chips, banana’s, caramel and whipped crème toppings giving you the option to build your perfect pancake tower.
The restaurant also has a completely Gluten-free and dairy-free vegan menu for guests to dine on, including their Sweet Berry Heaven with accompanying vegan toppings also. With branches in both Holborn, Chelsea and Kensington, head over for a day spent at one of the city’s most iconic Pancake houses.
