Where to find the best pancakes in Bristol

Our list of the best places to chow down on pancakes this Shrove Tuesday and beyond

 Pancake day is upon us and to celebrate the one day in the year where you can devour as many pancakes as you want without receiving any side eye glances, we’ve put together a list of the very best places to grab those goodies in Bristol

Gather round with your nearest and dearest to shut out the bitter cold as you enjoy some of the most mouth-watering pancakes that have ever been flipped today.

Crepe & Coffee Cabin (Prince Street)

Coffee Cabin

This waterfront cabin between Thekla and the Arnolfini is a cosy spot tucked away on Prince Street catering to the pickiest coffee and crepe lovers. Providing the most beautiful pancakes, exceptional customer service and a little something sweet and warm for all. 

Rocotillo’s (Queens Row)


This casual hang out-style café is fast leaving an impressive trail of beaming reviews for its killer American pancakes and welcoming atmosphere, not to mention great music. So, if you’re on the lookout for the monstrous US-styled crepes smothered in honey and topped with two rashers of bacon and a fried egg plus a fun, relaxed afternoon, this American diner is just for you.

Buttermilk & Maple (Welsh back)


Found in the heart of Bristol city centre, the all-day brunch specialists at Buttermilk & Maple are offering a generous helping of £1 pancakes from 11am to 4pm with only £1 extra for the chance to customize your desert (or in my case, entire lunch) with berries or crispy bacon. If all that doesn’t fill you up, stay a little longer to enjoy all the cocktails and snacks in store for all its guests today.

Primrose Café (Clifton Village) 

Primrose Cafe

Tucked away in the leafy streets of Clifton Village, this is the perfect place to watch the hustle and bustle of the world go by. Primrose Café offers a private and secluded roof garden to shut out the noise while indulging in the very best array of breakfast and luxurious deserts you could hope to enjoy in Bristol. It goes without saying that the pancakes are heavenly and the company divine.

Boston Tea Party (Park Street) 

Boston Tea Party

Just a short walk up from The Bristol, this tea party provides such a variety that shall leave you spoilt for choice. Brimming with vegetarian friendly, vegan and gluten free options as well as the use of sustainable ingredients in all their baked goods, means that whether you’re scoffing down their delicious pancakes and scones, a filling brunch or just a classic tea and coffee, well there’s nothing to really complain about is there?
