If you find yourself needing an excuse to dedicate a day of your life to the fluffy, flavorful, fabulous creation that is the pancake, your opportunity is just over the horizon. National Pancake Day is coming up on September 26, and Dallas is poised for celebration.
We’ve put together a list of 9 restaurants that will be more than accommodating to your flapjack fantasies, adding in a bit more flair than just your average hotcake.
This popular Uptown brunch spot mashes up two breakfast staples with their bacon-stuffed pancakes for $10.99 a stack. It seems bacon and pancakes are destined to be together forever, and we’re not complaining.
For a different but equally as tasty treat, head down to Lower Greenville and try out Remedy’s corn-fried bread for $11. Cornmeal griddle cakes dripping in maple syrup and salted butter, what more do you need?
Original Pancake House
The casual diner takes us across the pond with their thin, crepe-like Swedish pancakes. The sweet treat is topped with lingonberries and whipped butter.
This popular brunch spot is pulling out the big guns with their “Heavy Handed Blueberry & House Made Ricotta Cheese Pancakes” topped with vanilla-poached apricots and cream. Wipe the drool from your chin and speed over to Oak Cliff to claim your floury prize.
Kuby’s is well known for their traditional European offerings, and Oma’s Kartoffel Pfannkuchen is no exception. Don’t worry if you can’t pronounce it, that shouldn’t stop you from devouring it. The Pfannkuchen are potato pancakes, very similar to latkes, served with applesauce and sour cream. That combination alone should be enough to entice your taste buds.
Garden Café presents their own version of the potato pancake but switches it up with a sweet version, coming in at $6.50 per stack. The sweet potato pancakes are served with a side of organic Vermont maple syrup.
They should be playing Christmas music round-the-clock with their festive offerings of red velvet and gingerbread pancakes. If you’re still reeling from the Dallas heat and wishing for colder days ahead, sneak over to Oddfellows and pick up three cakes for $8.50. You can even play a little “Jingle Bell Rock” while enjoying your merry meal, we won’t tell.
Crossroads Diner is adding a bit of southern flair with their down-home Pecan pancakes. Feel free to debate the correct pronunciation of this beloved nut while gobbling up all the cakes you can get a hold of at $8.50 a plate.
CBD Provisions makes a play on traditional Johnnycakes with their Texas version, adding in sweet corn, sourdough, Texas cheddar, and just a smidgen of local honey to add some sugary sweetness. One plate will run you $14, but I guarantee you’ve never tasted the likes of it before.
