Where To Go Out For Pancakes


Whether you like them served with sugar and lemon or prefer a savoury selection, Pancake Day deserves a space in any food lover’s diary. The big day falls on the 28th February this year, but you don’t have to limit yourself to just one sitting, there are plenty of places all over the city where you can indulge your pancake fix every day of the week. From special, one-off creations to age-old classics, we’ve whittled down the best crêperies, cafés and restaurants in London serving up the finest pancakes around.

The Breakfast Club

This devilishly good all-day diner boasts a mighty menu of breakfast and brunch offerings, but the stacked pancakes are something to truly savour. Get your ultimate fix this Pancake Day, as the annual Breakfast Club Challenge returns, giving pancake fiends the chance to tackle a towering stack of 12 pancakes in 12 minutes, with all profits donated to charity. Flavours include bourbon pulled-pork cubanos, with cheese, kale and pickled slaw; triple chocolate, fudge and mallow; salted caramel banoffee; and lemon meringue pie. Not for the fainthearted or the calorie conscious.

Mamie’s Crêperie

Transport your taste buds to the cobbled streets of Paris – Mamie’s Crêperie is as close as you’ll get to traditional French crêpes and buckwheat galettes. Classics on the menu include everything from egg, ham, cheese and onion to home-made salted caramel and cooked apples with vanilla ice cream – this is pancake flipping in its most exquisite form.

Granger & Co.

Bill Granger’s Australian-inspired brunch spot always gets it right, but for a serious pancake hit, order the ricotta hotcakes that come slathered in honeycomb butter and banana. Gorgeously fluffy and with a hint of sour to cut through all that rich, sweet butter.

La Petite Bretagne

This traditional crêperie in Hammersmith and Clapham is the real deal, offering made-to-order buckwheat galettes with an array of glorious savoury fillings – think classic ham and cheese; smoked salmon and crème fraîche; and tartiflette with bacon and Reblochon cheese – as well as sweet crêpes filled with Nutella and banana; salted caramel; and strawberries with whipped cream. Sit back in stylish surroundings and indulge in a Breton cider or two.

Mac & Wild

Mac & Wild are sticking to their roots to celebrate Pancake Day this year, with a rather special Scottish crépe creation. Introducing the battered Mars bar pancake. The ultimate indulgence, this mighty pancake is filled with luxurious chocolate ganache and gooey caramel, then battered and deep-fried to create a wonderfully hot and crunchy outer layer.

For pancakes with a healthy twist, head to Notting Hill’s Farmacy, where they’ll whip you up a sweet treat using all organic ingredients, and free-from dairy, gluten, refined sugars and additives. Made using gluten-free buckwheat flour and served with fresh fruit, coconut ‘yoghurt’, chia berry jam, maple syrup and decorated with edible flowers. And for those looking to make the most of the last treat day before lent, order a side of indulgent, vegan chocolate sauce to drizzle generously over the top.

The Americans love a good pancake, so it comes as no surprise that Avenue on St James' Street is taking it to extremes this Shrove Tuesday. Think big-boy banana pancakes, salted caramel ice cream, chocolate fudge sauce or zesty passion fruit crêpe soufflé with vanilla sauce.

Le Pont de la Tour

Pancake gurus Le Pont de la Tour will, of course, be serving their ever-popular Crêpe Suzettes this Pancake Day, but to add to the mix, they’ll be serving the sweet treats with a glass of Jurançon ‘La Magendia’ Lapeyre, all for just £15. Crêpes will be cooked in front of you and served hot with a glorious drizzle of sugar, orange juice and Grand Marnier liqueur, poured over to flambé.

Social Pantry

To celebrate Pancake Day American style, Social Pantry Café in Battersea will be hosting a special five-day event with three delicious pancake dishes, curated especially for the big day. Choose from bacon, blueberry and maple syrup; banana, warm chocolate and Nutella with hazelnut; and rhubarb, pistachio, honey and mascarpone.

Riding House Café

This trendy Fitzrovia brasserie is one of our favourite spots for breakfasts, mainly because they serve up the most moreish buttermilk pancakes. And when they come piled high with berries, vanilla clotted cream and a generous glug of sticky maple syrup, they’re pretty much impossible to resist.

Riding House Café, 43-51 Great Titchfield Street, Fitzrovia

We have our Australian friends to thank for this hip, Balham-based café, and thankful we are, as their Aussie-inspired sweet treats are seriously out of this world. All pancakes are made using gluten-free buckwheat flour and topped with decadent delights including Yorkshire rhubarb and strawberries with honey mascarpone.
