There's little in life more satisfying than a fat stack of pancakes.


We asked, and boy, did you answer. The verdict for the best pancake spots in Dublin is in, and it's all because of you fine people! If you're in the market for some banging pancakes, then these are the places the people of Dublin voted for above all else.


Order some buttermilk pancakes from Herbstreet, and choose between chocolate chips and whipped cream, maple syrup, and blueberries and honey butter for your toppings.

You can find Herbstreet on Hanover Quay. They serve brunch between 10am and 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. 


It seems those fluffy pancakes taste as good as they look too. You voted Avoca as one of the best Dublin places to get pancakes, and we can see why. Their pancakes come with a dusting of powdered sugar, cream, syrup, and berries.

There are multiple Avoca locations in Dublin, you can find your closest one HERE


As with all dishes, ALMA put their own spin on it, and their pancakes are no different. You can choose their Dulce de Leche Pancakes, with mascarpone and seasonal fruits, or go for their savoury option, that comes with smoked salmon and eggs.

ALMA is based on South Circular Road in Portobello. 



It's no surprise that Póg made it onto this list. Pancakes are their staple dish and what they know how to make best. You can build your own pancake stack, from what kind of pancake you want, to toppings, to sauces.

There are four Póg locations in Dublin, one on Tara Street, one on Bachelor's Walk, one in Malahide, and one in Howth.
