Ahh, Pancake Tuesday you little beaut. A day where you get free reign to eat as many pancakes as you want, without any of the guilt.
Depending on where you’re located hit up one of these ten spots at lunchtime today to get your pancake fix.
Then, once work is over, skip home for a homemade pancake bonanza – starting with a few savoury ones and finishing it off with a sweet one or two for dessert, obviously.
1. Herb Street
This place in Grand Canal Dock just has so many pancake options – blueberries pancakes with orange and honey butter, smoked salmon and crème fraiche or chocolate and whipped cream. Delish.
2. Metro Café
This traditional café on South William Street has a lovely laid back atmosphere, nab a table outside for some quality people watching while you eat your pancakes drowning in maple syrup
3. Lemon & Co
With two locations on Dawson Street and South William Street you can get any kind of sweet or savoury toppings on a pancake, crepe or gluten free buckwheat pancake.
The absolute winner has got to the the Power Plus crepe with spinach, cheddar, bacon, and garlic mayo – serious feed!
4. Queen of Tarts
Fluffy buttermilk pancakes with a seasonal fruit compote and lashings of maple syrup – these pancakes seriously hit the spot.
Just be warned – you’ll be rolled out of the place!
5. Brother Hubbard North & South
A sibling on either side of the Liffey means you’re never too far from one of these brilliant spots…
Their Moroccan-style Semolina pancakes are absolutely perfect, served with ricotta crème, summer berry and rose compote, fresh mint and hazelnut-almond praline.
6. The Bell and Pot
With a focus on healing foods you’ll find heaps of pancake options here, or ‘hotcakes’ as they call them, and you can even get them to throw in some protein if you’re that way inclined.
We’ll even forgive you of you have a little tipple along with them…
The place that’s to blame for delicious smells wafting down Grafton Street and making us all want to bathe in Nutella, gelato, crepes and waffles.
Four locations, and about five billion gorge fillings to choose from. Grab one on your lunch break, just make sure you get a napkin to wipe the telltale Nutella signs off your face.
8. Sweet Republic
All you need to know is: marshmallow, Ferrero Rocher, Kinder Bueno, Nutella stacked pancakes.
9. Yogism & Tang
All-day breakfast in the form of grain, sugar and dairy free pancakes – choose either buckwheat or protein, then top it off with Greek or coconut yogurt, fresh berries, cacao nibs and mounds of homemade almond butter.
10. Póg Froyo
You can’t argue with a stack of protein pancakes with two toppings for €5.95, now can you?
