  1. I seem to remember Perkins have pretty decent pancakes.

    1. First watch has good pancakes.

      1. The best are north of Orlando at the Sugar Mill in DeLeon Springs State Park. They are amazing, and you cook them on the table yourself.

          Kudos to this!! I love going to the "make your own pancakes place"!! They are yummy and you can add anything you want (my fav is banana). Very unique place, and you can go for a hike or a swim after!
          Also, is anyone else bummed that the Breakfast Club no longer has late night hours?

              It's located in an old Sugar Mill in Deleon Springs. Literally there are griddles in the middle of each table! They bring out pitchers of batter (plain and buckwheat) and you can order any "toppings" that you can cook into the pancakes. If you want eggs with your breakfast, they bring you an egg and you cook it yourself. Granted I'm a cook and I could do this at home, but the novelty of it really draws me in.
              There is also a spring for swimming and hiking trails...(it's located in a Deleon Springs National Park). The only drawback is that it gets super busy and hot during the summer months.

                I meant, tell me more about the change(s) at the Breakfast Club . . .


                1. re: Bob Mervine

                  Ha, oops. They are no longer re-opening at midnight for all the late night crowds...

        2. Just north of Apopka on 441 is a little place called the Plymouth Woodshed. They serve some of the best blueberry pancakes I've ever eaten.

          1. Is Orlando such a culinary wasteland for Breakfast that we have these limited options for a good stack of Pancakes? Please tell me NO!!!!!!!!!

              No it's not.If anything I think the traditional Southern breakfast is alive and well in Central Florida. Areas with no "fine dining" options, still produce real local places where people stop by everyday for breakfast and lunch. But you wanted a recommendation - I am fortunate in that I have a good place close to where I live and I told you about it.
              What more do you want?
