      I agree with Clinton St. Bakery. Their pancakes are one of, if not THE, best in town.

        Ditto. Because a) they make their own maple butter in house and b) they beat the egg whites separately and then fold them in at the very last second so the pancakes are super fluffy.

          ditto! i don't even like pancakes that much and found their blueberry pancakes w/maple butter to die for - YUM!

          1. Upstairs at Fairway 74th/Broadway....the best

              Are we talking the same Clinton St here? I've been several times and their pancakes are thick,dry, and cakey. I am not a fan. But many are so what do I know.

            2. I haven't had the ones at Clinton St, but used to love the pancakes at E.J's Luncheonette on 6th Ave. I know there is still an E.J's uptown but have not been

              1. I agree that Clinton St has great pancakes, but I also love the pancakes at Blue Fin.
