Pancakes in DC
Where can I find great pancakes in DC? Plain, sliver dollar, blueberry, chocolate chip-it doesn't matter.
Bluebucks at Market Lunch are high on my list but I need a place with table service. Thanks
I love The Original Pancake House in Bethesda. (I'm almost positive that's where my bf took me...it's been awhile). The pancakes, as you can imagine are great. I remember having pumpkin pancakes and chocolate chip. Very good!
I use to go to the Diner when I lived in Adams Morgan when I got a late night pancake craving (for some reason it comes at night for me vs the morning).
Mmmmmm now I'm craving pancakes.
Assuming that IHOP isn't your thing, there is one stand-out in this area - The Original Pancake House.
Their signature dish is the Apple Pancake, which is a made-to-order, German-style dish. Essentially, scalloped apples with cinnamon and sugar, browned in a skillet, then covered in a very egg-ie pancake batter, and then the skillet is thrown into a hot oven to be finished. It balloons up in there, and they turn it out onto a plate to be served. It's HUGE!
They are also one of the few places that will make a Dutch Baby, which is a lemony-tasting, balloon-like pancake made with the same type of egg-ie batter, in a skillet, in an oven.
They also have other breakfast foods, waffles, and savory dishes. The only thing I don't like about the Original Pancake House is that they are always crowded on Saturdays and Sundays.
