The Pancake Pantry in Nashville

MeghanEats May 13, 2009 07:35 AM

I am going to be in Nashville this weekend and I am dying to try the Pancake Pantry. The website www.pancakepantry.com takes to one in Gatlinburg. Is this the same people/food? And for all of you in the know, it is located at the corner of Hillsboro Pike and Belcourt, correct?

    Not certain, but I recall the owners of the Nashville Pancake Pantry opened the Gatlinburg location, but subsequently sold it.

    Pancake Pantry is a Nashville original (actually it is at the intersection of 21st Avenue South and Belcourt in Hillsboro Village) -- it certainly every kind of pancake you can imagine. I usually go for the traditional buttermilk or the sweet potato pancakes are hard to beat (cinnamon syrup is superb).

    Get there early on Saturday -- no later than 7 a.m. -- or be prepared to stand in line for up to an hour. As an aside, if there's a non-breakfast eater in your party, their cheeseburger's pretty good, too. My son isn't a pancake eater, but they've made him a cheeseburger for breakfast on several occasions.

      what if we go around noon or 1 p.m.? There will only be two of us eating. I am totally pumped about the cinnamon syrup. I guess there is no menu online.

        I went at 1:15 on a Tuesday and there was still a 30-minute wait.

        One of the best things on the menu is the french toast.
