Any breakfast places in Toronto that make HOMEMADE PANCAKES from scratch?

We often go out for breakfast / brunch and find that most places make pancakes from a mix.
Anybody know of a good place, ideally in the east end... Leslieville, Beaches, Danforth.

    Hmmm... I think Auntie's and Uncle's make theirs from scratch... they were very tasty, at any rate!

        I agree with the Ontario Bistro suggestion. They make great pancakes , actually their breakfasts are thr best!! Lately I've been having a bowl of yougurt with fresh fruit, some granola and a drizzle of honey. YUM. Friendly service and great food!!!

        I'm pretty sure that Fresh makes theirs from scratch.
        Three locations, but nothing much further east than Bloor/Spadina.

          You may like Vivetha. I think their pancakes are from scratch. They also use organic blueberries in their mix which works well. They're at the far end of the Beaches on Queen (near Victoria Park). Good luck -- hope it meets your expectations. Get there early as they tend to fill up really quickly for brunch.

            Oh, please, that would be great. Even better... Serve the homemade pancakes with REAL maple syrup!!!

              Mildred Temple on Hanna St (Liberty Village) makes the Biederhoff blueberry pancakes. They've got to be made from scratch to make them so fluffy and delicious. They serve with pure maple syrup, too!

                Those are the best! I bought her cookbook just for that recipe.

                  Now that does sound good. It's just so inconveniently located for me (and the OP, it seems). Anywhere east-end?

                    I have had them, they are great, but I did not know they are from scratch

                    Does Cora's still go from scratch? I love their buckwheat crepes. Boom is good too.

                      I haven't had them but the Senator makes pancakes from scratch.

                          in markham, there is this little divey bakery called 'T and T Bakery' on main street markham. family owned/operated. needs a serious makeover, for sure.

                          when i do go there for breakfast, i never miss the pancakes. made from scratch - SUPER fluffy. two big fluffy ones for about $4-5. i think they also serve them with fruit and other garnishes, but i always order mine straight up.
