Restaurant that delivers Pancakes (to Yorkville)? NO PANCAKES ANYWHERE!

I have recently moved to Toronto after living in new York and Boston and you probably know how staple of a food is pancakes in the US... I always lived downtown, could get it delivered from any diner or sites like, (oh btw, these sites do NOT charge for delivery unlike Canadian websites)..

Now I live near Yorkville in Toronto and having the hardest time to find a restaurant and even a website which will deliver pancakes (or even serve them nearby) -- excluding catering-size orders. WHAT'S UP WITH THIS? I don't want to make them myself, but c'mon Toronto, it's not escargot, it's pancakes... Please help me if you know a place!

Thanks very much in advance

  1. Flo's Diner in Yorkville has pancakes. They don't deliver, but they are right there in your neighbourhood. There are also a few "real" diners in the Annex (People's Diner, Vesta, etc.) that serve pancakes.

    And no, you simply won't find the kind of delivery options in Toronto that you had in New York.

      Hey thanks for your reply - I actually had take out from Flo's this morning, they do not have pancakes (only waffles and french toast)... I will try those annex diners on a weekend that I have the energy to go outside (thanks for the recommendations!), but I guess pancake delivery is still not an option...

        Oh, sorry about Flo's! I was sure they had pancakes. My bad!

        1. Avenue Diner at Ave and Dav definitely serves pancakes and if you don't mind a more upscale experience, you could hit up any of the Yorkville hotel restos - Studio Cafe in the Four Seasons, One at The Hazelton, Park Hyatt or Inter-Continental. Whole Foods may have them sometimes in their breakfast buffet (maybe just weekends?) and Cantine might also serve them on weekends. I'm not a fan but some people like Over Easy on Bloor.

          Can't think of any place that would deliver them - and I also can't imagine that delivered pancakes, in need of a reheat, would be that much more appealing or easier than whipping up your own batch at home. I know you said you don't want to make them (and I hate when people tell me to make something myself when I'm looking for a ready-made version so forgive me...) but there are decent mixes that require nothing more than the addition of water. You'd have fresh hot pancakes in less than 10 minutes, whenever you want them, topped with some Canadian maple syrup and you are set!
