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 diningin.com, seamlessweb.com (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

    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!

      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!

          A new branch of Sunset Grill opened recently at the corner of Bloor St. E. and Park Road. I haven't been in there yet, but I'm pretty sure they'll have pancakes on the menu (not for delivery, but very close to Yorkville). Seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

            Best pancakes in town are at one of three places: Senator Diner, Aunties and Uncles or a small dive on Dundas east called Ontario Bistro. Not sure why you'd want to have them delivered anyway. Like fries, they get stale very quickly and are almost inedible once cold.

              I actually prefer cold pancakes to warm

              Wow, pancake delivery?! Considering how much an order of pancakes would cost, I can't imagine how any business would even be interested in delivering pancakes!

              I haven't actually looked into this, but just to throw out an idea off the top of my head...what about using one of those food delivery services that will pick up and deliver from various restaurants? Some of these services have a large list of restaurants where they deliver for, but I thought I had heard of a service where they will pick up from whichever restaurant you like. I imagine this would really up the price of your pancakes though!!

                Pusateri's will deliver to a few buildings in Yorkville and will essentially make anything you request. Might be worthwhile stopping by and talking to one of the managers.
