  1. Best pancakes we have had is in a little restaurant called teddy's and it's located in Cranbury. The home fries are very good too. Have not been there lately but have been thinking of going there soon.

      I agree - but only on weekdays !
      The weekend cook hasn't got the touch !

    2. The best place for breakfast I've been to in a longtime is the Pop Shop....after Bobby Flay's Throwdown show there we have enjoyed eating there, great menu....and their Pancakes are oh so good.

      1. The best place that we have found is The Original Pancake House. Their pancakes are just delicious. We go to the one at 817 Bloomfield Ave. in West Caldwell. We have been going there for a number of years. The weekends are very busy, but, they have a large, comfortable waiting area. My DH loves their Apple Pancake. It's an experience. They also have I think two new locations one in Fort Lee and another in Whippany.

        You can see a pic of the apple pancake on their website.

          that apple pancake is something else. too sweet for me to eat for breakfast, but when i was in college i used to order one to bring home, and we would slice it up, stash it in the fridge, and eat as dessert after dinner!

          FYI, parking at the Fort Lee location has always been a NIGHTMARE on weekends, but perhaps it's better now that Borders is closed.

            YES! I am a fan of The Original Pancake House, as well. I used to go every weekend and the food and the service has always been top notch. I love their banana pancakes.

            Speaking of the Apple Pancake, I was in with my mother one Sunday and ordered my "usual" and was told that they were unable to give me apple juice instead of orange since they do not substitute. Yes, it says it on the menu but since I ordered it every other time, I politely commented that i was surprised but didn't make a big deal so I got the OJ. Turns out the man taking our order was one of the owners and he said he felt badly about not making the substitution so he brought over a complimentary Apple Pancake. This just added to my love for this place. I still go every chance I can.

          2. I am far from an expert, but I've always liked the Country Pancake House in Ridgewood. With pancakes, I don't really care how big they are -- I just like what I like, good pancakes, fluffy, not bone-dry, etc.

            1. Definitely Doc's in Denville. Melt in your mouth pancakes...usually a daily special too. Homemade bread for their French toast too.
