“Soak up the buzzy atmosphere of Flat Iron Square while you bite into fabulously fluffy buttermilk pancakes topped with sweet or savoury ingredients; it’s a great way to spend an hour!”

Where The Pancakes Are Menu

These pancakes are made using Shipton Mills organic flour and buckwheat flour with high welfare eggs and buttermilk. They have your back if you’d prefer a vegan, dairy-free and wheat-free alternative batter! The maple syrup is 100% pure, so you’re in for a real treat. Homeboy and I have eaten here a few times, and it’s always delicious.

Vegan Breakfast Pancakes With Fried Eggs

If you want something savoury, try the Welsh Rarebit with mature cheddar and grilled spring onions. The 1000 Baby Greens tasted healthy thanks to the abundance of baby green leaves with spring onions, lime-coriander butter, green chilli and cumin. The Breakfast option features a fried egg, Swaledale Butcher’s streaky bacon and sausage, roasted cherry tomatoes, Portobello mushroom and baked beans. The Vegetarian Breakfast alternative substitutes the meat for halloumi and roasted peppers. The Vegan dish is super tasty. Yes, these all come with pancakes and often pure maple syrup.

If you have a sweet tooth, you really must try the Hummingbird Pancakes, which is a pretty plate of cinnamon-poached pineapple, house cream, lime syrup with zest, pomegranate and toasted coconut; need I say more? The Banana Praline Marshmallow is also a winner with banana, hazelnut sunflower cocoa nib praline and, oddly enough, basil marshmallow. You get to choose chocolate or sea-salted caramel sauce as well. Other sweet pancakes come with English strawberries and forest berries, or you can keep things simple with maple syrup and butter or lemon and sugar.

There are a couple of Dutch Babies, an American interpretation of an old German dish with nothing to do with Holland, as the Dutch name would imply. It looks somewhat like a Yorkshire pudding and is oven-baked, which takes approximately twenty minutes. Choose between apples, berries and a scoop of vanilla ice cream or the savoury version with dill, rocket, salted yoghurt, smoked paprika-chilli butter and poached egg.
