If decadence is your craving, binge on the banana macadamia nut pancakes at Norma’s. There are several other pancakes with equally luxurious toppings but the pancakes covered in candied walnuts and macadamia nuts, loaded with whipped banana-brown sugar butter is our pick of the day. You may not even want to douse your pancakes with their very delicious pure maple syrup which can be a treat in itself.
423 Amsterdam Ave, 212-496-6280
Like a little bit of tang in your pancake? The lemon ricotta pancakes at Sarabeth’s West are to die for. Of course, we prefer that you live and go through a stack of these deceptively plain-looking pancakes. One sort of expects the pancake to look a little, well, yellow since they are lemon pancakes but all you get are pancakes with powdered sugar and a little fruit on the side. All you need is one bite and you will drown in a combination of lemon, butter, ricotta cheese, and maple syrup. Drown like a ton of bricks!
Good Enough to Eat
483 Amsterdam Ave, 212-496-0163
Are you a chocoholic and a pancake aficionado? Good Enough to Eat has chocolate pancakes that are actually good enough to sink your teeth in. Creatively named Peter Paul’s Pancakes (we do ask why, though!) these pancakes have a topping of Belgian chocolate, whipped strawberry butter, and shredded coconut. You can even have these pancakes for dessert at dinner time once a week. Go get your reservations now.
Bubby’s Pie Co.
120 Hudson St, 212-219-0666
If you are interested in experimenting a bit with your pancakes, try the sour cream pancakes at Bubby’s Pie Co. No, they aren’t really sour or anything like that. They are just made with a special sour cream. Besides, they also serve fresh seasonal toppings along with their pancakes and you can take your pick from peaches, blueberries, cherries, and strawberries.
156 Chambers St, 212-267-6740
You may have heard of gingerbread & gingerbread biscuits, but ever heard of gingerbread pancakes? Kitchenette Tribeca offers seasonal gingerbread pancakes that are perfectly complemented by warm pumpkin butter. These pancakes are made from whole wheat flour, white flour, cornmeal, and oats. Have them when you have a hearty appetite. Come hungry and enjoy them heartily.
80 Spring St, 212-343-1274
Continuing with the list of incredible pancakes in NYC, apple-cinnamon pancakes are next in line. Plan a Sunday brunch at the Balthazar. That’s the only time when you can lay your hands on delectable, delightful, and amazing apple cinnamon pancakes. There are no words to describe the experience of dunking a forkful of this heavenly thing in your mouth. Have them know what we are talking about.
99 Stanton St, 212-995-0099
Finally, the best silver dollar pancakes in New York. Even if these tiny tykes leave you forever asking for more, you cannot deny silver dollar pancakes their charm. The Stanton Social has silver dollar pancakes in more flavors than you can conceive of – lemon blackberry, buttermilk, and vanilla bean.
This leaves us quite hungry, so we are off to do our rounds of a few more eating joints in Manhattan so we can keep you updated on the wonders of the culinary world. See you later.
