From fluffy stacks of sweet Stateside pancakes slathered in maple syrup to traditional crêpes with lashings of lemon, there’s an amazing selection of places to enjoy a flipping good pancake, right here in Gloucestershire.
If you’re looking for somewhere to tuck in on Pancake Day / Shrove Tuesday, this Tuesday 25 February 2020, or have a hankering for a sweet treat, SoGlos rounds up eight of the best places in the county to indulge.
Independent Gloucester eatery, Hubble Bubble, offers a diverse choice of delectable dishes including diner-style American pancakes on its breakfast menu – with maple syrup and streaky smoked bacon options or a wild fruit compote for a lighter, zesty alternative.
Serving up sensational sweet treats that are also vegan, Botanica Coffee Kitchen offers delicious pancakes in its Cheltenham café. With toppings including coconut yogurt, cherry compote, seasonal fruit and maple syrup, the pancakes are a must try.
Creams Café Cheltenham in the Brewery Quarter is the brand’s flagship store, decorated with retro booths, an enormous lightbox – perfect for selfies, and artwork by a Swiss graffiti artist, it’s a fun place to visit with friends. Traditional crêpes, waffles, desserts and Italian gelato are all on the menu.
As well as some of the most delicious cakes, Lavender Bakehouse in Chalford serves up buttermilk pancakes with lashings of 100 per cent pure Canadian dark amber maple syrup and fresh fruit – or go the whole hog and choose yours with crispy smoked bacon.
Deep in the Cotswold countryside, alongside the cold-pressed juices and hand-roasted coffee, this Kingham Mecca for all-things-organic serves up fluffy buttermilk Scotch pancakes with honey and winter fruits on its breakfast menu – more than worth getting up early for.
Serving up savoury and sweet options in Gloucester city centre, Yanto’s Pancake House mixes up delicious waffles, crêpes and pancakes, all covered in tempting toppings: from crispy bacon and sausage, ratatouille, all-day breakfast and Spanish fiesta to mixed berries, Oreo and raspberry, or cookie monster varieties. There’s also a vegan and gluten-free menu.
One of Gloucester Quays’ most popular breakfast destinations, Bill’s serves up a couple of delicious options to top its buttermilk pancakes. Pick from blueberries, banana and strawberries with Bill’s pancake syrup or the carnivore’s classic of smoked streaky bacon, for a great start to the day. Alternatively, the sweetcorn pancakes with poached eggs, feta and avocado sounds delicious.
Cheltenham’s ever-popular Boston Tea Party is a prime place to tuck into a plate of lemon and ricotta pancakes, with its menu offering toppings of smoked bacon, maple syrup and maple butter; or blueberry compote and vanilla yoghurt and maple butter – and there’s a children’s version available too.
