Our Favourite Pancake Spots on Pancake Day

Our Favourite Pancake Spots on Pancake Day

Pancakes on Pancake Day make sense. Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the traditional feast that marks the start of the build-up to Easter… the feast before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday – a Christian fast.

This is why a custom has arisen of making pancakes to use up all ingredients in the pantry, which are traditionally given up for Lent.

Celebrate Pancake Day with a delicious stack of thick and fluffy goodness from any of our top picks below.


Café Cuba

Oh today’s a special day and Café Cuba have announced a buy one get one free special offer on all pancakes and waffles. Book your table at any of their four locations. And get ready to stuff your face with not one, but two of their delicious stacks.

The Pancake Parlour

The name of this one speaks for itself. The Pancake Parlour is open all day from 9 am till 9pm, so indulge in a wide selection of pancakes for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. Take home a few mini pancakes for the rest of the fam – they’re as cute as can be!



Satisfy whichever pancake topping craving you may have at Burgers.Ink. Don’t be fooled by the name of this eatery. They do specialise in burgers, but they take their pancakes seriously too. Trust us on this one!


Local fashion designers Charles and Ron are equally passionate about food as much as their love affair with fashion.
They’ve added pancakes to their menu for a limited time only. So hurry, as they’ll only be available till the 6 March. Choose between honey and sweet whipped ricotta, drizzled in Pistachio cream, or opt for a classic with maple syrup and a knob of butter, topped with fresh fruits. We wouldn’t miss out on this one if we were you!
