Long before there was smashed avo, pancakes were the darling of weekend brunches.
Is there anything better than savouring a stack of fluffy pancakes with a good cup of coffee on a leisurely Sunday?
From buckwheat to buttermilk, we’ve been flat out with the tough task of finding the Coast’s best pancakes.
Here’s how they stack up…
Best for vegans
Modern Organic’s buckwheat, blueberry and banana pancakes, topped with whipped coconut, berries and maple, are vegan friendly and gluten free.
They’re also relatively guilt free, until you factor in the hazelnut mousse and chocolate soil.
Like everything that’s served up at this hip organic yoga cafe in Long Jetty, these pancakes are full of delicious goodness.
They’re available all day everyday.
Pancakes don’t get much fancier than this.
Like dessert for breakfast, Bellyfish at Terrigal plates up beautiful apple crumble pancakes complete with stewed apple, crumble, ice cream and a few edible flowers to boost their #foodporn credentials.
The pancakes are damn near perfect – fluffy as cotton balls and with a hint of vanilla.
These babies are best enjoyed with a Single O espresso or an açai smoothie, basking in the morning sun and gazing out over Terrigal beach.
Most health-conscious/Best healthy option for kids
At Jasmine Greens, you can eat pancakes all day if your heart desires.
Best classic stack
Glee Coffee Roasters at Erina Heights is the place to head if you like your pancakes fluffy and fat.
The chefs at this popular café serve up a generous stack of pancakes (that could easily feed two small people) with lashings of maple syrup, banana and pretty nasturtiums.
They’re like little clouds of goodness that melt in your mouth.
Add Glee’s famous Central Coast coffee and you might just find yourself in breakfast heaven.
