Pancake Day is a brilliant excuse to indulge and enjoy ourselves. With January successfully out of the way, it’s time to loosen the purse strings a little and enjoy the best London has to offer in the way of delicious treats. Whether you like them sweet, savoury or a combo of both, here’s a run-down of the tastiest pancake houses delivering to you this Pancake Day.
My Old Dutch
The team at My Old Dutch have been keeping bellies full since 1958, so it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about pancakes. They have a mind-blowing selection of over 40 flavours, plus the chance to customise your own, so you’ll be able to find something for every craving. Three restaurants spread over Chelsea, Kensington and Holborn are all delivering this year.
The Breakfast Club
Yellow beacons of pancake-filled hope will be making their way to your doorstep if you choose to order from The Breakfast Club. Choose from a selection of their delicious Pancake Day specials including their Jim's Apple Pie and Missisipi mud pie pancakes.
La Petite Bretagne
A place that expertly brings the French crêpe to the capital, La Petite Bretagne is a must try. They have a range of over 30 original sweet and savoury crêpes available and can also turn their hand to waffles if you’re looking for something a little bit different. Located in Hammersmith, the crêperie are offering a click and collect service as well as delivery. Head over to their website to see a full list of options available.
Crêpeaffaire has a nationwide presence and with eight restaurants across London, you can sit back, relax and be safe in the knowledge that you’re in good hands. Sweet, savoury, breakfast and vegan options are available at the tip of your fingers for you to enjoy this Pancake Day.
The Polo Bar
Located in Liverpool Street, the Polo Bar is a great option for those who are out and about and would like to grab some pancakes on the go. It’s a brilliant chance for you to work off the pancake as soon as you’ve eaten it so no guilt is needed. They’ll serve you anything from apple pie and custard pancakes to a delicious cookies and cream option. A really good choice if you want to factor in a lockdown walk at the same time.
