For those who are excited for Pancake Day, you're not alone! Whether you like yours sweet or savoury, chocolatey or topped with fruit - there are many cafés and restaurants in Exeter where you can enjoy plenty of pancakes on 13th February. Prepare to tuck in because if you weren't craving pancakes before, you certainly will be after reading this blog!

The Cosy Club

Spiced berry pancakes topped with a homemade compote, mascarpone and shortbread crumb or a stack of American pancakes accompanied by smoked streaky bacon, blueberries and maple syrup - now that's what you call a food dilemma from the team at The Cosy Club! What's more, you then have to decide between a three or six stack of pancakes. Our top tip is to go with a friend and choose one of each so you can share these incredible pancakes between you. 

Sacred Grounds

Ok so it's not exactly a pancake but we think it's close enough and who could resist these Heavenly Sacred banoffee waffles, served with chantilly cream, caramelised hazelnuts, toffee sauce, and a chocolate crumb with couverture chocolate chunks. Made with gluten free and vegan ingredients, as well as being lovingly created in-house, Sacred Grounds truly is a foodie haven that's a must visit.

The Ivy

Book a sophisticated breakfast date at The Ivy and dine out on a pretty plate of pancakes. If you're looking to get your five-a-day in one meal then these delicious buttermilk pancakes are decorated with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries with Greek yoghurt, lemon balm and warm red berry sauce. A mixed berry smoothie or peach iced tea would form the perfect partner.

‏‏Brightside‎ Exeter

Inspired by childhood road trips of days gone by, Brightside Exeter serve up good old-fashioned comfort food and of course delicious pancakes form part of the trip down memory lane. Start your day by tucking into triple-stacked pancakes with either granola and berry or the classic bacon and maple syrup. 

‏‏On The Waterfront‎

Brace yourself as this is a bit of a pancake curve ball but as an alternative how about a pizza base smothered in Bisco™, topped with mini marshmallows and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Naturally it comes from a place famed for their pizzas, On The Waterfront, but we think they might be onto something with this tempting treat.
