As tomorrow is officially Pancake Day here in the United Kingdom, I wanted to do a little roundup of my favourite local cafes/restaurants where you can order pancakes!
Just in time for you to make that last minute dash… After all, why go to the trouble of buying the ingredients and settling for a miserable looking pancake (well, it’s certainly miserable looking in my case when I’ve attempted to make them previously!) when you can have one that tastes as delicious as it looks!?
HARROGATE - THE WILD PLUM // SNOOTY FROX
The Wild Plum is renowned for its GORGEOUS food which honestly looks as beautiful as it tastes! Voted 5 stars on Trip Advisor consistently, and is ranked in the top 5 of the best restaurants to visit whilst in Harrogate, it isn’t hard to see why… Using fresh and local produce, the pancakes come with cute, little edible flowers which naturally makes for the perfect ‘Instagram shot’ alongside seasonal fruit, whipped cream, nutella, maple syrup and pecans. You can find The Wild Plum upstairs at Snooty Frox Boutique but please note, this coffee shop gets busy rather quickly, so it’s best to get there a little early to avoid queuing or any disappointment in case it’s too full!

HARROGATE - FILMORE & UNION
If I’m ever in need of a health kick, you’ll most likely find me grabbing a take-out Filmore & Union ‘Back to Basics’ bagel, yum. With that being said however, for a ‘naughty treat’, their pancakes are equally delicious! Using only the highest quality local, fresh produce from nearby farmers and suppliers, Filmore & Union aim to provide the best nutrients which helps nourish the body and soul. Their pancakes come with two options:
Sweet - with Greek Yoghurt and berries
Savoury - Scrambled eggs and bacon
I tend to opt for the ‘sweet’ version as seen in the photograph as I find savoury pancakes can be a little too heavy at times! Filmore & Union have many branches which you can find dotted all over Yorkshire which all have pancakes on their menus too.

LONDON - NEPTUNE LONDON
Following my recent trip to Kimpton Fitzroy down in Bloomsbury, London, I had the pleasure of visiting Neptune which is hidden away in the corner of the hotel. You can view the full review of both Kimpton Fitzroy and Neptune London and see how I got on there! I opted for their sweet pancakes which came with blueberries and raspberries drizzled in raspberry sauce along with Greek Yogurt. As I’m typing this my mouth is watering so let’s wrap this up…

I hope these delicious pancakes have swayed your minds to try these out tomorrow!
