Millie's Pancake Haus

6530 Tanque Verde, Tucson, AZ - (520) 298-4250
The specialty of the house, of course, is pancakes. They come in different sizes and flavors, from basic buttermilk (which are thick, steamy, and light-textured) to wafer thin crepes that are used as “French pancakes” topped with jelly, Cointreau, cherry, or apricot. The super-thin ones are also used for “Swedish pancakes,” which are accompanied by a cup of lingonberry sauce.

We're not sure why these buttermilk pancakes topped with apricot sauce are called Bohemian, but they sure are delicious.  That's a cup of thick sour cream in the background.

Swedish pancakes are served with lingonberry sauce. It's a great idea, but not so well executed. For this dish to work, the pancakes have to be featherlight, not elasticized.

The menu warns that the German Apple Pancakes takes a full 25 minutes to prepare because it is baked rather than griddle-cooked. It was too chewy for our taste, and the ordinary syrup supplied on the side offered no improvement. We'd rather spend the 25 minutes eating something good.

Frail, thin, and savory, these crepes arrive folded into quarters with a cup of lingonberry sauce on the side.
