Pancake Pantry

1796 21st Ave. South, Nashville, TN - (615) 383-9333

My friend and I went to the Pancake Pantry while visiting in Nashville. It is everything I hoped it would be. Our shuttle driver told us he and his wife eat there often.

We were really lucky that the line was quite short. It was just out the door, and we were under cover from the rain. Once inside, I was immediately very impressed with how quickly the staff works. They have an amazing team of bussers that swoop in to clean up and reset a table once guests leave. As quick as they are, however, they do not hover. There is no pressure to eat fast and run.

We were delighted with the food. The sweet potato pancakes are divine. My friend said her pecan pancakes were absolutely wonderful. We were in agreement that we could have eaten a meal of just hash brown potatoes. I would caution that a little bit of the ginger cream syrup goes a long way, but that shouldn't discourage you from trying it.

	Smoky Mountain Buckwheat Cakes look somber, but they are in fact featherlight. The gentle cakes come in a stack of five with plenty of butter and a pitcher of very warm syrup to pour on top.

	Swedish pancakes are thin and eggy, wrapped around lingonberry preserves. No syrup is necessary.

What a dandy breakfast: luxurious hash browns in the foreground, stalwart country ham in back. Who needs eggs or pancakes?

To most foodies, Nashville is (rightfully) known as a city of biscuits, ham, and grits for breakfast.  Once you've eaten here, you'll definitely add pancakes to the list of assets.
