Like arguing about the swimming methods of starfish, people seem unable to agree on the perfect breakfast food. Some people say there’s nothing better than mom’s scrambled eggs, others vote for French-toast. Most people seem to agree though, that if pancakes are on offer, that’s what they’ll go for. Indulge in the champion of breakfast-foods and pay R17.50 for two cinnamon pancakes and a cup of filter coffee from Heavenly Pancake House.
Gossip amongst the locals is that the pancakes from Heavenly Pancake House are just what it says on the tin. Made from scratch, you’ll be treated to the sizzling sound of batter hitting a hot grill if you listen close enough. After all, tucking into fresh pancakes still warm from the pan is far better than anything out of a tin. Either kick back inside the cosy eatery, surrounded by the delicious smell of breakfast delights and local paintings, or take your pancakes outside and see whether the seagulls really are saying mine mine mine.
Wherever you enjoy your cinnamon-sugared treats, wash it down with a warm cup of filter coffee. Not just made for mornings, a good cup of coffee is a compliment to any meal and if you are enjoying your pancakes for breakfast, the cup o’ joe is as mandatory as providing proof of address at the bank.
Flat Fact: The first pancake was eaten in Nebraska after a bad snowstorm. A nameless and reclusive writer barricaded himself in his room, choosing to hide under his desk rather than come outside and risk getting cold, so his friends had to pass him food under the door which led to them designing new types of flat foods, including the pancake and pita-bread.
