If any occasion is an excuse to hunt down some of the best stacks in town, this list is the guide for you! Whether you’re an incurably sweet-toothed bruncher, or an all-around flapjack connoisseur, Toronto is stacked (high five) with gourmet pancakes, loaded with all the fixins.
Just because it’s too chilly for a camping trip, doesn’t mean you can’t bring the best part of the experience (read: smores) to your daily Toronto routine. Perched at Queen and Bathurst, Lisa Marie is a fashion district go-to for weekend brunch and late-night cocktails alike. And among its most drool-worthy breakfast offerings are the short stack smore pancakes, loaded with marshmallows and graham crackers –and, gasp, they’re slathered in Nutella, too.
Those particularly partial to ricotta pancakes will want to sample the ones on offer at Dupont darling Rose and Sons, a quick-made fixture on the Toronto breakfast circuit. Slide into a leather booth and take in the Americana vibes of this classic diner with a modern edge. As for the flapjacks, they’re served with sour cherries and maple syrup. Show up on weekdays between 9am and 11am and score yourself an early bird special ;)
Because don’t we all, from time to time, get a hankering for pancakes and smoked duck? Thank goodness Roncesvalles’ BBQ resto-bar also does a fabulous brunch on the weekends, with such a delicacy on offer. Order up a stack, topped with blueberry compote, goat cheese and heaps of maple syrup. If you’re looking to double down on the excess, pair with a Barque Bloody Caesar, accented with a piece of candied smoked bacon.
Just because you’re going without gluten, doesn’t mean you can’t tuck in for some premium hotcakes made right. Stop into one of the four locations of Toronto’s favourite health-conscious café and indulge in the gluten-free pancake platter served alongside a tofu scramble and choice of tempeh bacon or grilled vegan sausage. Or keep it simple and order a stack of the classic, the banana nut, or the blueberry almond – all are 100% gluten-free, served with Earth Balance vegan butter, and drowned in pure maple syrup.
One word: Pandolci. What are they? Don’t worry about it, they involve Nutella and a Scandinavian spin on the American pancake. But proceed with caution, these mini pancake doughballs may just have you drooling all over the table if you’re not careful. Available at midtown’s sexiest Italian osteria for weekend brunch, this derivation of the flapjack-dear is a must try for any hotcake connoisseur.
Making a very persuasive case that pancakes should hereby, forevermore be served in a cast iron pan with a stack as high as gravity will allow, Old School serves up their pancakes with blueberries and whipped brown sugar (yes, this exists) or topped with crunchy cinnamon bananas, peanut butter sauce, and whipped cream. Stop drooling, we’re not finished yet. The Dundas and Bathurst diner also boasts a slew of French toast and waffle options, for the sweetest kind of variety you can imagine. Hot tip: it’s open 24 hours on the weekends.
