I was super excited to hear that a new pancake house had opened up in London. Pancake evenings are a regular occurrence in my household since I was introduced to savoury pancakes on a trip to Australia. When two of my friends suggested catching up for brunch I conveniently recommended we pay a visit to Where the Pancakes Are…
Where the Pancakes Are is one of London’s hidden treasures, it is tucked away in Flat Iron Square a vintage market hosted in a collection of railway arches. The market is within walking distance of London Bridge and Borough Market so you can go on a food tour of the area.
The ethos behind “where the pancakes are” is to create simplistic pancakes with healthy ingredients. They cater to a wide range of dietary needs as there are gluten free and vegan pancakes available too. I opted for the Australian, which consisted of polenta corn fritters served with avocado and crème fraiche. I have also had the savoury dutch babies in the past, which are incredible! If you aren’t pushed for time (as they take 20 minutes to bake) they are certainly worth ordering.
The Scandinavian inspired décor makes Where the Pancakes Are the ideal place to relax and catch up with friends. They also have a great selection of juices for those on the January health drive. It is certainly worth booking a table ahead of your visit as the restaurant is quite small and extremely popular at the weekend.
I’ve heard on the grape vine that they are also hosting a special event for Shrove Tuesday which will celebrate British pancake traditions so make sure you stop by!
