A plant based cafe that serves super fluffy pancakes best yet they’re 100% vegan. Only £6.95 for a stack of 4 and a choice of two toppings. We LOVE the chopped nuts and maple syrup combo.
Looking for something that resembles the french crepe rather than the american pancake? Try Cargo Crepe. Located in the Kirkgate Market, this creperie serves up pancakes and pancakes only.

We like the sound of the Blueberry Cheesecake Crepe that features; blueberry compote, lemon cheese cake and biscuit crumbs.
Famous for having the best Ulster Fry in Belfast but 26 West also have some incredible pancake options on their menu- regardless they are the CEO of big brekkies.
