Whether you call ’em pancakes, flapjacks or hotcakes – stacked high or eaten one at a time – January 28th is National Blueberry Pancake Day and we’re celebrating at some of Windsor Essex’s finest breakfast spots.

Though we love them filled with fresh berries, why not check out some of these great adaptations and have some fun creating twists on the classic pancake! Red Velvet? Yes!! S’mores? But of course!

Stacks Windsor

These red velvet pancakes come served not only with a dollop of whipped cream but a delicious and tart cream cheese frosting as well.  Bring a friend who wants the double chocolate pancake stack and share for a sweet breakfast combo!

Thyme Kitchen

Choosing between thin, stuffed crepes and their pancake counterpart may just be the hardest decision of your breakfast order! If the fluffy variety doesn’t make you drool, perhaps a blueberry stuffed crepe may be your best bet!
