It’s a restaurant that combines the DIY spirit of arts and crafts with delicious pancakes. What more could a kid ask for? This restaurant allows you to build and cook your own pancakes right there on the table in front of you. Pick from any four of their delicious batters, including buttermilk, chocolate, gluten-free, and a rotating variety of seasonal flavors. Then squeeze the bottle of batter right onto the cooktop and start adding in your own toppings! Kids will love mixing and matching delicious add-ins like blueberries and chocolate chips, plus some less traditional pancake ingredients like peanut butter chips, bacon, or avocado. Of course, there’s plenty of options for those who aren’t big pancake fans with a variety of other delicious breakfast food – and a robust cocktail menu for the grown-ups!
