10 Places to Get Your Pancake Fix
10 PLACES TO GET YOUR PANCAKE FIX
Pancake Day, best known as Shrove Tuesday, is a great time to try out some new local food places. Or, if you are a business, to experiment with new recipes and present to a wider audience. Pancakes are a personal favourite of mine for weekend brunch dates over a natter and a cuppa. But, where can you get your pancake fix this Shrove Tuesday and everyday within Halifax and surrounding areas? Check out some of these local hot spots for some sweet and savoury treats that are flipping fantastic.
ARCADE COFFEE & FOOD
Arcade Coffee & Food, based in the heart of Huddersfield, is set within the Byram Arcade creating delicious food and drinks. They serve a wide variety of food daily catering for all dietary requirements and recently launched their limited edition pancake menu. With working in Huddersfield, I went for a lovely lunch to indulge on the amazing pancakes on offer and they did not disappoint. I went for a savoury option which was a stack of fluffy pancakes with breakfast style toppings. It was amazing and the sweet options looked great too. Very creative flavours and “insta-gramable” presentation, I would defiantly recommend Arcade if you get the chance to go.
MANOR HOUSE LINDLEY
Manor House Lindley is a beautiful manor based in Lindley, just 10 minutes from Huddersfield and easy access from Halifax. The place itself is truly beautiful with grand decor and different rooms for all occasions. This Pancake Day the business is hosting a ‘Tasting Event’ for a ‘Flipping Good Pancake Day’. The menu is exclusive to Pancake Day and will be served throughout the whole day. At just £7.00 a pancake, you can enjoy deluxe and delicious pancakes all day long.
NORTHERN TEA HOUSE
Northern Tea House is an independent cafe in Huddersfield Town Centre. They are best known for their delicious cakes, afternoons teas and all day menus, as well as a wide selection of hot drinks. I personally love the whole vibe of Northern Tea House and the brand they have created with colourful florals and homely aesthetics. This Pancake Day they have some amazing sweet and savoury pancake on offer including the ‘eggs benny pancake stack’. The exclusive menu will continue until mid-week so catch them if you can!
Noco Kiosk is an Italian inspired kiosk offering authentic street food and drinks. They have created a warm and welcoming outdoor space within Halifax for people to cosy up with a indulgent ‘freak shake’ or coffee with blankets, heaters and sofas. As well as offering breakfast, light bites and pizzas, they are offering pancakes for a limited time with chocolate toppings and more.
Riccis Place is a favourite of mine for breakfast/brunch as they serve their fluffy American style pancakes throughout the whole week which are usually topped with syrup and berries with the option of nutella too. I personally always get a side of bacon with mine to make them extra indulgent washed down with a coffee or fresh juice. Pancake Day is everyday at Riccis on their breakfast menu so pop in this weekend and treat yourself.
HUMBLEST OF PLEASURES
Humblest of Pleasures is a funky, vegan, cafe in the heart of Hebden Bridges high street. Not only does the cafe look totally rad with neon signs, tropical exteriors and drool worthy bakes, but they are 100% vegan in everything they make and bake. You can grab yourself some amazing pancakes here stacked with sweet and savoury treats. I think Humblest of Pleasures is a great place to go if you are vegan or wanting to dip your toe into the vegan world but not sure where to start. Like me, I am not a vegan, but would 10000% still rock up here to get my pancake and good vibe fix.
The Trading Rooms is set within Halifax’s famous Piece Hall spread across the bottom tier of the courtyard. The decor is so lovely with rich greens and navy’s creating a modern yet cosy vibe. They offer a range of different cocktails and dining experiences daily as well as seasonal specials like Pancakes. They have a great breakfast/brunch menu available aside of Pancake Day too so if you like scenic decor, nice food and exploring Halifax’s history then why not head down to the Trading Rooms.
BLONDINS ICE CREAM
Blondin’s Ice Cream Parlour is also set within The Piece Hall offering Italian inspired ice cream along side waffles, pancakes and other sweet treats. You can also enjoy a lovely coffee or two over breakfast or pop in with the kids over the holidays. Blondin’s is best known for their elaborate ice-cream sundaes and pancakes served daily so you can get your pancake fix all week long.
HERITAGE DELI & KITCHEN
Heritage Deli & Kitchen has an amazing brunch menu offering pancakes daily under their ‘sweet brunch treats’ menu. You can enjoy sweet and savoury stacked pancakes with a side of maple syrup or mix it up with french toast. I really love that their brunch menu is available until 2pm for people like me who like a lazy morning on a weekend and the food really does look amazing with glowing reviews. I am yet to try Heritage Deli & Kitchen but it is defiantly on my brunch wish list.
OM IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Om Is Where The Heart Is, is a coffee and brunch bar on the outskirts of Huddersfield. The cafe is also a yoga studio so you can get you yoga and food fix all under one roof. I think this would be a lovely social thing to do on a weekend to catch up with friends over good food and wellbeing activities. Om Is Where The Heart Is offer pancakes on their menu daily which can be topped with homemade jams, banana and other sweet treats.
