Next up, we visited Breakfast Republic. This is almost right across the street from The Mission from my last post. How do the pancakes compare?
So I went crazy and ordered the flight of 3 pancakes from the menu. I figured this would be awesome because I get to try three different pancakes! And I was right. It was awesome.
I tried the Cinnamon bun pancake, Buttermilk pancake (you know, the “control”), and the Blueberry pancake. The buttermilk and the blueberry both came with butter blobs on top… more than enough butter (maybe a little too much?). as you can see in the below photo, they only provided one half cup of syrup in a small cup on the side. I would say this is not enough syrup for two pancakes. I used the syrup on the buttermilk and blueberry pancakes. Maybe they assumed the blueberry didn’t need any syrup of it’s own… I don’t know. You probably will have to ask for more syrup.
Each of these pancakes were really different, but they all tasted great. The cinnamon bun pancake was especially rich. It has this yummy cinnamon frosting on top, as well as walnuts. The combo of these flavors was delicious. The pancake itself passed the fork test, but it did begin to crumble a bit as you got into it, which is probably due to all the frosting soaking in.
The buttermilk pancake was perfectly cooked. This is a super “cakey” pancake, so it’s really fluffy and on the thicker side. The taste was perfect as well. The blueberry pancakes were cooked very similar, but I love that they included the blueberries in the pancake batter, and not just on top of the finished pancake. Both of these were an easy fork test pass.
I highly recommend you try these pancakes in the flight… or go crazy and try some of the many others on the menu!
Colin and I both had coffee with our breakfast. Here are Colin’s Coffee Comments:
“Flies” (we sat outside and there were flies buzzing around. A little annoying, but it didn’t ruin our meal)
