The Original Pancake House
Nearly 70 people lost everything this past weekend, when an extra-alarm fire ripped through their condo building in the Morgan Park neighborhood.
There’s nothing like a good stack of golden pancakes in the morning with butter and syrup. And there’s nothing like the sugar coma they put you in an hour or two later after you finish them. The best pancakes I ever had were at the Historic Requa Inn in northern California. But, since we’re nowhere near the Redwood Forest, here are the best pancakes in Chicago.
I’m a sucker for a fruit-filled crepe, so at least once a month I attempt to find the latest, greatest and yummiest crepe I can. While a crepe may be known as a French delicacy, many other restaurants in Chicago have mastered the recipes and added their own zing. I am very happy to share with you my favorite places to enjoy my very most favorite breakfast dish.
