Where the pancakes are....
85a Southwark Bridge Road,

Some of these days the abnormal feels like the new normal. However, we prefer the good old times and are very keen to open our restaurant as soon as it's safe for our team and for all of you, our amazing guests. We expect this will be sometime in early July. Until then, check out our online store to buy DIY kits or just flour mixes for your pancake fix!
Look after yourselves and others, Patricia
Pancakes are simple and honest. They trigger memories of growing up; of good times shared around the stove; or, as in many countries, of evenings spent at the local pancake house. Seeking the same experience in London, we couldn’t find a place to experience the kind of dishes that fuse the ancient art of baking pancakes with modern food trends . This paved the way to Where The Pancakes Are…. our cafe-restaurant in London Bridge/Bankside.
We stubbornly believe that pancakes are an ideal meal any time of the day or a perfect snack to revive the spirit - after school, after work, after the gym, after a gig. Our menu of nutritious buttermilk pancakes is both savoury and sweet, heaving with flavour and made with heaps of tender loving care. For the many who have food sensitivities, we have an alternative "3-1" batter which is wheat-free, dairy-free and egg-free.
Our menus are simple yet it gives plenty of choice at any time of the day. Sweet & savoury, classic & progressive, small or big. Click our menus below to find out more. You will find there are good choices for vegans and vegetarians, including an alternative 3-1 batter which is dairy free, wheat-free and vegan. Do keep in mind that due to our small kitchen, we are not able to guarantee 100% absence of these ingredients in any of our dishes.
Our food and our menu are nothing without the people or the soil who produce our ingredients. Shipton Mill supplies our organic flours; Swaledale purveys our meats from carefully chosen farms and pig breeds in North Yorkshire; and, last but not least, Pure Maple (www.puremaple.co.uk) sources the best maple syrup for us available in the UK. Here are a few things you need to know about maple syrup:
Our maple syrup has only one ingredient: natural, hand-tapped 100% pure grade 'A' maple syrup. It's sourced from a collective of 2000 farms, often run by families who have tapped their trees for generations. The sugar maple trees don’t just grow anywhere - they are very specific to certain climates and regions. When the tree reaches the ripe old age of 75 years, it starts to yield it’s maple sap. Described as a superfood, it has 50% less calories than honey; it provides zinc, magnesium, calcium and potassium, plus it's packed with plenty anti-oxidants. Go for it!
