Massachusetts’ Best Restaurant For Pancakes Has 23 Options
In anticipation of National Pancake Day on September 26, we will spotlight one of the most popular breakfast dishes in the country. The Food Network named the best restaurant for pancakes in each state, and in Massachusetts, this establishment has 23 different options.
“Really, there are no rules when it comes to flapjacks — Pancake Day can happen any time you’re craving a short stack topped with butter and maple syrup,” Travel and Leisure recently explained in a similar feature. In fact, pancakes are not just for breakfast anymore. All types of restaurants or diners serve them for any meal. Furthermore, if you really want to see your kids’ faces light up with excitement, tell them you are making breakfast for dinner.
The Food Network and Travel and Leisure did not consider fast food chains. While McDonald’s hotcakes are also delicious, and IHOP still serves perhaps the most distinctive-tasting plate pancakes in the world, the list focuses on more local establishments.
In Massachusetts, the restaurant recognized for having the best pancakes is a family-friendly establishment that has been open for 20 years. The owner even goes by the nickname of “Pancake Queen.”
Located in Braintree, Kristin’s Breakfast is open seven days per week. The standard pancake section of their menu includes regular items like blueberry, chocolate chip, or banana walnut. However, the specialty section is where you will see this plate reach another level of sweetness. This is where you will find specialty items like coffee cakes or birthday cake pancakes. Food Network recommends the Boston Cream Pie edition, stating, “For a quintessentially Massachusetts order, go for the Boston Cream Pancakes, featuring a river of sweet cream and flowing chocolate.”
In addition to Massachusetts’ best restaurant for pancakes, we have to give an honorable mention to Butler’s Pantry Breakfast in Stowe, Vermont. This New England neighbor was the number one choice in the aforementioned feature by Travel and Leisure. They specifically call out the cheddar jalapeño pancakes as a must-try.
