PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
A wide variety of fluffy pancakes are on the menu, including the place’s namesake four-grain version, (apple pancake topped with apple-raisin compote and sour cream), Peter Paul stack (trimmed with chocolate & toasted coconut). Bonus: they're all served with a homemade strawberry butter!
The most famous pancakes in the city, as underscored by the long lines of people vying for a stack on any given Sunday. Here, the wild Maine blueberry pancakes are the big draw: They’re light and fluffy, made with egg whites, and accompanied by warm maple butter.
These pancakes are exceptional: hot and fluffy in the center with super crisp edges that are slightly burnt (in the best way possible). The batter is salty-yet-sweet flavor with a richness achieved from a few extra yolks in the batter. They come served with Normandy butter and pure Vermont maple syrup.

The fluffy yet crispy pancakes here are made with sourdough, poured into massive rounds — each order is comprised of a single flapjack — with a bit of seasonal fruit, like sliced apples or pears, added to the bottom of the pan and cooked into the crunchy disks, which are then doused in maple syrup and topped with salted butter.
A beloved neighborhood spot that has been open since 1936, their lengthy selection of flapjacks include a cinnamon roll variety and a sweet potato version. There’s also the Danish pancake, constructed from ricotta and, surprisingly, some parmesan cheese, plus blueberries and lemon zest.
We fell in love with soufflé pancakes in Japan, and lucky for us the popular Japanese pancake chain opened their 1st US location right here in NYC. They are light as air, and have been dubbed “miracle pancakes” for their fluffy texture and soft edges.
The stacks here are so good they serve them in two different batter styles: James Beard (sour cream—they're super-fluffy) or sourdough—topped with bananas and toasted walnuts, tart blueberry sauce, chocolate chips, Nutella with concord grape jam, and/or fried chicken with bourbon maple syrup. Need we say more?
The lemon ricotta pancakes are a must order at Locanda Verde: they are fluffy, tangy, studded with blueberries both inside and out. Their housemade meyer lemon curd makes these stand out among the others.

The stack at this French Bistro are more cakey, each pancake is thick and crispy on the outside, and fluffy and buttery on the inside. Cooked in a cast iron pan and topped with fresh fruit, powdered sugar and local maple syrup.
This 100% vegan restaurant offers six varieties of pancakes, including the "Sunday Morning," topped with vegan fruit loops and sprinkles. For those who prefer something a little simpler, there's a classic hand-sifted pancake with the option to add fruit, chocolate chips, or marshmallows; a cinnamon swirl variety topped with candied pecans, a "Bananarama," and two different cookie-inspired concoctions.
The pancakes here are reminiscent of the ones we grew up eating: thin oversized in diameter, and cooked golden. They come with either chocolate chips or blueberries mixed into the batter; and best of all: served à la mode.
