Whether you’re looking for a sweet or savoury pancake, Blue Star Diner has got you covered. You could get their classic buttermilk pancakes with toppings like Nutella, banana, and cinnamon icing or their triple berry compote with fresh berries, walnuts, and raisin butter. However, if you’re a fan of savoury pancakes like we are, or you’re simply curious to see what it’ll taste like, we recommend getting their fried chicken and pancake which comes with bacon, eggs, gravy, chilli butter, and bourbon maple syrup.
