You need to try Voula’s pancakes. This unsuspecting cafe will serve you no-frill pancakes that surely hit the spot. Even the Mayor of Flavortown himself, Guy Fieri, approves.

Pick between two or four buttermilk pancakes at Glo’s. Actually, no, don’t pick between the two, just go for four. Glo’s also gives the option of adding meat or fruit for a few extra bucks.

Enjoy Swedish pancakes loaded with lingonberries, Devonshire cream, butter, and powdered sugar at The Egg and Us. If you’re less of a lingonberry fan, go for the lemon ricotta pancakes, they’re delish.

When you first see Pancake Chef, you may make comparisons to a Waffle House. In reality, however, it first opened in 1959 as part of the Clarks’ Restaurant chain and has been dishing up great meals for nearly 60 years.

Location: 15215 Military Road So., Seattle
Phone: 206-431-9411

CJ’s Eatery

Although their menu is impressive, skip it all and head straight to the pancake section. Indulge in four Swedish-style pancakes and add on blueberries, cinnamon sugar baked apple slices, or pecans.

Location: 2619 1st Ave, Seattle
Phone: 206-728-1648
