Jan 23 2019, 2:52 am

Fluffy and wobbly, Gram Cafe’s ultra-soft, three stack pancakes are seriously popular, and they are coming to Vancouver.

The brand hails from Osaka, Japan, and has over 50 stores in the country, but also operates locations in Hong Kong and Thailand.

In addition to opening an outpost in San Francisco, Gram is planning on opening locations in Downtown Vancouver, Richmond, and Burnaby.

The brand has plans to maintain Japanese authenticity with its BC locations, aiming to stay true to the famous Japanese recipe by using Japanese ingredients.

Gram’s menu is packed with both sweet and savoury pancakes. From salmon and avocado to caramelizedĀ banana, if you want it, this spot has a pancake topped with it.

We’re told the Canadian location will have similarĀ offerings to the existing menu in Asia.

Known for its Signature Premium Pancakes (aka the twerking famous ones, or “fluffiest pancakes in the world” as some call them), this dish is only availableĀ at 11 am, 3 pm, andĀ 6 pm at existing locations.

There are also only 60 orders availableĀ per day. Basically, we’ve got an Uncle Tetsu cheesecake situation but with pancakes.
