Ceiling scraping fiascos and barely edible results may be tales of Pancake Days past, but why make 12 February a flippin’ disaster, when you can pay the Pancakes & More team a visit?
The pancake shop, located just inside the clock tower entrance of the Victoria Centre, opens from 8am until 6pm daily (Sunday trading 9am until 5pm). From the sweetest tooth to only savoury will do, the Pancakes & More menu has been catering for all tastes, no matter how unusual, since December 2011. Best selling sweet dishes like the utterly decadent ‘Nutella American’, the good old favourite ‘Traditional Classic’ and the have it your way ‘Sweet Choice’ are to name but a few. With savoury pancakes like ‘Bacon, Cheese and Mushroom’ and ‘Roasted Pepper, Onion, Tomato and Garlic’ proving just as popular, the only problem is making your selection.
True to their name the Pancakes & More team have mastered far more than just their ‘egg-cellent’ pancakes. A variety of pancake alternatives are available including omelettes, waffles, paninis, breakfast options and quiche. As everything is made fresh in store, only ethically sourced Happy Eggs are used. With a 10% student discount available too, you’ll never look back to your own Pancake Day making ways.
With more love put into their pancakes than some of the cheesiest rom-coms Hollywood has to offer, Pancakes & More is simply a crackin’ destination for far more than just Shrove Tuesday. Whether a catch up with friends, impressing on a lunch date or even a quick bite between lectures, the welcoming surroundings, friendly staff and unique menu will have you visiting time and time again. Post Pancake Day blues needn’t be a worry this year though because thanks to Pancakes & More, everyday is a pancake day.
