The Pancakery “Stacks Up” Against The Competition


By Paul Bonnette

The Pancakery PancakesWant to start your day off the right way with a unique breakfast experience? The Pancakery on Panama City Beach has all the right elements to make your day brighter with unique breakfast and lunch options mixed with plenty of Panama City Beach history nestled in a fun, family environment. This diner-style restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and leans in on a cozy and relaxed atmosphere with local artwork and classic Panama City Beach photos adorning the walls. The concept for The Pancakery started when childhood friends from Louisiana decided to open a restaurant on the Emerald Coast after spending numerous vacations in the area. In 2011, The Pancakery opened its doors in Destin, quickly becoming one of Destin’s best breakfast spots before opening its second location on Panama City Beach Parkway.

The Pancakery OmeletteThe Pancakery is well known for its scrumptious breakfast options including Crab Island Omelets, Crabcake Benedict, Atomic Bomblette Omelets, Avocado Toast, and Fresh Fruit Crepes. But let’s be honest: as the name implies, you need to try the multitude of Pancake selections. Using fun names and unique combinations, items such as The Big Apple topped with Apple Compote or The Chocolatier dressed with chocolate syrup poured over a warm stack of chocolate chip pancakes are hard to beat. The hot fluffy pancakes don’t stop there – check the menu other options like Bananas Foster Pancakes, Blueberry Hill, Bacon Love Pancakes and even The Red, White and Blue Pancakes for those feeling extra patriotic in the mornings. Kids get to join in on the fun as well with Happy Face Pancakes, M& M Pancakes, Kids’ French Toast, and more. For those craving a little extra sweetness, I highly recommend trying the signature Chocolate Milk served with whipped cream and chocolate sauce.

The Pancakery BurgerAlthough breakfast is clearly the crowd favorite, The Pancakery offers a wide range of lunch options as well including burgers, salads, sandwiches, wraps and of course, their famous overloaded potatoes including a Grilled Chicken or Shrimp Potato. Lunch combos are also available.

For those wanting to start the weekend early, or perhaps craving a get-together with friends and some adult beverages, not to worry… this place has that too. Mimosas, Mochas, Margaritas, and Marys, Oh my! This place has an extensive drink menu in addition to the traditional coffee, teas, juices, and sodas. Cocktails including Shell Island Iced Tea, Back Beach Riviera, Pancakery Punch, Morning Mules, daiquiris, and beers are all available at their bar, as well as their famous combination of a Pancake Shot (Jameson & Butterscotch Schnapps) and a beer.

Whether you’re craving unique pancake combinations and chocolate milk or perhaps lunch with an overloaded shrimp potato, washed down with your favorite cocktail, do your taste buds a favor and see how The Pancakery ‘stacks up.’
