March 1 marks Pancake Day this year and we plan to eat our weight in pancakes. Have a flippin’ good Pancake Day by enjoying a stack or two of pancakes from some of these Birmingham cafés and restaurants serving everything from American-style to thin, crispy-edged crêpes.
Brunch is well and truly back and Boston Tea Party is here to bring you your brunch fix of pancakes. Enjoy a stack at one of their three Birmingham branches and choose from American pancakes with either smoked bacon, maple syrup and maple butter or blueberry compote and Greek yoghurt. Boston Tea Party also offers delivery, so you can tuck into the luxury breakfast staple in the comfort of your own home.

Down in Digbeth and Bournville you’ll find Stickie Fingers, which is the perfect place for all your dessert needs. From milkshakes and ice cream to doughnuts and pancakes, you can most definitely get your sweet fix. Stickie Fingers offer fluffy American with an array of toppings to choose from, so can always have them as your main course and dessert this Pancake Day. We’ve got our eye on their Jammy Dodger stuffed American style pancakes, their nutty banana pancakes (peanut butter covered pancakes topped with banana), as well as their Black Forest pancakes- chocolate pancakes covered with hot cherries.

3. De Maines
Gorgeously-filled galettes are all the rage in the France, especially on the west coast of the country, and it seems they are a winner at De Maines in Moseley too. This little Birmingham café is offering these pancakes with exciting fillings such as black pudding, onion, egg and fresh tomato, as well as the classic Brittany galette of ham, cheese and egg. De Maines galettes are a great solution for those looking to enjoy Pancake Day with a twist and are more in favour of savoury fillings rather than sweet- plus it’s the perfect option for those following a gluten-free diet.

4. Cherry Reds
Cherry Reds is bringing us their decadent dish just in time for Pancake Day. Decide whether you want three, six or nine thick, fluffy pancakes to devour as well as select from a range of toppings including egg and bacon, lemon and sugar, banana Biscoff or chocolate Oreo. Plus, in true Cherry Reds style you can make it boozy by choosing from their drinks menu which features beer, cocktails, fizz or smoothies that you can add to your pancake order. Cherry Reds are also hosting a pancake palooza on Pancake Day in the form of all-you-can-eat pancakes (buttermilk or vegan), plus some gluten free specials, for a reasonable price of £6.

5. Ju Ju’s
If the possibility of devouring a stack of pancakes isn’t enough motivation to get out for a bite to eat then luckily Ju Ju’s offers a lovely canalside location. Soak up the sun (if it decides to come out) and soak up that maple syrup with fluffy American pancakes at this Birmingham café. Select from banana and salted caramel, homemade berry compote or crispy bacon and syrup and be sure to wash it all down with one of Ju Ju’s boozy brunch cocktails like a Brummie Mary or Chocolate Flat White Martini.
