I may be writing this on Shrove Tuesday…but there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy a pancake or two on any day of the year!

And in Bristol, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to places that regularly have pancakes on their menu. Whether it’s a decadent brunch, a snacky sweet treat or a savoury crepe you’re after, our city’s got you covered.

So, without further ado, here’s a run-down of our top five Bristol pancake spots…let us know in the comments if your preference is for somewhere we’ve not included!

Ceres Coffee, Stokes Croft

Inspired by Melbourne’s brunch haunts, Ceres’ focus is on one thing: brunch. All year round you’ll find a stack of pancakes on their menu, but the toppings change with the seasons and with what they’re able to get fresh and locally. As their menu says, “you can always expect something fruity, something creamy and a crunch”.

 

 

Rocotillos (Queens Road and Gloucester Road)

There are two branches of longtime Bristol favourite Rocotillos to choose from, and they’re known not only for their burgers and milkshakes, but their pancakes too. They’ve been around since 1993 (especially impressive given the current rate of restaurant closures in the city), and their pancakes are pretty damn tasty. Enjoy them with sweet or savoury toppings – and if you’re feeling hungry, their Ultimate Pancakes (six pancakes with maple syrup, chocolate sauce, ice cream and cream) should hit the spot…

 

 

Quay St Diner, Quay Street

Taking its menu inspiration from Southern California, Quay St Diner has an impressive brunch menu that boasts everything from steak and eggs to huevos rancheros. And, obviously, pancakes too. It’s up to you which toppings you go for: a choice of blueberries and maple syrup; fresh fruit, yoghurt and maple syrup; or crispy bacon and maple syrup…here’s a pic to whet your appetite…

 

 

At The Well, Cheltenham Road

This laundrette-cum-cafe on Cheltenham Road is known for its Transatlantic Pancakes: a pancake stack piled with buttered mushrooms, streaky bacon, scrambled eggs and a generous drizzle (well, more than a drizzle) of maple syrup. Brunch of champions…

 

 

Sprinkles Gelato, Millennium Promenade

Because sometimes it’s more about keeping the kids happy/the quantity of toppings, right? Sprinkles Gelato on the harbourside don’t just do gelato: the menu is packed with waffles, cookie dough and more – including crepes. There’s a huge number of toppings available, and you can even add one of over 40 flavours of gelato if it takes your fancy, too…
