Pancake Day

Shrove Tuesday, 5 March, is soon to swoop upon us; the day when foodies can rejoice and indulge in pancakes all day long. Here’s a round-up of Chelsea’s finest pancake offering – you’d batter sit down for these…

Strolling down Pavilion Road, you’ll find Wulf & Lamb – one of London’s finest vegan hubs. Start your morning with the fluffy American pancakes (£9.95), stacked up high, doused in maple syrup and topped with mixed berries and vanilla cashew cream.

Carrying on up one of London’s most beautiful streets is Granger & Co. Their legendary ricotta hotcakes (£12.95) come with a glowing reputation and a delicious accompaniment of banana and honeycomb butter. You’ll go flippin’ crazy for these!

In the heart of Chelsea is Sloane Square, home to Chelsea locals’ favourite hot-spot, Colbert, inspired by the great boulevard cafes in Paris. Sit back, relax and enjoy a feast of a morning with their buttermilk pancakes. Add bacon (£10.75), or add berries (£12.75) or prefer your pancakes straight, have ’em plain (£8.50).

A stones through away is Duke of York Square. The much-loved pancake man from L’Amouse Bouche will be on hand, taking up residency outside Partridges, for the whole of Pancake Day. Grab your crepes on-the-go.

If you’re on a health kick, Farm Girl Chelsea should be top of your destination list. Their buckwheat flour and buttermilk pancakes (£12) will fill any hungry tummy, arriving with maple syrup, berries, candied pistachios and coconut shavings and will leave you guilt free!

However, if health isn’t such concern on this day of indulgence then My Old Dutch is the place for you; pancakes all day, both sweet and savoury. Got a sweet tooth? Try yours topped with banana, nuts and ice cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce (£9.25). Prefer a more savoury option? Order the Eggs Florentine (£10.95); creamed spinach, cheese, topped with baby spinach, red onion and sunny side eggs. Delish!

Further up the King’s Road is one of Chelsea’s instituations, Bluebird. Bask in the sunshine on the terrace at the café and tuck into an unlimited stack of pancakes. Can you think of anything ‘batter’? For just £30, enjoy two hours of bottomless pancakes with a variety of sweet and savoury toppings to accompany bottles Prosecco. More info and booking here.
