So fun and relaxing

We love taking the kids to the Old Spanish Sugar Mill! Cooking delicious pancakes at the table is so much fun for everyone. This trip was to celebrate our Anniversary and we had a great time.

A special place for us, no other place to compare it to. Food is very good, coffee too...service is fine, but you may have to wait to be seated. Come with a patient attitude, and a swimsuit!

This past weekend we visited the DeLeon Springs while on vacation. What a hidden gem! Not only did we go to try the Old Spanish Sugar Mill but the kids got to swim and play on the playground while we waited for our table to be ready. Be prepared for the upwards of 2 hour wait to eat but it... More

Had a fun Saturday morning at the Mill. A 45 minute wait gave us time to take a dip in the Fountain of Youth before we settled in to grill our own pancakes. You can cook your own eggs too if you want at this do it yourself pancake house. Lots of fun and a great break from your run... More

You have to pay $4.00 per vehicle to get into De Leon Springs State Park which houses the restaurant. You get to make the pancakes on a griddle built into the table. You can choose toppings and syrups as well as sides. I enjoyed the food, service was good but there is no A/C in the building so at 2pm... More

The Old Spanish Sugar Mill is very cute. It is a historical building and small restaurant. It is a novelty experience--you cook your own pancakes, eggs, french toast on the table in front of you. The staff was friendly. But we did wait for two and a half hours to get a seat and I don't think there is air... More

This was a unique and enjoyable dining experience. The restaurant features all you can eat make your own pancakes. If you order eggs, you get to cook those right at your table as well. Once you are seated, your pleasant and friendly server will explain all you need to know to enjoy your meal. The table has a griddle in... More

Came on a Sunday to this wonderful place. Had breakfast cooking our pancakes on the griddle on our table. Service was friendly, establishment was crowded which is expected. The food was good. Small milk is really small so you might want to order a large. The only issue we had is the gratuity is already added into your bill. 18%..... More

Beautiful natural setting at Springs lake. Swam first & then headed in to The Old Spanish Sugar Mill. Great fun for all making your own pancakes at hot griddle inset into your table. Lots of toppings to try. We also fried some eggs on our griddle. Kids & parents thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would highly recommend this unique place &... More
