This pace is a awesome. It had the best french toast we have ever had. I ordered the omelet with 3 pancakes it was great, my wife had the french toast and she said they are the best she has every had. It is a bit pricey but not too bad for a downtown restaurant and lets face it, its... More

In a recent trip to Nashville my wife and I had a chance to have breakfast at the Pancake Pantry. I had heard a lot about it. My Belmont student had told me he had been there and thought it over priced. Undaunted, my wife and I awoke early and headed to the Pantry. It was busy, even at 8... More

After waiting in the cold Sunday morning line around the corner, the Swedish crepes proved to be worth it. Hash browns, bacon and delicious coffee completed a wonderful breakfast

Had to stand in line in the cold rain for a while but figured it was with it with skill the great reviews. I got the loaded hash browns with two buckwheat cakes. Loved the hash browns but the buckwheat pancakes with honey were just good not great. If you are use to brown homemade buckwheat cakes this is not... More

We queued for about half an hour to get in. The line seemed to constantly move and there was free water and coffee during the wait. There was a huge selection of pancakes on offer. I had the sweet potato pancakes which were the best! My boyfriend just had normal pancakes with bacon and was very satisfied with his choice... More

PP is located in the heart of Hillsboro Village, which is short drive outside of Nashville proper and near Vanderbilt University. It has a "best meals" rating for this review due to the quality of the pancakes. Try the sweet potato pancakes, which one would think would be awful, for a delightfully different and awesome dish. The french toast is... More

It was very busy, but worth the wait. Great selection and the food was very good. Close to Vanderbilt.

Visited here after flying to Nashville on early flight hankering for pancakes. They are fabulous pancakes, great varieties, and don't dither on choosing other options because this is their speciality, especially the Santa Fe pancakes. Like others we waited 45 minutes, but there is complimentary coffee to get you through the wait. Watch the back door for VIP drop-ins, though... More

Years ago, when I lived in Nashville, Pancake Pantry was known to be a place where tourists might catch a Sunday morning glimpse of someone famous. I don't know if that still holds but I wouldn't be surprised. What has not changed is that this is still a great venue to get a traditional and plentiful pancake breakfast. And there's... More
