I love this restaurant! There are pancake griddles in the center of every table and spatulas. You can cook your own pancakes including fruit and cook your own eggs at the table. It's a really fun experience

A couple of my girlfriends and I, while camping in Daytona decided to give the springs and this gem of a restaurant a try. Ah-mazing! Bobbie Jo was our waitress and she made it perfection, she even let us try some of her favorite pancake concoctions which were wonderful despite the fact we were so full we couldn't eat another...

Reviewed this as the Pancake breakfast at Deleon State Park. A wonderful place to take a group in the early morning for breakfast. Fun for kids of all ages. At least I know this grandfather enjoyed the looks on the kiddies faces as they created their own works of art to eat.

DeLeon Springs State Park. A family treat that all will enjoy. Not a gourmet event nor the best spring but the kids love it. They can fix their own pancakes or egg bread, pick their sides and toppings, play under the oaks, learn some history, take a boat ride, take a hike and swim in a safe contained 72 degree... More

Make sure to make time to eat at this very busy restaurant- where you can make your own pancakes. You might want to come when it is cooler temperatures outside because there is no AC or plan to jump in the cold spring water after eating.

Get here early if you don't want to wait. I would recommend avoiding this place during hot days, there is no a/c and each table has a griddle running making it twice as hot inside. The staff is friendly and the food is good though. You cook everything except the meats.

What a nice slice of history to go with your fresh made pancake breakfast. Located in beautiful DeLeon Springs state park. Great breakfast making you own fresh pancakes on a griddle built into your table. We added chocolate chips and bananas to ours. You walk right out the door to the Springs beautiful clear spring water that stays at 72... More

Before leaving to return to CA we enjoyed their do it yourself concept of preparing our breakfast meal over a hot griddle at our own table. Their stone ground flour batter was very tasty.

It is a nice relaxing visit with history. My daughters are 14 and 19, and we enjoy the short trip. The experience is fun once in a while to create own pancakes. The drinks can be expensive if you order orange juice or chocolate milk. (Other drinks are bigger)The glass is tiny. We also saved money by not ordering but... More
