If you want pancakes or a lumberjack breakfast located on the main strip in Gatlinburg, you probably can't do better than The Pancake Pantry. Efficient and friendly staff with a full menu of breakfast choices. They don't take credit cards but provide an ATM at the cashier desk.

I absolutely love love love this place! The food is amazing. Their crepes are to die for. I come here once every year. The reason I gave it 4/5 is for 2 reasons. 1- Like other reviewers have said, it is cash only which is not very convenient. It is 2015/2016 after all. 2- There was a host there that... More

Go early, or wait in line. The breakfast is wonderful--if you like pancakes or waffles. I also judge a place on the coffee, and this did not disappoint. I had the bacon waffles, and they were delicious. I would give an excellent, except for the fact that the menu is a little pricier than a lot of breakfast places, and... More

The chocolate chip pancakes are to die for. My wife got the sweet potato pancakes, and they came with an excellent cinnamon syrup. You will probably have to wait to get in, but the wait is worth it. They only take cash, no cards. Also, they give you five pancakes, so side items are not needed to get full.

We were told by a waitress at another restaurant that the Pancake Pantry is a Gatlinburg staple, so we decided to give it a try. They pack tables so tight in this place that you have to follow snaking path to get to your table. They have a wide variety of different pancakes, crepes, and omelets. Pancakes and crepes were...
