“Great Service!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I recently took my scout troop to the island. We had Sunday breakfast at the Pancake Cottage. Not only was the food great, but our waitress was so kind and patient. She helped all the scouts order (on their own) and with many of them sharing a meal, she was very accommodating. Great customer service, and if I think of her name, I will add it at a later date.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We ate breakfast here, while there for our honeymoon. The waitress somehow could tell we were newlyweds, which was sweet. Nice place and the food was good

“Peach Pancakes”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Peach pancakes are my favorite. The line is worth the wait. The belgian waffles are also very good. Ask for Terri for a great customer service experience

“Expensive, But Worth the Price!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This restaurant is on the main thoroughfare as you exit from the ferry and is right across the street from the beach.

While this establishment is not big inside, it is quite light and airy and feels very comfy.

It should be noted that the prices here are not cheap, but the food is AMAZING! Fresh and perfectly cooked. Everything tastes homemade and it shows. It was worth every penny.

If you are planning a trip to Avalon, I would definitely recommend stopping in for a bite.

“Good Food & Great People Watching”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

The Pancake Cottage serves good food and as a plus, it is a great location for people watching. Everyone arriving on the channel boats comes by this location. We had a good breakfast both days we went there. The server was very helpful and gave us the latest "dirt" about the changes in Avalon.
