Coconut Pancakes With Bananas And Caramel Sauce

1. The Original Pancake House

Restaurant, American, Vegetarian, Vegan

The Original Pancake House was founded in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. The partners spent many years experimenting with national pancake recipes. Their experience led to the creation of the restaurant’s fabulous menu. Each pancake dish uses 93-score butter, pure whipping cream, fresh Grade AA eggs, hardwheat unbleached flour, and sourdough yeast. The sourdough yeast makes the pancakes light, airy and fine-textured. Your experience at this place won’t be complete unless you order the pancakes with a cup of coffee. At The Original Pancake House they blend, roast, and grind their own coffee.

2. The Asbury

Chef Chris Coleman was inspired by the traditional Southern culinary culture to become a chef. He took his experience to The Asbury becoming executive chef and director. The restaurant celebrates the South’s ingredients, techniques, creativity, and hospitality. When possible, the dishes here are made using ingredients sourced by small local farms, resulting in fresh and delicious meals. The restaurant caters for private dining events and hosts celebrations on the second floor. The Ashbury offers a brunch menu with options such as the sticky biscuits and deviled eggs.

3. Bruegger’s Bagels

Restaurant, American, Fast Food

Bruegger’s Bagels brings New York to Charlotte with its variety of bagels, sandwiches, and soups. The way this restaurant makes its bagels is different. Bagels are kettle boiled and baked in a stone hearth oven. Guests can choose from a variety of toppings including onion and chive, jalapeño, cream cheese or bacon scallion. Aside from bagels, Bruegger’s Bagels offers a diversity of options from garden-fresh salads and hearty soups to desserts and custom-roasted coffee.

4. Café South

Restaurant, Belgian, Vegetarian, American, Vegan

Café South opened in May 2012 and is the best family-owned restaurant in the city. The Kakouras serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. The father and son duo believe each customer should be treated as if they were family. Patrons can come to the restaurant, sit, relax, and sample amazing meals. Some of the featured items on the breakfast menu are the blueberry, chocolate chip or pecan pancakes, Belgian waffles and French toast. They also offer a breakfast special and a country breakfast among other options. Every day they also offer lunch specials.



International House of Pancakes (IHOP) opened its doors to the public in 1958. It started as a family business and continues to serve amazing pancakes and other breakfast items, as well as lunch and dinner. This is a great place for a study break and to come and watch sporting events. The staff always takes time to ensure visitors receive great service. IHOP’s philosophy is that customers should come as they are, savor every minute spent in the establishment, go with the flow, and be able to enjoy breakfast at all hours. Aside from breakfast, customers can try their steak entrees, pastas, tilapia and chicken parmesan.
