We love the food at Chamier’s Café (apart from the lovely ambience) and the pancakes are no different. A tad pricier than other places, but there is something about this place that makes it all worth it. Get American pancakes in strawberry sauce & ice cream, honey & cinnamon, chocolate chips & chocolate sauce, salted caramel and even cheddar and jalapeno! Talk about indulgence.
This charming farm that also serves as a shop and café offers all things organic. It’s a lovely spot for breakfast and a drive to OMR (if you live in the city).
