Topped With Bacon Or Loaded With Nutella: Our Guide To The Fluffiest Pancakes In Pune

Ten-Second Takeaway

Fluffy pancakes are one of the most underrated breakfast foods – in our humble opinion. A bit of butter, syrup, and fruit atop those golden-brown stacks can often be a magical combination. Here are 6 of our favourite places in the city to get fluffy pancakes.

Fat Cat's Cafe

Fat Cat's Cafe

Wanowrie, Pune

Fat Cat’s Cafe in Wanowrie is one of our go-to options for hearty breakfasts and comfort food. On their all-day breakfast menu, they serve two kinds of indulgent pancakes with a ‘Fat Cat’s twist’: cinnamon roll pancakes – buttermilk pancakes swirled with a cinnamon crunch and served with a cream cheese glaze, and hot chocolate pancakes – chocolate pancakes served with a rich chocolate sauce. On special request, they can also make churro pancakes and banoffee-style pancakes – which we’re huge fans of. Remember to wear your stretchy pants!

The Daily All Day

The Daily All Day

Koregaon Park, Pune

The Daily in Koregaon Park serves a special pancake menu every Wednesday evening, from 7.00 pm onwards. The standouts (for us) from this menu of 6 varieties are the ‘Mama’s Fatcakes’ – a divine combination of Nutella, sea salt, chocolate chips, and wild-berry compote; and their ‘tipsy pig’ pancakes, served with bananas and bacon. To wind up ‘Pancake Wednesdays’, The Daily hosts a special ‘Rhythm & Pancakes’ event, with a live music performance from 9.00 pm onwards.

One O Eight Cafe

One O Eight Cafe

Koregaon Park, Pune
One O Eight Cafe just re-located to a new space in Koregaon Park, and are working on adding to their already extensive menu. We love their house-made ricotta pancakes – made with organic whole-wheat flour and eggs, served with fresh seasonal fruit and spiced sugar syrup. They’re fluffy, filling, and oh-so-good. If you’re gluten-free, they even have pancakes made with organic ragi flour and no egg – served with the same toppings.

Yolkshire

Yolkshire

Aundh, Pune

Yolkshire in Aundh is famed for their egg specialities, but don’t discount their sweeter offerings! They serve three types of pancake stacks – one with the classic combo of butter-and-maple syrup; ‘chocoburst’ pancakes served with chocolate sauce, chocolate chips, and whipped cream; and plain, golden-brown fluffy pancakes – with a side of chocolate sauce or maple syrup. You can also add-on extra toppings like fresh fruit, ice cream, etc. (at extra charge) if you really want to make a treat of it.

The French Window Patisserie

The French Window Patisserie

Koregaon Park, Pune

The French Window Patisserie in Koregaon Park makes nachni-oat pancakes, with different toppings. Choose from ‘apple pie’, blueberry-lemon, peanut butter-caramel, banana-Nutella, or chocolate with strawberry/cherry. Whichever combination you choose – it’s sure to be lip-smacking good!

The Flour Works

The Flour Works

Kalyani Nagar, Pune

The Flour Works in Kalyani Nagar is one of our favourite places for classic American-style pancakes. We prefer them plain and fluffy, smothered with butter and honey – but you an also opt to eat them with chocolate syrup, fruit compote, blueberries and lemon mint syrup, Nutella and peanut-cashew brittle, or fresh fruit and honey.
