If you’re on the hunt for a tasty breakfast along the Florida Panhandle, you can’t go wrong with The Pancakery. As its name implies, this local establishment serves piping hot pancakes. Locations exist in both Destin and Panama City Beach — and both are worth visiting when you’re in the area. If you hit up the PCB location, you will be impressed by the convenience and the local charm. 

While classic pancakes are available at The Pancakery, the restaurant’s tastiest offerings are far more unique. If you’re looking for a memorable breakfast, you’ll certainly find it when you order one of the restaurant’s many pancake offerings. Several include generous toppings that are just as tasty as the pancake itself. 

Breakfast is clearly the focus at The Pancakery, but you’re also welcome to stop in for a hearty lunch. You’ll find burgers, wraps, salads, and even stuffed potatoes, all of which are worth trying. As you order, keep in mind that the portions here are sizable. Arrive with an empty stomach or be prepared to bring home leftovers. 

Coffee is often the drink of choice at a breakfast joint such as The Pancakery, and for good reason — what could be more satisfying than a cup of Joe alongside your pancakes? If you require caffeine to get started in the morning, you won’t be disappointed by the constant refills. Otherwise, don’t hesitate to start your day with a mouthwatering mimosa.

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

The Big Apple
This pancake may be named after New York City, but it’s an Emerald Coast favorite. It is topped with apple compote, which makes it especially appealing for lovers of autumn. Feel free to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a small additional charge.

The Red, White & Blue
If you’re feeling patriotic, be sure to order this colorful breakfast, which is loaded with strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream. The berries grant it a fresh flavor that will have you craving more.

Atomic Bomblette
Pancakes are a big deal at The Pancakery, but other tasty breakfast orders are also available. This omelet is as spicy as its name implies. It features hot sausage, jalapeños, onions, mushrooms, and cheese, plus plenty of red and green peppers to add a pop of color. 

Hotsy Burger
Take your usual burger to the next level with a unique version that incorporates both hot sausage and ground beef. This memorable half-pound burger comes with lettuce, tomato, and onions, plus home fries and pickles on the side. Feel free to add bacon, cheese, or mushrooms for a modest additional charge.

Shrimp Over-Stuffed Potatoes
Potatoes might not seem like your go-to dish at a restaurant named after pancakes, but one taste of these, and you’ll quickly realize why they deserve their spot on the menu. Like all over-stuffed potatoes served at The Pancakery, they come loaded with bacon, cheese, butter, sour cream, and green onions.
