National Pancake Week Guide

On the seventh day, God created brunch, and it was good. Not only was humankind blessed with drinking mimosas mid-day on a Sunday, but we were also blessed with the creation of fluffy little clouds of goodness we call the pancake.

You may celebrate the invention of the pancake every weekend, but now the little morsel of deliciousness has a whole week dedicated to its syrupy, butter-smothered euphoria. What better way to brunch than with a mimosa in hand and gourmet pancakes on your plate? There really isn’t a better way.

Can I get an AMEN?

Lafayette at the Hay Adams Hotel

The Lafayette at the Hay Adams Hotel is dishing up hotcakes in a style of your choosing. You can select blueberry pancakes, pecan pancakes, or good ole fashioned plain pancakes accompanied by fresh berries. These hotcakes made quite the impression with the Bitches (I mean they were the runner up for Best Bites pancakes for 2012), by being the perfect balance of crispy on the outside and moist on the inside with blueberries littered throughout. Judge the brunch for yourself, and read the Lafayette at the Hay Adams Hotel Bitching.
