Shrove Tuesday never looked so good! Here are the best spots on and around the King’s Road to grab your stacks for a flippin’ fine Pancake Day.
The Ivy Chelsea Garden
Breakfast pancakes or dessert crepes, which will you choose on your visit to The Ivy Chelsea Garden? From their classic Hot Buttermilk Pancakes, topped with fresh berries, Greek yogurt and finishing with a strawberry sauce, to a Crepes Suzette – a showstopper dessert, topped with Chantilly cream, orange sauce, vanilla ice cream and theatrically flambéed at the table; you really will be spoiled at The Ivy Chelsea Garden.
195-7 King’s Road, London SW3 5EQ
Wulf & Lamb
Pancakes but make them plant-based. Grab your stack of American Pancakes from Wulf & Lamb for breakfast and enjoy toppings of maple syrup, mixed berries and vanilla cashew cream. Fiercely kind food, and fiercely fabulous pancakes.
243 Pavilion Road, London SW1X 0BP
My Old Dutch
The true pancake lover will no, and probably be a regular, at My Old Dutch, home to a menu of cornucopia of both sweet and savoury pancakes. With Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Vegan options available, highlights include Smoked Duck (smoked duck breast, red and yellow peppers, spring onions, mushrooms and hoi sin sauce) and Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon (… exactly that!). Sweet favourites include Pear and Cinnamon (with cream or ice cream) and, our favourite, Banana, Nuts and Chocolate Sauce. A mini menu is available for your little ones.

Granger & Co.
If you haven’t tried Granger & Co.’s iconic Ricotta Hotcakes, where have you been? Topped with sliced banana and honeycomb butter, these define Pancake Day heaven. And why not enjoy al fresco, wrap up under a blanket and soak in the atmosphere
237 Pavilion Road, London SW1X 0BP
Don’t be fooled by the trays of beautiful looking cakes in their window, L’ETO have an exceptional brunch offering with a number of Pancake Day perfections. Order Baked Banana and Strawberry Pancakes, complete with housemade strawberry jam and chia seeds for an added nutrition boost, or get to grips with a house-made Crepe, complete with forest berries or Nutella. Yum!
