4 Great Pancake Joints in North Wales

4 Great Pancake Joints in North Wales

‘With Shrove Tuesday fast approaching, I thought I take the opportunity to tell you all about my favourite pancake joints in North Wales…’

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if you put on weight or become addicted to pancakes as a result of visiting any of these locations.  If that happens, you’re on your own.  I’ve got my own high-calorie demons to fight.

Dutch Pancake House, Conwy

It even just SOUNDS like the kind of place that produces high-quality cakes, doesn’t it?
.
DPH is located within Conwy Water Garden in Rowen and is a fully licensed premise, offering a staggering 65 different variations of pancake.   I can’t even begin to conjure up that many combinations, but I’d definitely like to try them all.
As well as amazing cakes, TDPH also has the added attraction of being an attraction within another attraction.  Are you still following?  Good.  Also contained within Conwy Water Garden are an Aquatics Centre, nature trail and fishery.
.
So, if you’re looking for a fun day out for all the family AND amazing pancakes, well, you’ve come to the right place.

Hickory’s, Rhos on Sea

I haven’t visited this exact location, but I’ve been known to eat breakfast at the outlet in West Kirby on the Wirral.  Hickory’s is a chain of American BBQ houses and where there’s American food, there are American Pancakes.
.
I love the whole atmosphere in Hickory’s and the staff have always been top notch. There are few things better of a morning than grabbing an outside table (weather permitting, obvs) and enjoying a stack of pancakes, decorated with rashers of bacon and smothered in maple syrup.
.
Note: outside tables also give you the advantage of indulging in some clapping of the dog whose owners are sat at the table next to you.  Bonus points for that.

Dyl’s Pancake Cafe (Cafi Crempog), Porthmadog

This little gem is a fairly new addition to Porthmadog high street.  I’m led to believe it was previously trading at another location, so I’d like to apologise to those people. Your loss is very much our gain.
.
You can eat pancakes at any time of day (possibly the best marketing line ever) and Dyl’s doesn’t just stop there.  It also encourages your type 2 diabetes by serving up some pretty fantastic looking cake, all at great prices.
.
If you, like me, often get dragged to Wilko at the weekend to research sanding machines (true story), may I boldly suggest you get dropped off at Dyl’s instead.  This way, you can indulge in coffee and pancakes while you wait for your husband’s power tower obsession to wane.
.
You’re welcome.

Jack Johnson’s favourite way to start the day…

The Royal Ship Hotel, Dolgellau

OK, so Belgian Waffles aren’t pancakes: this I know.  However, they are every bit as tasty; particularly when served with strawberries and maple syrup in the newly renovated surroundings of the Ship in the centre of Dolgellau.
.
I take care of my real work in Dolgellau during the week. I have, on occasion, found myself veering towards the Ship and it’s hearty waffle plates, even why I’m trying to go in the other direction. It’s like the Bermuda Triangle of Gwynedd.
.
Also, just a short walk away from The Ship is Dylanwad Gwin, which also serves a toffee waffle.  Why not go crazy and have them both?  It’s only Pancake Day once a year!  Besides, you’ve got another 364 days to work off all those extra calories before the next one…
.
Do you have any other recommendations for pancake joints in North Wales?

Hi, I'm Suz. I love travelling (obvs..), dogs, shoes and wine, although not necessarily in that order. I'm originally from Scotland, but now live in Snowdonia in North Wales with my husband and a seriously large shoe collection.
