I was having a craving for pancakes recently, and the first spot that came into my mind was Denny’s. Yes, Denny’s the restaurant showcased on Breaking Bad. Not only do they give you a free Grand Slam on your birthday, but they have created a series of new menu items, including a variety of scrumptious looking pancakes with various toppings. The nearest one to me was the Bar One one, which was located on Broadway near Burrard. This location had an incredibly sleek interior (just like a bar) with a large number of seats and some very nice and clean washrooms. They also have quite an extensive menu of breakfast and lunch items. I had their Cinnamon Roll Pancake Breakfast, which comes with two eggs, your choice of bacon or sausage (I had sausage) and hashbrowns.
Cinnamon Roll Pancake Breakfast ($13.99):
This consisted of pancakes topped with whipped cream, cinnamon crumb, and cream cheese icing, and comes with eggs, your choice of sausage or bacon (I had sausage) and hashbrowns. The pancakes were of a good size, and were fluffy and light, without too much of a baking soda after taste. The cinnamon crumb provided a nice crunch and sweetness, while the cream cheese icing was sweet with a nice tanginess. The eggs, sausage, and hashbrowns were just standard; nothing to write home about.
I was quite impressed by the food at Denny’s. Their pancakes were scrumptious and quite reasonably priced. The service wasn’t the best, but the staff members were at least friendly. This is a restaurant chain that I would definitely recommend a visit to.
