Pancakes with strawberries and blueberries on a blue plate

Start Your Morning with the Best Pancakes in Dallas

Did you know that the pancakes originated about 12,000 years ago?

They featured ground grain and nuts mixed with milk or water.

Today, this morning favorite is served around the world, and the recipes vary by culture. If you would like to enjoy a stack of pancakes, head to one of the following restaurants near our apartments in downtown Dallas where you’ll find everything from buttermilk to chocolate chip:


Ellen’s opened in 2012 and welcomed its one-millionth customer on July 3rd, 2019. It’s one of the city’s most popular restaurants and serves homemade comfort food inspired by the rich tradition of the South. The chefs cook using the finest ingredients. They love the idea of breakfast for dinner and offer something for every palate. Enjoy the buttermilk pancakes with a side of hash browns or crispy bacon. 

Dream Cafe 

With everything from brunch to booze, it’s no wonder that the Dream Cafe is one of the most visited restaurants in town. The eatery started from humble beginnings with only six tables. A feature in D Magazine drew customers, and soon the cafe needed a larger space. Today, the vibe is an eclectic mix of Bohemian and down-home. It comes complete with murals, wood accents, and picture windows. For breakfast, try the fluffy ricotta pancakes topped with creme fraiche, powdered sugar, and fresh strawberries. 

Original Pancake House 

The Original Pancake House has been offering from-scratch fare in DFW since 1987. The chefs start their day early. They never use a microwave or frozen ingredients, and customers are surprised by the sweetness of their freshly squeezed orange juice. The restaurant is known for its apple pancakes. After baking to perfection, they’re topped with sauteed Granny Smith apples and a Sinkiang cinnamon glaze.

These are just three of the restaurants near our Dallas high rise apartments. If you’re thinking about calling our community home, please contact us. We will arrange a personalized showing so you can see all we have to offer.
