Omnivore - Pancakes masquerade as desserts

Three breakfast joints


Here are three of the four breakfasts I consumed in two days for my next "Grazing" column. Breakfast has never been very appealing to me and, as a kid, I detested pancakes and waffles. They were too dry to eat without butter and syrup, which made them super-sugary and gooey.

Well, times have changed and I love sugary goo. I had no idea that pancakes and waffles have basically turned into desserts.

Above is the stunning trio of blueberry cobbler pancakes I ate at Buttermilk Kitchen. The batter includes crunchy cinnamon-sugar crumbs. The pancakes are topped with white chocolate cream and fresh blueberries.
