Harrie’s Pancakes

Harrie’s Pancakes is an institution. They’ve got all kinds of pancakes on the menu – both sweet and savoury options – but, if you’re not in the mood for pancakes, they also serve egg breakfasts, salads, croissants and more. But back to the pancakes – some flavours that really get the drool going are dark chocolate mousse, fig preserve and pecan nuts. And on the savoury side, chicken and mushrooms with cashew nuts, sticky pork with peaches and spring onion. They even have gluten-free pancakes!
