The 5 best places to get pancakes in Leeds
The big day’s finally here! It’s the one day a year it’s totally acceptable to eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To celebrate we’ve scoured Leeds for our five favourite pancake restaurants. On your marks, get set…book a table!

The Greedy Pig

This is not the first mention The Greedy Pig on North Street has had from us. Located in the Northern Quarter, The Greedy Pig is a welcoming, rustic little café with huge amounts of charm. Their imaginative sandwich and brunch menu is enticing, and their American style, thick pancakes will leave you drooling for more. Served with a helping of butter, maple syrup and thick cut bacon, they’re like a warm hug on a chilly February afternoon.

Mrs Atha’s

If you’re looking for your pancakes with a hot caffeinated brew on the side, look no further than Mrs Atha’s. Cosy and inviting, it’s impossible to not be charmed by their vintage teacups and friendly staff. Their thick and fluffy pancakes, topped with maple syrup, berries and pomegranate seeds, perfectly combine the sweet with the sharp.

The Joint

Based in the back of an old church on Woodhouse Lane, The Joint represents everything that’s perfect about American fast-food. Their thick American style pancakes, smeared with chocolate sauce, maple syrup, whipped cream (or all of the above), are a true glutton’s delight. For a true taste of America, go for the classic candied bacon! The Joint have really outdone themselves this Pancake Day; ALL you can eat pancakes ALL day. And to top off the perfect stack, why not take on their pancake eating challenge (starting from 7pm)? You’ll be in with a chance of winning £50!

Le Chalet

For those less keen on American style pancakes, Le Chalet offers the perfect alternative. All day traditional French crêpes are just the ticket. If you’re craving something savoury, the traditional galette from Normandy should do the trick, served with ham, a fried egg, salmon, mushrooms or chicken. Whether sweet or savoury, try spicing up your Pancake Day with French cider!

The Crepe Hut

Tucked away in a corner of the familiar and cosy Kirkgate Market, ‘The Crepe Hut’ is easy to over-look, but impossible to pass by without being lured in by the aromas of freshly made crêpes. Explore the treasures of Kirkgate Market whilst tucking into these delicacies. Savoury or sweet, the creative fillings will definitely leave you wanting to try another. And if your sweet tooth isn’t satiated, indulge in one of their milkshakes and smoothies.
