Hotcakes in the house! National Pancake Week takes places February 19-25 this year and you know that you’re yearning to eat a nice stack of them. So bring your appetite and head to these great diners in Alexandria where you can honor this fun tradition over a scrumptious breakfast
*Barnside Diner. Locals like this Northern Virginia favorite known for its speedy service and straight-forward food. The pancake portions are large, and you can be paired with other morning staples such as eggs, bacon, hash browns and a nice cup of hot coffee. Instead of butter and syrup, the flapjacks are served with cream cheese
*Waffle Shop. Open 24 hours, seven days a week, this go-to spot for cheap grub on Mount Vernon Avenue offers an extensive menu selection, including what do you know—pancakes. Make sure that someone in your party orders the restaurant’s specialty–waffles, which apparently are made from an age-old family recipe.
*Bob & Edith’s Diner. Since opening in 1969, this family-owned establishment has been dishing out all types of pancakes—healthy multi-grain, golden brown, chocolate chip and fresh blueberry. Everything here is fresh and cooked to order just how you like it.
