Everything you need to know about this Pancake spot is quite self-explanatory. This is where the pancakes are. Their menu is simple yet it gives plenty of choice at any time of the day. Sweet & savoury, classic & progressive, small or big. Featuring everyone’s favourite buttermilk pancakes coated with lemon and sugar pistachios. This year, WTPA will be extending their opening hours from 7am to midnight and hosting a pop-up in Flat Iron Square!

So make sure you’re first in line for the one off pop-up pancake station in Mews Art Gallery!
6. The Delaunay
If you’re looking for something more traditional, then visit The Delaunay where you can get the best pancakes in the city. This may just be another day at The Delaunay but the traditional pancakes that come in stacks of three, are everyone’s favourite topped with blueberry and crème fraîche.
Vanilla clotted cream, fresh fruit, and a drizzle of maple syrup. What could be better than this? Maybe the fact that they come bottomless! So don’t forget to visit Riding House Café this Shrove Tuesday.
If you happen to be working this Tuesday or can’t make it to any of the best pancake spots. Don’t panic, because The Little Blue Door are extending their Pancake Day to the weekend. They’re putting together a Saturday brunch of bottomless pancakes which naturally, will be also served with bottomless prosecco to go with them.
If you’re near either Dalston or Hammersmith, then make sure you pop into LPB. One of the biggest Breton-style crepe chains in the city. Their savoury galettes are made with buckwheat flour, and come with cheese, ham, egg, smoked salmon, raclette, bacon, stilton and so much more.
If the first thought that pops into your mind when you think of Pancake Day is ‘Franco-Japanese fusion cuisine’, then Social Eating House should be the first stop on your Pancake Day London crawl. They’re serving stacks of Mille Crêpes, with layer upon layer of crêpes sandwiched together with lemon crème pâtissière, plus lemon and Chantilly cream on the top.
