As if breakfast couldn’t get any more fun, it just did. Slappy Cakes is an international restaurant chain that started in our very own Portland, Oregon. This individualistic restaurant has been featured on The Cooking Channel, Rachel Ray, Woman’s Day Magazine, and recognized as “America’s Best” by Food Network’s Alton Brown as one of America’s top ten destinations. Pictured in this post is the Maui, Hawaii location.
In the center of every table, you’ll find a griddle to make your own pancakes. The batter is served in a squirt bottle, making it easy for those creative individuals to shine. Some of their favorite designs are shown on a slideshow in the waiting area near the front of the restaurant.
Choices of “fixins” such as macadamia nuts, kula strawberries and papaya are just a few from the list of 20 fresh and local ingredients you can add to your pancakes.
Slappy Cakes also gives you the option of different toppings such as Lemon Curd, Lavender Honey, Coconut Peanut Butter and more. And if that wasn’t cool enough, you can even choose your batter from buttermilk, whole grain, vegan/gluten-free, seasonal and chocolate.
Want a funky drink to go with your super fun breakfast? They’ve got that too. Above is the Lavender 75 made of gin, lavender simple syrup, lemon juice and bubbly (delicious) placed next to their french press coffee.
I absolutely love this place. Such a fun idea! The service was great and the atmosphere was so upbeat and vibrant that even the most anti-morning person there (aka me) enjoyed it!
Slappy Cakes gets a 9.5/10.
