The Iconic Wisconsin Spot That’s Been Serving The Most Over-The-Top Pancakes For 60 Years
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and when you’re on vacation, it’s also just part of the tradition. Maybe you don’t normally sit down to a full meal bright and early in the morning, but it’s a time to indulge. When you’re in the Wisconsin Dells, the very best place to head for tasty, ridiculous, amazing, over-the-top, delicious breakfast is Mr. Pancake.
There are all kinds of restaurants in the Dells that we all love and that help define and create our vacation experience. They're the places we go to once a year or every couple of years that trigger our nostalgia and help us know we are really and truly on vacation. Mr. Pancake is one of the most iconic spots and it's where a lot of people start off their vacation with their very first decadent meal.
No one really seems to know why this place is in a Mississippi River-style riverboat, though I suppose it fits in with the Dells of the Wisconsin River.
The food here is over-the-top, super-sized and chock full of flavor. It's decadent and fun and exactly the kind of meal your kids will want to eat on vacation.
Imagine their faces when this pile of whipped cream, fruit and waffle arrives in front of them.
Maybe you wouldn't normally indulge in so much sugar so early in the day, but it's vacation! And your kids will need all that energy to make it through your jam-packed days.
Don't worry, parents - there are some non-sugar-filled options as well, though the serving size does not shrink at all. You'll find all kinds of awesome breakfast options.
But come on, even young-at-heart folks can appreciate and enjoy these amazing, sweet, awesome and oh-so-delicious piles of fruit, sugar, chocolate, whipped cream and more!
Your eyes will definitely bigger than your stomach here, but that's ok. Dig in, eat your fill and know that you made a valiant effort.
Mr. Pancake truly is one of the most delightful spots in all of Wisconsin and you need to make it a part of your new family vacation tradition.
Your kids will remember these meals and talk about them for years to come. You know that the memories and traditions you create during your meals here are the ones your kids will long for as they grow up.
Mr. Pancake is located at 1405 Wisconsin Dells Pkwy, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965
