The Parlour – USA Meaty Pancakes

Hall of Slime

There’s something truly glorious about a North American breakfast. Dousing pancakes with deliciously gooey syrup is probably the most soothing way to start the day.


Stoke Newington brunch destination The Parlour knows this all too well. Which is why they have a whole section of the menu dedicated to the art of the American pancake. And since they have one with meat on it, well, it’s an easy choice to make (they do have one with Nutella as well… maybe for my next visit).


The USA Meaty comes with a stack of fluffy pancakes, fried egg, some bacon, hash browns, cumberland sausages and a pot of shiny and sticky maple syrup to bathe it all in. This isn’t glamorous, ladies and gentlemen, but it is incredibly caloric and delicious.



So, bid adieu to all those permutations of eggs benedict. There is a choice. And that choice will fill you up and leave you incapacitated for the rest of the day. Exactly what a good brunch should do.


Slimy? It’s greasy meat doused with syrup. It’s slime ON slime.

Satisfying? So much so, that maybe eggs benedict should also come with syrup. Mhhhh…

A pancake tower is a beautiful thing. A tall, intricately designed skyscraper of deliciously doughy round beauties, whose sole sight can inspire grandeur on even the skeptical among us.

I’ll plant my flag on this one

Which is why having a market stall like Benny Buttons building these complex structures of happiness is such a great thing. Specially during these bleak, post-Brexit days, we need any glimmer of hope we can get. And trust me, hope can very much come in pancake tower form.

A look inside the pancakes

Sporting some apples and covered in ever so sticky syrup, this is a treat that has to be tried. So yeah, it might be vegan, but that’s hardly relevant when it comes to pancakes. Be sure to bring a friend along though: otherwise you’ll feel guilty for the foreseeable future…

Doesn’t look that tall from up here


Slimy? Sticky, gooey, slimy… can’t think of any more adjectives

Satisfying? Certainly, you’ll be full with two bites
