Where You Can Find The Best Pancakes in Sacramento

Did you know that pancakes are found in nearly every culture?

They're also called flapjacks and griddlecakes, and the batter recipe varies to include ingredients such as buttermilk and sourdough starter.

If you would like to enjoy some pancakes, the best restaurants around our apartments near Sac State include:


Flapjacks is known as Sacramento's number one breakfast and lunch stop. It offers homemade cooking at its finest and encourages diners to bring their appetites. The restaurant opens daily at 6:00 a.m., and the servers provide fast, friendly service. In the kitchen, the chefs make the pancakes from scratch using buttermilk and fresh eggs. Choices include blueberry, cherry, and strawberry. They can be enjoyed with crispy bacon and a tall glass of orange juice.


At Bacon & Butter, the chefs believe in hands-on artisan cooking. They make everything from scratch and shop at local farmers markets for the finest, freshest ingredients. The restaurant is recognized by several publications, and the Sacramento Bee says that the "menu is robust and the food is unlike anything else in town." The pancakes are a customer favorite, and they're topped with maple syrup, diced fruit, and whipped butter.


The Fox & Goose takes everyone back to 1913. Its building was originally the Fuller Paint & Glass Company before becoming the restaurant's home in 1972. The Fox & Goose offers a casual atmosphere, and its elegant private dining room was inspired by Winston Churchill's home in England. The chefs start their day early to prepare some of the best breakfast dishes in the city. The made-to-order pancakes are served with butter and syrup and are best enjoyed with the sausage links.
