Oh sure, you can have your fancy pancakes with all the bells, whistles and exotic fruits. But sometimes, you just want good, honest diner pancakes at a place with a massive laminated menu and bottomless coffee refills. In that case, head to the spot next to the railroad tracks where the Oakland Park Kiwanis Club has been meeting once a week since before anybody remembers.

The least expensive pancake on the menu checks in at $17, but you get quality for your money here. Blueberry and corn, andouille and corn, Belgium white chocolate with Madagascar vanilla bean, various fruit combinations with pecan – these cast-iron baked, buttermilk creations are a cut above.
