I was informed recently that the 17th of December is national Maple Syrup Day in America and Canada. So, I thought I’d show you a cosy joint – in the very British town of York – that really takes the (pan)cake!Brew & Brownie can be found nestled on York’s Museum Street, and is a delicious spot to stop by for any number of handmade tasty treats, teas and coffees.Jars lights, and mismatched chairs come together to create the cosy rustic interior.Stepping inside is welcomingly warm – exactly the kind of break those cold fingers and noses will need from the nippy Winter weather, and Christmas shopping.Now, I’m certainly don’t want to be left behind celebrating any national Maple Syrup Day, and pancakes are a good idea any time of year.
So we ordered the classic ‘American Pancake Stack’…A hot, fluffy stack of American pancakes with maple syrup, crispy bacon and a scattering of blueberries. Trust me – even the photographs don’t do them justice!
Brew & Brownie offer a variety of other delicious pancake options – but you’ll have to grab yourself a taste of the action to find out what they are!This is the perfect place for a catchup over coffee. And considering the time of year – it’s even an opportunity to exchange Christmas presents (over a shared stack of pancakes, of course)!So happy Maple Syrup Day to American and Canadian friends! But that certainly shouldn’t stop anyone else from having a festive helping of pancake cheer too!
