We hardly ever venture out of the Scarborough-Toronto area. 1. Scarborough is a central spot to find most Chinese foods (that my family will eat). 2. What’s the point? (though I see all the other activities we could be doing.)
This was definitely a special day (or weekend rather) because my parents went on a cruise! And I took the day off from studying just to come here (sort of). We started off, well early enough, leaving the house around 9 A.M.ish. It took us about an hour’s car ride to get to Tanger Outlets in Cookstown. After all the shopping, we finally made it to Hot Stacks Famous Pancakes, located five minutes West of the mall (literally five minutes!).
It’s really family friendly. The restaurant looks so cute! It’s really big and spacious inside. I wish I had taken a panorama from the entrance.
A restaurant that serves (mainly) breakfast items all day (till closing)…I LOVE IT! The menu has plenty to choose from….pancakes, waffles to omelettes.
The premium orange juice wasn’t anything fancy. It just comes with pulp.
We were starving and almost ate everything! I had a hard time choosing what I wanted because I wanted a bit of everything!
D ordered Liver, Bacon and Onions (under the Lunch Clasics) (typical him). It came with a side of chicken rice soup. And the soup was delicious (we never had that before).
A also had a hard time deciding what she wanted. I believe she settled with the Junior Lumberjack (under Breakfast Classics) ; that came with everything: eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon and hash brown.
I ordered the Cinnamon Apple Glazed Waffle. Truly disappointed. The waffle (YES, one waffle) wasn’t crispy and where do I even begin with the glaze? It is honestly apple sauce with powdered cinnamon. I was expecting more, like a cinnamon apple waffle batter? And it wasn’t hot either. Maybe warm? It’s been too long! (Sigh!)
I’m on the edge if you ask me whether or not I would eat here again. I do like the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. I have yet to encounter something similar to this in my area. But the journey here is a bit too long.
