I’ve been on a bit of a pancake kick lately. Typically my increase in pancake consumption coincides with the end of strawberry season (and, with it, crepe-making season). Luckily, there are lots of places to satisfy cravings for pancakes in San Diego, including the circus-big banana chocolate ‘cakes at The Tractor Room, blueberry and lemon-curd topped ricotta pancakes at Whisknladle, and Snooze, which has nine different options, ranging from “plain ol’ buttermilk” to red velvet.

Bananas and chocolate are a natural pairing, whether you add a few handfuls of chocolate chips to your banana bread or a thick layer of Nutella and some banana slices to a crepe. The combination also works when cooked into a pancake, but few are as expertly executed as the circus-big banana chocolate pancake at The Tractor Room in Hillcrest.
Brunch is a great time to visit Whisknladle, for several reasons: the coffee is free (though dangerously close to the baked goods, which’ll cost ya), parking is no problem (unless I just got especially lucky), and the pancakes are killer.
