I will have to say that I think that pancakes are probably the best type of breakfast item on any given day of the week. I am one who could eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. Pancakes can be eaten any season of the year and you can add your favorite seasonal fruit for a different look and taste. Seen here in the picture was breakfast at a Bed & Breakfast up in Northern Vermont over Rob and my one year wedding anniversary in 2008. These pancakes were amazing!

This morning, Rob, my father-in-law, and I went out for breakfast. We went out to Chips Family Restaurant which is know for their amazing pancakes.  This place has close to 40 different flavors of pancakes ranging from your normal plain buttermilk pancakes to exotic flavors of Coconut Crunch pancakes that consist of chocolate chips, cocunuts, and almonds all mixed into the buttermilk pancake batter. Rob and I tend to eat at this place once every couple of months. There is normally a line on Saturday and Sunday mornings, but the food is worth the wait. The line moves pretty fast, too. My favorite are the Birthday Pancakes. It comes with sugar colored sprinkles inside the pancakes along with whipped creme and a cherry. I normally ask for no whipped creme and cherry though. Other flavors I have had are the chocolate chip pancakes, and today I tried the M&M pancakes. These are good...but I almost find that the chocolate is too much. Now those who know me, I can not get enough chocolate..but there is something where I can't have too much chocolate within my pancakes. Rob has had the German Apple Pancakes which consist of fresh sliced apples cooked inside five buttermilk pancakes, topped with cinnamon and powdered sugar and is served with a raspberry purée sauce. Yes....a diabetic shock waiting to happen!

I know that this is a place that Rob and I will miss when we move away from Connecticut this summer. If you are ever in the Orange, Connecticut area on vacation, Chips is definite stop for any person for a good meal!! You will not be sorry if you stop!


  1. I wonder if that is from the same chain as the one I went to in Florida? Are they a chain? Either way the pancakes sound amazing. I think I may have to have some today:)

  2. I do not think that they are a chain. I will definitely miss them when I move. There is a pancake chain in Eastern TN that I need to try the next time I get down to Gatlinburg, TN.

  3. Now, I'm hungry! :) My favorite ever pancakes are from a place in Gatlinburg TN and they are chocolate chip pancakes.
