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!
