Slappy Cakes is a Portland favorite and one of the most fun restaurants that you can visit in SE Portland. With griddles on nearly every table, you can order and make your very own pancakes at your table. They always have buttermilk, chocolate, and vegan batter, but there is also a rotating seasonal flavor to keep you coming back. This time around it was a lemon poppy seed which paired perfectly with our fruit.
I went as a special mom and daughter date, so we ordered all the berries, chocolate chips, and whipped cream. The pancakes are light and fluffy, and the flavor combination was perfect. In the past I have ordered chorizo and goat cheese toppings, so if you are feeling adventurous, be sure to check that out! If you arenâ€™t in the mood for pancakes, they also have all the breakfast staples. Hash, Benedict, Scrambles, Candied Bacon. This place will truly please everyone in the family.
Because I was having a mommy and me date, we ordered some fresh squeezed orange juice. They have multiple juice options, but if you are in the mood for something a little stronger they also have a fantastic cocktail menu. I highly recommend the Slappy Cakes Bloody Mary!
We constantly go back to this restaurant for the fun atmosphere and the yummy food and drinks, have you been to visit yet? Make sure to let us know when you go!
