Meals within a Mile – Going Home to Grandma’s

Callie Smith- Sports Editor

Missing home style breakfast? Only a mile from campus awaits Grandma’s Pancake House. You will feel like you are at grandma’s again with large portions and friendly service. 

The restaurant is breakfast-based and opened between the hours of 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. with their busiest times being around brunch at 10 a.m. The house menu consists of fluffy omelets, crepes, waffles and their speciality: pancakes. 

The omelets at Grandma’s Pancake House are as big as you would ever dream. This fluffy egg houses anything you prefer. The vegetarian omelet holds fresh broccoli, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and green peppers. The Santa Fe omelet contains onions, tomatoes, jalapeno and salsa. The Irish omelet carries corned beef hash, potatoes and onions. None of those omelets sound appealing? Maybe the mushroom, ham or freshly sauteed spinach omelet is more your style. 

Grandma’s Pancake House offers a diverse selection of Crepes. Feeling Orient food? Try the Mandarin Crepe with mandarin orange segments dusted with powdered sugar. How about a Kijafa cherry crepe? This crepe is filled with red pitted cherries simmered in Kijafa wine. Worry not, you can still enjoy a classic crepe such as the French Crepe rolled with fresh strawberries. Or the Apple Crepe, filled with apples, pecans, sour cream, Cointreau and cinnamon sugar, served with an apple syrup.

Maybe you prefer waffles? That’s ok, there’s a place for you here too. Grandma’s Pancake House also provides waffles that can be covered in toppings like strawberries, blueberries, apple, pecans, bacon or coconut. 

Finally, the star of the show – pancakes. You name it, it is a pancake at Grandma’s pancake house. From potato pancakes to fruity choices like banana, blueberry, strawberry or Hawaiian to other sweet tastes like chocolate chip, coconut and maple – the possible flavors are endless. There are still a few lunch options available for the brunch crowd. 

Grandma’s Pancake House gives Tech students a homey place to enjoy a tasteful brunch that will not break the bank. With their wide menu, people can come back again and again and enjoy something new each time.
