In Williamsburg, Virginia, a great breakfast starts with pancakes. Since the 1950’s, pancakes have been at the top of the list of Things-to-Do to start your day in the Historic Triangle of Virginia. Pancakes with butter and maple syrup are the standard, but the list of pancakes now includes; buttermilk pancakes, tangy sourdough pancakes or blueberry, chocolate chip, banana, bacon, or apple pancakes along with any combination of these ingredients. Toppings now include; maple syrup, honey, fresh fruit, caramel, peanut butter, Nutella along with any number of flavored syrups. Don’t miss out on this delicious part of the Williamsburg experience.
