This year, Pancake Day lands on Tuesday 28 February. It may seem a bit early to be thinking about how we can celebrate, but after a month of dieting and sticking to our resolutions, we're dying to sample some tasty batter.

Luckily, Hull has an array of eateries that serve delicious pancakes and treats all year round. Why not make an afternoon or evening of it? We won't judge.



Part of a national chain of dessert houses that stretch from Dover to Glasgow, the one opposite Paragon Interchange is a brand new branch.

Also serving a variety of scrumptious ice creams, crepes and waffles, this American-style diner is a great choice for celebrating Pancake Day. Our favourites include their Maple Temptation with fresh strawberry slices, syrup and Belgian white chocolate.

Alternatively, keep it simple with their traditional butter and sugar option, or add some Sicilian zest with drizzles of lemon juice.


Frizza Caffe Gelato

This independent cafe specialises in thick, Italian-style gelato and you can also upgrade to warm pancakes and waffles. Open from 10am until 10pm daily, it's the perfect opportunity to indulge no matter what your schedule.

Choose from a plethora of toppings and sauces, including Ferrero Rocher, Nutella, bananas, strawberries or scoops of moreish ice cream.

Located on the popular shopping thoroughfare of Newland Avenue, it's the ideal spot to have a break whilst exploring this quirky area.


Go Dutch Pancakes

Once a popular pancake place in the city centre, Go Dutch Pancakes have gone mobile. You can find their van and smell its luscious offerings down Jameson Street in Hull, as well as markets across East Yorkshire. So, if you fancy a filling snack after your train journey, Go Dutch!

They pride themselves on using specially imported flour mix from the Netherlands, which gives their recipe a unique European taste.

Combine your batter with sweet or savoury toppings, and stock up on other Dutch favourites, including Frite Saus, Hagelslag and Chocomel.


Le Crepier Papin

This small, blue cafe on Newland Avenue is a great choice if you love French cuisine.

Le Crepier Papin offers a wide range of dishes, from crepes and galette (that's a savoury pancake, if you didn't know already), to baguettes, paninis and burgers. They also serve alcohol, so why not stay there all evening? 

Our favourite is their Champignons à l'ail, a savoury pancake filled with fried mushrooms, onions, spinach and fresh garlic.


The Dancing Goat

A welcoming coffee shop, The Dancing Goat at 554 Beverley Road made this list because they serve American-style pancakes until 11:30am. 

Who can resist a stack of fluffy pancakes topped with crispy bacon and golden syrup? Plus you can wash it all down with one of their indulgent hot chocolates, which come in a range of flavours and too many toppings to list.
