Pancakes and Waffles

When I heard there was a new breakfast eatery in town, I just had to check it out. Pancakes and Waffles is located in the City Square Shopping Center on Dillingham Blvd. We decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon at 1 pm - one hour before closing.

When we arrived, every seat was taken. We were crossing our fingers that by the time our food came out (you place your order at the counter and they bring your order out to you), we will have found a table to sit on. Luck was on our side and we found a table minutes before the food arrived.
DH ordered the P & W Special omelette, which was recommended by the cashier as one of the most popular items on the menu. It had ham, portuguese sausage, bacon, tomato, onion, bell pepper, mushroom, potato, cheese, and hollandaise sauce. Basically, it is like the "supreme" omelette. DH liked it, although he said that the pieces of potato were too large. But otherwise, it was good.



My friend ordered the Vinha D'alhos (Portuguese meat dish) plate lunch ($7.95). The fried rice was $1.50 extra. I didn't try this, but DH said it was dry. I sampled some of the fried rice - it was ok but nothing special.
Our other friend ordered the Eggs Benedict ($7.50). I did not try this one either since I am not a big fan of eggs benedict, but my friend seemed to like it.


Here's what I came for - the fried chicken and waffle plate ($7.95). I had read in the paper that the owner got the idea from Roscoe's, a famous restaurant in Los Angeles known for their fried chicken and waffle combos. Luck was again on our side because we got the last order of fried chicken. I asked for the gravy on the side and ended up not even touching it. I like my fried chicken without gravy and my pancakes with just butter and syrup. This plate comes with 3 huge pieces of fried chicken - a generous serving for one person. The fried chicken was moist and crispy. The waffle was also tasty.

The menu at Pancakes and Waffles is extensive - choose between pancakes, omelettes, eggs benedicts, waffles, french toasts, crepes, meat & eggs, sandwiches, burgers, plate lunches, salads, and side orders (fried chicken is $1.95 per piece).
I will definitely head back there soon to try the waffle ice cream, pancakes, and the crepes.

I would have ordered the omelet!!! Fried chicken you can get at KFC, after all...

David and I plan to go there some day soon. Thanks for the review.
