Do you prefer homemade food? Love small cozy places? You appreciate open and easy atmosphere where you feel like at home? Welcome to Mr.Pancake!
There are two Mr. Pancake restaurants in Munich. The first one is in the center of Munich, Germany on Gabelsbergerstr. 34. It is not big, but very hospitable and authentic.
The second one in between famous English Garden and the Isar river. It is much bigger, but also very hospitable and friendly.
Our guests are true admirers of hot and healthy breakfast, nutritious lunch, and dinner. What can be better than a hot breakfast that is being cooked specially for you?
Our main dish is authentic handmade American pancakes that are a rarity even in the States nowadays. Other pancakes don’t belong to a certain country. We present national pancakes ideas of 12 countries. The idea of Mr.Pancake International Menu comes from our love to people of all nations. Here you can find also French crepe, Dutch pannenkoeken, Swedish raggmunk, Polish nalesniki, Czech palatschinken, Spanish filloas, Icelandic Pönnukaka, Finish lettu, Russian olady, German Pfannkuchen; sweet and savory pancakes, thick and thin, vegetarian and with meat, and many other offers.
Before we started our Pancake House we were just a young family that loved to travel around the world: Prag, Warsaw, Moscow, Amsterdam, Kopenhagen. As tourists, we were interested in good-quality and nutritious meal, not expensive, and not to wait long. To tell the truth, it was not easy to find what we wanted. Fast food like famous fast food chains – not for us. Expensive restaurants where you have to spend an hour or more… not the best choice. We also were not interested in places focused on alcohol.
We think there are many people with the same meal interests. We decided to open a place that combines all our expectations: with homemade and cooked to order dishes like in a regular restaurant, not expensive and pretty fast like in a fast food restaurant, friendly like at your friends´ home. Now it exists. Mr. Pancake. Welcome to taste!
We wanted something international. Something you can find in the most cultures. We wanted something creative. And something very friendly. Pancakes can connect the world. When it is not just one type, but the union of tastes and forms, it sounds interesting. It is like a discovery when you are in a pancakes world. We do love people of different cultures and so happy to cook for all of you.
Pancakes can have not only nutritional value for your body but also for the mind. Alex and I are researchers. We do love to discover new cultures, customs, and traditions. Our dream and our goal are to explore all the pancakes are being made in the world in their best recipes. How we do this? A percentage of our income we invest in our Pancake Trips. First, before our trip to a certain country, we learn about its pancake: history, recipes, form, places that serve them. We connect with people in villages or small towns who could show us the traditional way to cook their pancakes. We visit them, learn, study their product such as milk, flour, eggs, butter, look for differences and similarities, study special tricks and secrets. We also visit places that serve national pancakes. Sometimes we find something we didn´t expect. For example, we tried french crepes in more than 10 places in France. But the best french Crêpe Suzette we found in a French restaurant in Moscow.
We travel, learn, explore, taste, try, and then bring the best to our pancake house in Munich. It is more than food. It’s adventuring. It´s a part of life.
With love to our guests,
Oly and Alex Wagner, the founders.
