Beautiful stack of pancakes topped with fresh berries, nuts, and syrup at Olympus Northpoint in Albuquerque, New Mexico



Did you know that the world's largest pancake weighed more than a female hippopotamus?

Measuring 49 feet in diameter and weighing more than 6,600 pounds, it was made in Manchester, England, in 1994.

While none of the restaurants near our Albuquerque apartments make pancakes that big, they do offer delicious tall and short stacks that will satisfy your craving. Enjoy a perfect start to your day by visiting one of these eateries:


When the Grove Cafe & Market opened in 2006, it quickly became one of the city's favorite breakfast and lunch spots. Chef Jason Greene honed his skills at restaurants across the country. Today, he partners with New Mexico farmers and artisans to source the finest, freshest ingredients. Chef Greene prepares every dish from scratch and focuses on presentation. Try the Grove pancakes. Made French-style, they feature creme fraiche, local honey, fresh fruit, and maple syrup.


Friends Jessica Tafoya and Brittany Bilek met while working at a Wyoming restaurant. Their passion for exceptional food and unparalleled service made them the perfect team. They now call Albuquerque home and own the Sunnyside Up Cafe. The waitstaff knows regulars by name, and offer food and beverage pairings that aren't soon forgotten. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare the meals to order. Enjoy the apple cinnamon pancakes featuring apple slices and crunchy granola baked into a whole-wheat batter.


Offering Southwest-style cuisine with a twist, it's no wonder that the Central Grill draws a crowd. The restaurant serves the best pancakes and burgers in town, along with some of the finest coffee. Guests can dine inside or on the covered patio featuring colorful flowers and street views. For breakfast, try the Crazy Good pancakes. They're topped with melted brie cheese, maple syrup, and the choice of blueberries or apples.
