Would you like a paaaaancaaaaaaake? I love pancakes, really.

So a couple weekends ago my friend Melissa had a rental car and she suggested we go somewhere we’d have to drive to for brunch. So of course, I went to the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives page on the Food Network website. Of course! And I found Brownstone Diner and Pancake Factory in Jersey City, which is not far from Manhattan, but not somewhere I would ever venture to without a car. And they’re famouse for, guess what, pancakes! So there we were! And we found a parking spot which was a nice small pleasure back in the driving world and we listened to the radio as they played the same songs over and over. It was awesome.

When we got there, there was a huge long wait but as soon as we put our name in two seats at the bar opened up and the lady asked the waiting and starving crowd if anyone is interested and you betchya we were! I mean, I love sitting at the bar. You get to watch all the action happen, for one… and you get to eat! So we sat on bar stools and I ordered some crazy combo with pancakes, eggs, bacon, and sausage that cost ALL OF NINE DOLLARS! No wonder people live in New Jersey, because there is no way you could get all that for nine dollars in NYC. I couldn’t eat it all and I’m still not over it. Melissa had a ham and cheeseĀ  omelet, cause that’s what she does and we both had just stared and stared at the pancake list.

Now, I guess I’m a purist when it comes to pancakes because I was not interested in walnuts or peanut butter or any sort of fruit compte. I am interested in, however, chocolate chips, but only limited to one pancake and I am also interested in sprinkling sugar on top of my pancake and then squeezing lemon on it which is THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD. Thank you, grandma S, for teaching me that.

Pancakes in New Jersey is fun. And then we went to Target.
