These Are The Best Pancakes in West Virginia

A stack of big, fluffy pancakes is the perfect way to start your morning. But here in the Mountain State, we don’t just do any regular ol’ pancakes. No, they are either piled high, topped with crazy ingredients or even made with a different kind of flour. Read on to discover our favorite takes on this breakfast specialty:

The Poky Dot

Take a trip to the Poky Dot, a whimsical and quirky restaurant that serves delicious and unique items. Try their buttermilk, white chocolate raspberry, cinnamon roll or blueberry pancakes. If you’re feeling daring, try the “Eat Big Or Go Home” served with four eggs, four strips of bacon, two sausage links, four pancakes, two biscuits and sausage gravy, one slice of ham, two slices of toast and one side of home fries served on a clean garbage can lid. That’s right. Think you can tackle it?

Bright Morning Inn & Restaurant

Head to the charming Bright Morning Inn and Restaurant in Davis for fluffy pancakes and a friendly atmosphere. Each morning, they serve up yummy buttermilk, blueberry, banana walnut and chocolate chip pancakes. But the fan favorites are Kimmy’s special pancakes made with blueberries, walnuts and bananas. Yum.

The Main Dining Room at The Greenbrier

If you’re ever having a craving for some unique yet delicious pancakes you must visit the Main Dining Room at The Greenbrier. There, they make apple pie pancakes served with spiced apples, blueberry and chocolate chip pancakes. Or try the buttermilk pancakes with Greenbrier peaches.

Preston County Buckwheat Festival

In September, head to the Preston County Buckwheat Festival for all things buckwheat. During the Great Depression, buckwheat was grown in rural West Virginia and Preston County as an insurance crop because it has a short growing season and is of good quality. While at the festival, it’s a must that you try the delicious buckwheat cakes! But there will also be various artisans there, a carnival, arts and crafts, live entertainment and even a buckwheat cake eating contest. Mark your calendars!
