The Best Pancakes in Toronto

The best pancakes in Toronto are stacked sky-high, fluffy, usually dripping in some kind of sauce or syrup and often served with melty butter, airy whipped cream or both. Though they tend to share these qualities, the city’s yummiest pancakes vary surprisingly in terms of style, toppings, and even regional influence.

Here are the best pancakes in Toronto.
