I am so excited to share this with you, and have a feeling I might be alone in this immense regard for pancakes, but I shall persist.
really good brunch food in dempsey (though I fancy this might depend on what you order). this post should be short, unless I go into an unintentional but completely heartfelt essay on the beauty of pancakes for breakfast. I have been to barracks a couple of times now, for brunch/lunch/dinner, and I’ve basically always had a good time – with the only complain being price.
but this time, I made the prodigious choice of the seven-layer pancakes from the menu. no idea how I didn’t see it before, but I couldn’t then possibly resist the promises of seven layers of pancakes sandwiching nutella, nuts and dried fruit. just have a look at all that gorgeousness – it really was just a whole array of my absolutely-favourite things on a plate. we also ordered an eggs benedict on the side for variety (but I think primarily not to appear too fatty by having another plate of pancakes).
I’m not sure what I can say that the photo doesn’t, but really – an amazing amount of dried fruit and nuts were served on the side of what I had already thought to be a generous amount between the pancakes. the pancakes were satisfying hearty, not dense as they sometimes can be, and although you could barely taste the nutella, I’m sure you would be able to tell if it wasn’t there. I really am still dreaming of eating this again while I type all this.
just in case you were interested (I wouldn’t know why though in light of the pancakes), the eggs benedict were a pretty good rendition, with flowy orange yolk encased in a poached egg atop spinach, ham, and a good toasted crumpet.
I truly loved this, and while I wanted to complain that it feels a ripoff that we got only pancake quarters instead of whole ones, honesty bids me to admit that might have been a tad too much of a good thing. go order this if you ever get to barracks, keep it alive on the menu!
