The day will be first come first served, so pancake lovers should get there early to avoid disappointment!

Celebrate Shrove Tuesday in style!

“Shrove Tuesday is our favourite day of the year, so we’re excited to be able to celebrate it with people who love pancakes as much as we do. Where the pancakes are started as a pop up on Regent’s Canal in Hackney on Shrove Tuesday in 2015.

Fast forward five years and we now have a thriving restaurant in one of the best areas in London (FIS), serving pancakes to our amazing local die-hards and the many guests who travel especially to seek a moment of pancake bliss. I’m really proud of how far we’ve come – and how we’re heading forward with exciting plans for 2020!” Patricia Trijbits, founder.
