Where to eat pancakes in Sussex

If the idea of all that flipping, tossing and slathering in Nutella sounds like crepe, save yourself the bother and eat out for Pancake Day instead. Here's where to get them.

It doesn’t need to be Shrove Tuesday, pancakes are for every day! Here’s where to get ’em.

Nowhere Man, Upper North Street, Brighton

Nowhere Man cafe, retro cafe, Retro Brighton cafe, vintage cafe, Seventies cafe, Seventies style, Seventies decor, Abigail's Party, Brighton Cafes, Best Brighton Cafes

This retro cafe is big on the kitsch and even bigger on the stacks of fluffy American-style pancakes served with maple butter or banana and walnut. Vegan options are available. If you’re after something more substantial and less pudding-like, try one of the bagels instead. Need convincing? Here’s Muddy’s review.

Java and Jazz, Lewes Road, Forest Row

Crepes are on the menu at this independently owned cafe and pizzeria. Buttermilk pancakes are stacked up and layered with your choice of butter, maple syrup and Nutella, rasperries, blueberries, banana and maple syrup, and bacon and maple syrup. We’ll have all three, thanks.

Coppa Club, Brighton

Coppa Club, dining igloos, igloo dining

Come for a coffee, stay all day! Grab yourself a stack of pancakes with maple syrup and berries or maple syrup and bacon at Coppa Club – if you can, scoff them down in one of the cute woodland igloos which are in situ until April. Book online.

Billy’s on the Road, Billingshurst

Go for the full on diner experience at Billy’s –  the kids will love it. Have your pancakes with sides ranging from yoghurt, blueberries and honey (it’s healthy, honest!) to the decadent chocolate spread. All creped out? Have a waffle instead.

Jo & Co, Church Road, Hove

Five buttermilk pancakes? Go on then. Jo & Co are serving ’em up and they look absolutely delicious. Brunch is the speciality here, but there’s also a selection of slow marinated meats, salads and sides on the daytime menu.

Sage Vegan Cafe, High Street, Crawley

This family-run vegan cafe is convinced it’s made ‘the best damn vegan pancakes the high street has ever seen’ and who are we to argue? Choose from chocolate, banana and chocolate chip, or mixed berries, whipped cream and golden syrup. Both are gluten-free.

The Orchard, High Street, Worthing

This absolute gem of a vegan-friendly cute cafe serves pancakes. Choose from a full American-style menu of sweet and savoury treats – we’ve got our eye on this banana and squirty cream combo. There are plenty of dairy and gluten-free options on the menu too.
