A Hawaii restaurant makes some of the best pancakes in America.
That’s according to a new list by Time Out, which gives high praise to Cinnamon’s Restaurant’s signature guava chiffon pancakes.
This breakfast-food specialist is home to the island’s most creative pancakes (think carrot cake and cinnamon-apple), but it’s the tropical rendition featuring a beloved local fruit that deserves a spot in the pantheon of best pancakes. Smothered in a duo of guava-infused sauces-one creamy, the other delightfully tart-the pile of ethereal buttermilk cakes will have you shouting “ono” at first bite.
Alexander Nam, general manager, Cinnamon’s at the Ilikai, wrote in response to the honor: “Cinnamon’s is proud to represent and showcase the common guava in all its tart, tangy, island-sweet glory!”
Cinnamon’s ranks #8 in the list’s top 15. The restaurant operates two locations on Oahu — Kailua and Waikiki.
