Flippin’ Good Fun

Did somebody say Pancake Day? Arguably one of the best days February brings, next Tuesday the 21st, is Pancake Day! Take a look at these amazing local places you can get yours (all year round, of course!) and some recipes to try at home.

Zig Zag Café

This award-winning creperie café is located on Epsom High street and boasts the most delicate melt-in-the-mouth crepes. *salivating just thinking about them (pictured above).

D’s Coffee House

Amongst the incredible offerings of delicious home-made cakes and speciality blend coffee, this dog-friendly coffee shop on Manor Green Road has its own dedicated Pancake Menu! 

All Things Nice

If a stack of three Amercian-style pancakes with chocolate, caramel sauce or bananas and cream speaks to you, then pop to this retro-cute café in the heart of Ewell village.  

Try at home…

Finally, if you’re looking for a selection of great pancake recipes to make at home, then who other than local private chef, Laura Scott, to show you how it’s done.

Did you know?

Shrove Tuesday, aka pancake day, is a Christian festival that falls on the Tuesday before the beginning of Lent -a period of around six weeks leading up to Easter. It has different names around the world. In Germany, it’s called ‘Fastnacht meaning ‘Eve of the Fast’ while in France and some other parts of the world, the festival is called ‘Mardi Gras’, from the French phrase meaning ‘Fat Tuesday’.
