Cafe Luluc: The Best Pancakes in the City 10-23-2010


Location: 214 Smith St. BK
Time: 1:30pm
People: MA, ES and myself

Feelings: Every time I mentioned to the BoCoCa locals about a somewhat mediocre brunch experience at Bar Tabac, they would cringe and tell me to go to Luluc instead. It seems Luluc has been overshadowed by the atmosphere of Tabac. After this particular brunch experience at Luluc, I will admit that the locals know what they are talking about.

There are three words to describe about Luluc: Pancakes, pancakes, pancakes ($8). If you love pancakes so much that you are considering starting a blog called, "Pancake Porno" or "Pancakes & Plebeians," you must run to Cafe Luluc. I foolishly did not order their famous pancakes, but ES did along with a side of bacon. I used to think Clinton Street Baking Co had the best pancakes in the city, but I completely changed my mind after having a bite of these flavorful flapjacks. The edges of the cakes were crispy while inside was quite warm and fluffy. They were sweet and moist, and they really tasted like a dream full of buttery happiness. These utterly decadent pancakes should really be considered as a dessert or anti-depressant. I also liked that they were very circular with the perfect thickness, which satisfied my OCD tendencies.

My Goat Cheese and Spinach Omelet ($8) was also well prepared, and I enjoyed the extra creaminess of the goat cheese. MA also enjoyed her Pressed Vegetable Sandwich ($9), but let's be honest. We both wanted to gorge on the pancakes.

The service was also courteous without any attitude or aloofness, and the coffee was somewhat decent as well. I wish they would accept credit cards, but that is the price you would have to pay for the best pancakes in the city.

Whoa! Their pancakes are better than Clinton Sts? This I have to try. I hold the blueberry pancakes at Clinton St. on a very high pedestal.

I know. I love Clinton Sts blueberry pancakes too! So I was amazed how great their pancakes were.
