The Skinny Pancake was actually the first restaurant I ate at in Burlington, even before we had an apartment secured. I reserved my judgment on whether it was really awesome because it seemed pretty touristy, but after eating there three times, I have to admit that it’s simply delicious. The entire menu is crepes, and you can choose between sweet or savory. I mostly chose savory, and would sometimes mix in a little sweet by adding apple chutney. Everything is organic, local, and made fresh right in front of you.
You have to stand in line to order, and then you take a number and your food is brought to you. My only complaint is that the line is always out the door, so this is not a great restaurant to be in and out of, especially for a Sunday brunch situation. However, the food was always worth the wait.
This place is Vegan friendly, offering a yummy sweet potato shell for your crepe if it’s vegan. It’s also Gluten-free friendly. You can rearrange or remove ingredients as you please – they are very accommodating!
Like most restaurants in Burlington, The Skinny Pancake offers local beer in the form of Vermont microbrews. Some are even on tap! But don’t let that discourage you from getting other drinks – they make a mean bloody mary as well! Definitely a Top 5 restaurant if you’re going to eat somewhere in Burlington, and friends who visited me would agree!
