Famous Los Angeles pancake spot opens in the West Village
WEST VILLAGE, NY – Pancake lovers rejoice. A popular all-day breakfast restaurant that centers its menu around pancakes recently opened its first location in New York City – and that’s in the West Village.
Breakfast By Salt’s Cure, which has branches in Santa Monica and Los Angeles, opened last week at 27 Morton Street.
The restaurant is best known for its “oatmeal cakes” (pancakes) which it offers in a variety of flavors from an old family recipe from restaurant owner and chef Chris Phelps.
Here is Breakfast By Salt’s Cure’s selection of pancakes: OG (toasted cinnamon sugar), Pink Lady Apple (spicy brown sugar), banana nuts (toasted walnuts), blueberry (flaxseed crumble), chocolate chips ( 60.5% black coverage Tcho), Single cake (any flavor).
All pancakes can also be made gluten free.
Tristan Harrington, the kitchen manager for the new West Village location, told the Gothamist that the 27 Morton Street outpost will serve as New York’s flagship, but the restaurant also plans to open two more restaurants in all five boroughs.
“No syrup. Never,” Harrington told the Gothamist. “That’s how Chris’ grandmother originally served them. The family never ate them with syrup – it doesn’t have to be because they’re a little sweeter than a regular pancake. And there is sugar on top. [and] in all toppings. We are not anti-syrup. I grew up in upstate New York, love maple syrup, but you don’t have to with it. “
There are also menu options other than pancakes, including a breakfast sandwich, eggs, sausage patties, and homemade fries.
The new Breakfast By Salt’s Cure location in the West Village is open daily from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
