4. Fuwa Fuwa

Fuwa Fuwa is the first restaurant in the UK to offer Japanese-style pancakes, and we are so glad they’re here. Their souffle-style pancakes are light, fluffy and like eating a delicious cloud. Not only are their pancakes a treat for the taste buds, but the cafe itself is a visual delight with its charming pastel interior and cloud-inspired decor. Fuwa Fuwa has two locations in London; Soho and Canary Wharf (we also have virtual offices in Soho and Canary Wharf, so why not book a meeting room and then unwind with some tasty treats after). With a range of sweet options on their menu, there really is something for everyone. So, for pancakes that just can’t be replicated at home, head down to Fuwa Fuwa this Pancake Day.

5. Crème de la Crêpe

Crème de la Crêpe really is a crêperie like no other, they combine the finest flour with the freshest local produce, crafted into delicate crêpes that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are delicious. Nick, the founder, believes in authenticity, and this is why he went to France to learn how to make crêpes from the best of the best. After becoming a crepe connoisseur, Crème de la Crêpe was born, and brought to Covent Garden, London. Whether it’s to indulge in the nostalgic comfort of a well-loved classic pancake or to tantalise your taste buds with their signature ‘Crêpettes’, your visit to Crème de la Crêpe won’t be a forgettable one!
