Allston’s hung-over college students and working folks know where they have the best chance of finding a good old-fashioned morning-after breakfast. Buttermilk pancakes from the ice-cream specialists at Herrell’s can fill any hurting body right to the top.
These 10-inch flapjacks ain’t the ordinary Sunday-style cakes Mom used to make. For $5.75, breakfast includes two made-from-scratch discs and includes coffee and fruit salad. But what makes these pancakes oh-so-good is the bona fide maple syrup they’re smothered in. Dunk it, dip it, pour it: you can’t go wrong. And if you can finish it all, well, kudos to you.
A little hint from the regulars: ask to trade the coffee and salad for a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice. And for a little variety, try the blueberry or banana pancakes for an additional 75 cents.
Available at Herrell’s Renaissance Café, 155 Brighton Avenue, in Allston. Call (617) 782-9599.
