Slappy Cakes, Portland Oregon


If you’re looking to be creative in the kitchen but don’t want to deal with the prep or mess, head to Slappy Cakes in Portland, Oregon for a fun morning meal.  Their specialty is do-it-yourself pancakes, but there are other menu items that are available.


On the weekends, you’ll want to get there right before they open to avoid a long wait.   These were the eager diners about fifteen minutes prior to opening.  There is street parking available but could be difficult to find.

The menu includes several batters to choose from, including gluten free and vegan pancake batter.  Oh, and don’t forget to order toppings.  Lots of toppings, both savory and sweet for you to create your ultimate breakfast masterpiece.  When your ingredients arrive, it’s time to get cookin’!!!

Tip:  After you pour your batter, don’t be in a hurry to flip.  Your patience will be rewarded with a beautiful “whole” pancake.

My favorite was a buttermilk pancake with their house made chocolate-hazelnut spread (aka Nutella).











If you’re not the DIY cook, no worries.  The kitchen will cook for you.  There is a full breakfast menu available.  This place is great.  Excellent for children and families.  Enjoy Slappy Cakes for a fun and unique dining experience.
