If Bar West’s brunch said “jump,” I’d say “how high?” It is gluten-free heaven! Whether you are gluten-free or not, these Almond Buttermilk Pancakes are just phenomenal. The texture? Cooked just perfectly – fluffy on the inside with a bit of a crisp on the outside. The mixture of the smooth and sweet marionberry preserves with the crunchy toasted and candied almonds is perfection. Then throw the whip on top and BOOM – you’ve got yourself an amazing dish. Although it has many sweet components to it, the pancakes were never too sweet. I left brunch feeling ready to take on the day (maybe that was the weekend coffee talking) and not bogged down by a sugar crash. Excited to try their dinner next.
