I live on 4th Ave and 10th street, and I'm more than happy to walk a dozen blocks for good food.
I love pancakes, but with one caveat: due to blood sugar reasons, I should only eat buckwheat, oatbran, or whole wheat pancakes (though I do cheat occasionally for buttermilk). And no matter what, I have to eat the pancakes with plain (unsweetened) yogurt... Any suggestions?
I had an excellent plate of buttermilk pancakes at Stone Park with a side of Fage greek yogurt-- but it's hard to justify spending $18+ on a plate of pancakes.
All suggestions welcome (historically I've been a huge fan of the pancakes at Polonia in the East Village, but alas I don't live there anymore)
happy fourth and happy eating!
