Looking for the best pancakes in Maine - preferably near the Mid Coast, but I'm willing to venture inland or Down East for a really outstanding version. The southern part of the coast closer to NH is fine, too, since I have to pass through that region anyway.
I'm not seeking anything fancy or exotic: just simple, classic breakfast pancakes with at least somewhat crispy edges and a fluffy, non-spongy interior. Preferably not made with a generic powder mix.
I know this must sound like an odd request, since pancakes are served everywhere. But you'd be surprised how tough it is to find a truly top-notch rendition of such an "ordinary" dish where I live - a large, diverse, cosmopolitan city where almost any cuisine from around the world is available, but down-home traditional American food isn't always up to par.
Any style of eatery is fine: cafes, roadside diners, bed & breakfast inns, etc.
