Skip the DIY pancakes this year.
Where we’d usually be stuffing our faces with fluffy pancakes and a pint in hand at one of Manchester’s best dessert spots, this year, takeaway will have to do. From savoury breakfast style pancakes, to big thick American-style stacks smothered in chocolate, here are the Manchester restaurants saving Shrove Tuesday with takeaway pancakes today.
1. Ezra & Gil
Ezra & Gil is celebrating Pancake Day with two special menu options today – including lemon curd and blueberries and Kinder Bueno flavour.

Ezra & Gil, 20 Hilton St, M1 1FR.
2. Pot Kettle Black
Serving three ‘hefty’ stacks especially for pancake day, Pot Kettle Black is offering streaky bacon with fried egg and maple syrup, raspberry coulis with white chocolate mascarpone and honeycomb with milk chocolate and butterscotch – providing a little something for every palate.
