A Nashville tradition began in 1961 when my father, Robert Baldwin, opened The Pancake Pantry. The idea was to build reputation and menu around a variety of uncommonly good pancakes. Equally important was his desire to develop a friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere which would keep customers coming back time and time again. In 1978, I became partners with my dad and eventually bought the restaurant from him in 1988.
Today The Pancake Pantry is part of the vibrant and growing neighborhood of Hillsboro Village. Please visit some of our friends in the village either before or after you come see us for breakfast or lunch.
