Our  New Owner  


The next chapter of one of Nashville’s best and most iconic eateries has begun. Second-generation owner David Baldwin has officially handed the reins to Crosby Keltner. The Pancake Pantry has been loved by generations of Nashvillians for great food and. Under Keltner’s new ownership that tradition will continue to happen for the next generation of Nashville regulars and our tourist friends. Baldwin chose Keltner because of their shared management styles and appreciation of what the Pancake Pantry has become after more than 55 years of serving up the best pancakes you can find this side of grandma’s kitchen. So join us for the uncommonly good food, great service, and friendly smiles you’ve always known.


Explore Our History

Founded by Robert Baldwin in 1961, the Pancake Pantry has been a Nashville tradition for generations of families. Baldwin’s son, David, began learning the ropes as a ten-year-old, helping the rest of my family build the business as well. Eventually taking over the business in 1988, David would make frequent trips to the hills of East Tennessee to retrieve the specialty group flours used in our pancakes and waffles. Although David sold the Pancake Pantry in 2017, batter and syrups are still made fresh each day from those secret Baldwin family recipes. 

We strive to keep our traditional past alive, while cultivating innovative ideas to make the Pantry the best. We feel the same way about our customers by cherishing our long-time regulars and always looking forward to meeting our newest visitors.

Here at the Pantry, we guarantee that you will always find the best food, friendliest service, and memorable times. So, please relax and enjoy our hospitality. You are always welcome at our home.
