Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for berry pancake

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for berry pancake can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the fresh berry pancake.

  • Port with your pancake with chocolate sauce

    The strong flavors in Port makes it a great red wine to pair with pancake with chocolate sauce.

  • The perfect complement to bacon and maple syrup pancake


    When ordering bacon and maple syrup pancake, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of americano, a popular coffee.

Factoids

  • Celebrating a love for pancake

    People dedicate September 26 to pancake in The United States. It’s called National Pancake Day!

  • Expensive taste

    The most expensive omelette costs a whopping$1,000! Would you be willing to pay$1,000 for a fancy Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata?

  • A killer pairing

    If you’re gonna be eating crepe, then we’d advise washing it down with a nice breton apple cider.
