Here are our favorites in the state. 

Sugar Mill Restaurant, DeLeon Springs, FL

Tucked inside the DeLeon Springs State Park, this pancake house is one of Florida’s best kept secrets. This 100-year-old restaurant is set inside a replica of the old sugar mill from 1830. Griddles are found at every table so you can cook your own pancakes to perfection, just the way you like them.

Backwater, Melbourne, FL

This offbeat restaurant is an experience unlike any other. Pancake lovers can purchase batter by the bottle and cook them on their own personal griddle at their table. They offer all the toppings you can imagine, like peanut butter, Nutella, marshmallows, and strawberries, along with whole wheat and gluten-free varieties.
