Innovation and creativity are two things that make a restaurant desirable, interesting, and newsworthy. The Pfunky Griddle has it all!
On the first Sunday of our trip to the South, our family and some friends went out for a unique breakfast. The Pfunky Griddle in the Berry Hill area of Nashville is a breakfast and lunch venue that is located in a place that was once a home. What makes this so different from a typical restaurant is that they give you batter, toppings, and a spatula…and you get to make the pancakes on your own! We’ve been to fondue and teppan grills but never a make-your-own breakfast cafe. This was right up my alley, and it was all-you-can-eat, so we decided to try it.
The decor of The Pfunky Griddle was perky and cute, and while we did have to wait, the employees were friendly and patient. Once we were seated inside this cozy joint, I enjoyed the two toppings that I ordered with my batter: peanut butter and banana slices, and the bacon and homemade syrup were both great. They served white, wheat, and gluten-free batter and the toppings to choose from read on and on.
The immense griddle in the middle of the table was hot and cooked the pancakes quickly, but it was safe for everyone and we saw toddlers in there cooking away with their parents. I cooked the bananas into my pancakes and spread the peanut butter on top afterward, and I had at least five mini pancakes. They were yummy and all eight of us enjoyed our meals. I thought it was a cool idea and my dad labeled it as “one of the best breakfasts out we’ve had”. So, if you’re in Nashville, please go ahead and try it. It may not be the most Southern breakfast I’m going to have, but it was a lot of fun and I would definitely suggest it!
