For more than half a century customers have been coming in droves to partake of the Pancake Pantry's dizzying selection of pancakes. The sweet-potato pancakes are the undisputed stars of the menu, but the blueberry, chocolate-chip, and pecan flapjacks have their fans too. And if eggs, bacon, and country ham are more your thing, you won't be disappointed either. Located in the charming Hillsboro Village area near Vanderbilt University, the Pancake Pantry opens at 6am daily. On weekend mornings expect a line out the door if you don't get there by 8. Once you finish your meal, walk it off by exploring the nearby shops, including BookManBookWoman, a used bookstore across the street that's filled from floor to ceiling with more than 100,000 volumes.
