Sweet of the Week: Melissa’s Candy Pancakes at Eggy’s Restaurant

Candy pancakes

Chicago is a city with a sweet tooth, packed with unique pastries and desserts in every neighborhood. I’m a guy with a sweet tooth, so each week I’ll report on a different dessert you need to try. I mean, I’ll eat more than one dessert of course, but only one standout confection gets a shout out.

Often, pancakes toe the line between breakfast and dessert. It all depends on how much syrup and accoutrements you’re willing to shamelessly consume. But when pancakes get pimped out with candy and a heinous amount of whipped cream, things abandon breakfast territory entirely and step into the realm of dessert. Melissa’s candy pancakes at Eggy’s are unabashedly desserty, decorated with enough candy to fill a vending machine. This may not be the best way to start every morning, but now and again we can all use an embarrassing sugar fix.
