With the rather ugly building that was home to the Dutch Pancake House on the corner of St. Peter’s Square cleared for redevelopment, a Manchester institution has bitten the dust. But few will miss it.
The Dutch Pancake House was almost a great success. Huge plates of savory pancakes followed by huge plates of sweet pancakes. As cheap and simple as pizza.
But the decor seemed unchanged since the 1970s. The menu unimaginative. The giant plates were chipped. The service poor as could be.
Some places survive best in affectionate memory.
