Pancake Joe

 Joe is a seminarian for the Diocese of Nashville.  Last year he was send to our church for his summer assignment.  When he found out I was Celiac and therefore Gluten Free he offered to come over and make me biscuits and gravy. Gluten Free of course. It was an offer I couldn't refuse.

This summer Joe is in Franklin and found this great pancake restaurant with a Gluten Free menu. It's called The Pfunky Griddle.

It's basically like Korean BBQ, where you cook your own food at your table, except it's pancakes.
You can also order all kinds of fun toppings. We ordered bananas, strawberries, chocolate chips, butter fingers and reese's pieces. 
The reese's pieces were my favorite. Rosie liked the banana with chocolate chips pancakes the best.

After we'd all eaten more than we had room for we then decided to make one huge pancake with all our left over toppings. Joe called it a "cob salad of pancakes".

It was lovely...

until we tried to flip it over.  Then we had what Joe called "scrambled pancake".
All in all it was quit delicious and fun. The coffee was good too. Which is always a plus.  It was work to stay on top of the pancakes so they didn't over cook and it's a little hard to eat while you're cooking AND trying to make sure the kids eat. But such is the life of a mama.
The atmosphere was very cute and the staff was amazingly friendly. They even let us in even though I showed up 15 minutes before closing due to my mad skills at getting lost... yes even with a gps.

I'd probably go back again but I think it would be more fun in the winter when it's a little cooler to be sitting over a hot skillet at your table.  It's great for kids and adults alike, especially with all the fun candy bar toppings.  I would recommend it for a fun something different to try.
