In business since 1938, Polly’s Pancake Parlor continues to operate as a family run business. In more recent years they have decided to offer gluten-free pancakes and waffles! All batters are made from scratch which enables the modification. Mixes are never used. These batters are rice flour based and contain dairy (also contain corn, eggs) however, they are willing to make them dairy-free, if needed.
One can customize their pancake with ‘add-ins’ like coconut, various fruits and berries, nuts or even chocolate chips. Walnuts and peanuts are cooked on the shared griddle so be sure to mention any allergies before ordering. The same thing goes for the gluten-free pancakes. The cook will clean the griddle for your order, but cannot guarantee zero contamination. There are plenty of other items on the menu that are naturally gluten-free such as the many egg choices, bacon, sausage, fruits and salads.
