Everyday Eats: Pancakes at Hanna's Gourmet

Try the berry ricotta pancakes at this cozy eatery in University Heights



Hanna knows her way around a pancake. The namesake chef and owner of Hanna's Gourmet, a catering company and cozy restaurant in University Heights, whips up killer cakes in unique flavors like carrot cake, red velvet (both with cream cheese frosting), and berry ricotta. There's also buttermilk and blueberry, if you want to ease into the morning with something more basic.

But really, there's no reason to hold back when you can have something as delicious as three light as air 'cakes studded with melting pools of creamy ricotta, topped with juicy berries and a generous drizzle of chocolate. What's great about these pancakes (besides their note-perfect execution) is the abundance of berries. There are so many that you never have to go a berry-less bite. There's also a pot of warm syrup on the side, full of top-shelf maple goodness that I highly recommend dousing the cakes with. It may seem unnecessary, but the pop of maple really completes the dish. 

Other dessert-for-breakfast items include baguette French toast with mascarpone mousse and lemon curd, plus plenty of savory egg dishes with exotic accents, like Eggs a la Africa (with fava beans and yogurt sauce) and the Omelet a la Romana, a gorgonzola cheese omelet with salami, zucchini, basil, and garlic. Dishes range from $5.50 for a tomato and zucchini breakfast sandwich to just over $10. The berry ricotta pancakes are $10.

Hanna's Gourmet is located at 2864 Adams Ave., in University Heights (map). Breakfast is served Wednesday to Sunday.
