Pancake Day at The Waffle and Pancake House, Spanish City, Whitley Bay

If you're anything like me you will have "Pancake Day" written in rather large letters in your diary already for tomorrow but if you find yourself without a plan this year, a visit to the Waffle and Pancake House at Spanish City in Whitley Bay might just be the perfect addition to your diary.

Someone recently said to me "Chloe, do you live in Spanish City?" Whilst I do wish that could actually be a thing (wonder if they'd notice if I just made myself a little home under one of the tables?), sadly we don't - we're just there a lot! It's no secret that I'm a big of a fan of Whitley Bay's famous Dome and am really enjoying working my way round all of the different bars and restaurants -  our latest visit to Spanish City took us to The Waffle and Pancake House, just in time for that all important pancake day research!

You'll find The Waffle and Pancake House at the front of Spanish City, its huge windows offering the irresistible temptation to have a nose in whenever you are strolling past. Something I've done every time we've been to Whitley Bay because, if there's one thing I can't resist, it's gazing at plates of pancakes.

Ever keen and always first through the door, Simon and I got ourselves to The Waffle and Pancake House for opening on a beautiful sunny Saturday, bellies growling at the thought of what was to come.  We both love an indulgent sweet breakfast at the weekend and with a coastal walk planned afterwards we were keen to prepare ourselves with bellies full of food.

The menu at The Waffle and Pancake House is pretty simple and made up solely of crepes, waffles and ice-cream sundaes. There are seven different creations to choose from and if one of those don't take your fancy there's also the option to "build your own" waffle and crepe with any three toppings - with plenty of tasty treats on offer including Marshmallows, Salted Caramel Pieces and Honeycomb I think creating your own masterpiece could be a lot of fun and I'm definitely going to going for that option on our next visit.

I knew immediately what I was going to order - the Black Forest Crepe (£4.95) Whipped Cream, Chocolate Ice-Cream and Amarena Cherries. As soon as I see "Black Forest" anything on a menu I am going to order it without question - chocolate and cherries are my favourite dessert combinations. The pancakes served at The Waffle and Pancake House are large crepes rather than American pancake stacks so the perfect size to satisfy your cravings without giving yourself a tummy ache. Definitely far superior to the ones I make myself at home on pancake day, mine arrived with a decent amount of toppings.

Swimming in sauce and sticky cherries a lack of dessert spoons saw me clearing my plate with a tea spoon from my coffee - I know I'm not very classy but there's something rather lovely about finishing your dessert with a baby spoon and there was no way I was letting any of it go to waste.

Simon must have missed the memo about prepping for pancake day and completely ignored my "but Pancake Day" reasoning and opted for the Banoffee Waffle £5.50 - Sliced Bananas, Caramel Fudge, Honeycomb Ice Cream, Toffee Sauce and Whipped Cream. I didn't admit to him at the time (because no one ever wants to admit that their dining partner won!) but I was so jealous of those waffles because they looked so good!

We really enjoyed our first visit to the Waffle and Pancake House at Whitley Bay, it it is the perfect spot for a quick bite when you're at the seaside. They're nothing fancy, but as a little treat with the family or a post coastal hike reward they really do hit the spot and we're looking forward to going back and trying some more.
