Shrove Tuesday is coming up on March 4th. Pancakes are feel-good food; an easily concocted sliver of lovely, sugary stodge that come with the added bonus of being flippable. We may not rival New Orleans’ Mardi Gras but here in Urmston we don’t do too badly on everyone’s favourite Tuesday.
Gloucester Road boasts its very own Pancake Corner, where you can gorge yourself on at least twenty different fillings. Mama Maria’s on Flixton Road are offering free pancakes (with a main course) but if you feel like trying something a wee bit different visit Lily’s at Eden for a taste of these delightfully special cakes from Sugar Bun Sisters.
These lavishly iced cupcakes are topped with the cutest mini pancakes. Choose (Choose? How is this possible?) between chocolate with Nutella or vanilla with lemon.
Other Urmston independents serving freshly flipped pancakes on the day include Darby’s on Flixton Road.
If you run an independent cafe in Urmston and you’d like to be included in this post, please get in touch. I try to include as many Urmston indpendents and any that are left out are not deliberately excluded. This website is for all independent Urmston businesses and is completely free.
