Kitchen Mouse

Best Gluten-Free Pancakes, August 2015

For lovers of all things bready, a gluten intolerance is tantamount to gastronomic purgatory. At Kitchen Mouse in Highland Park, it needn’t be: The cheerful café offers toothsome, fluffy flapjacks that are deceptively similar to their glutenous counterparts. Unlike other GF cakes that strike the plate with a wallop, these are springy and light, thirstily absorbing rivers of maple syrup. Topped with berries and toasted coconut, the oat, buckwheat, and corn cakes are vegan as well; up the ante with house-made coconut milk whipped cream.
