“French Toast Pancakes”
The idea of this “French Toast pancake”, as far as I could get from the explanation of the server, is that they make a regular pancake, then dip it in custard and re-cook it in a high-sided skillet. I don’t know if the idea is flawed or just the execution, but I do know that it wasn’t anywhere near as good as it looked on the plate. It was heavy and dense, and I could barely eat one. The fresh fruit was great, though.
We’d gone to this local restaurant because it’s got a reputation for Sunday brunch. Like a couple of other “upscale” places we’ve tried in Salem, though, it’s reach exceeds its grasp. We do love to go out to breakfast on the weekends, but we haven’t been back to this place since this visit in August of 2021.
