The only question is what is a pancake. Let see the internet definitions.
What Are Mini Pancakes?
According to Google, Pancake is a thin, flat cake of batter, fried on both sides in a pan and typically rolled up with a sweet or savory filling.
According to Wikipedia, A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk, and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter.
My definition, Pancake is a small spongy kind of cookie carefully baked on both sides and garnished with chocolate sauces. Served hot! This is exactly what I saw when we visited Mr.Nirmal at his shop. Look at the image below.

We Asked about the Mini Pancake Rates
While looking at their menu I was tempted to ask about the price. My concern was the bill amount. How much will it cost to an average customer visiting with his family or friends?
The short answer by Mr.Nirmal is – Lowest.
He said, if you look closely at the rate card you will notice we are offering a premium item at a very low cost. There may be other food joints offering mini pancakes. But ours is different not only taste-wise but also in price.
Further, the ambiance they provide is rich and classy. Moreover, when you go for premium products where it is worth spending then money becomes secondary. And by the way, you have our coupon code. So, relax and enjoy your mini pancakes. Why worry about the bill?
PS: Their mini pancakes start with Rs.100.
The Pancake Story is a Crowd Puller
We surtis need a reason to eat out. This is why Starbucks couldn’t resist opening an outlet in Surat. The same is with the mini pancake shop here. It’s a major crowd puller. From small babies to senior citizens, everyone visits the shop. They keep coming back again and again once they taste it.
Above all the mini pancake shop here in Vesu, Surat is a major attraction of the teenage crowd. They flood the shop heavily in the evening and weekends. Party, young people, music, mellow flavors, selfies, Instagram uploads are a regular affair at the pancake story.
School kids literally drag their mums to the shop to order their favorite mini pancake. These kids have memorized the whole menu. They know which flavor is left out to try. Mums just sit here, watch kids enjoy their mini pancakes and pay bills, said Mr.Nirmal. That’s funny!
served hot and happening

Substitute for Traditional Sweets
The idea is lip-smacking.
Mini Pancakes can replace traditional sweets in family functions like a wedding. It’s the next level dessert. We are traditionally programmed to offer deserts in marriage functions. That’s pretty normal and everyone does that. But you can try pancakes instead of sweets or deserts in weedings. It’s unique and I am sure your guest will appreciate it.
Interesting Pancake Incident
Once Mr.Nimal got an order to serve pancake at a private function. It was a friend’s party and the kids of the family decided to try something unique. They ordered different varieties of pancakes. Mr.Nirmal was at the serving desk waiting for the guests to come and enjoy a totally new dessert. The guest were teenagers aged between 15 to 18 years.
Initially, the response was very cold. Mr.Nirmal almost went unnoticed at the party. Suddenly a boy tasted the pancakes and then everyone was literally jumping on Mr.Nirmal’s head.
The main course, potato chips, soft drinks, Manchurian, noodles all were left alone. Everyone was munching pancakes and nothing else. The supply was less and the demand was more. Finally, Mr.Nirmal shut down his serving desk. The batter, chocolate syrups, garnishing material was out of stock.
The boys and girls at the party took Mr.Nirmal’s contact details. After this incident, Mr.Nirmal was invited to 7 different private parties with his mini pancakes. Surprisingly all 7 orders were from the guest at the party.
So next time if you think about serving deserts try mini pancakes. It Yummilicious!
