Sawyer’s Gourmet Pancake House:
“The world’s best pancakes? In Mid-Michigan? Believe it!” I read this on Yelp about Sawyer’s Gourmet Pancake House as we were headed there. My husband said it was good stuff, and I was in the mood for some serious carby goodness, so off we went.
We managed to get the last table available (it was about 9 a.m. on Sunday), so no wait, but the place quickly filled up with people willing to do just that. I kept seeing these HUGE pancakes go by that smelled delicious, and the menu listed pancake offerings that sounded too good to be true. I finally settled for the apple cinnamon pecan pancakes, and the kids got chocolate chip pancakes (my husband got an omelet).
As the place filled up to maximum capacity, I realized how wonderful it was to see (and HEAR) a business in Lansing doing so well. In fact, signs on the table expressed the owner’s search for investors so they can expand. When our food arrived, I also heard the sounds of a family enjoying their food. This short clip features both sounds - a successful business and extreme food pleasure. (If you listen closely, you’ll hear my 5 year old say, “I want to marry this pancake, it’s so good…” Thanks for the experience, Sawyer’s! It won’t be our last.
