America's Best Pancakes

A weathered gray shingle diner, popular with the summer
crowd that waits for the housemade doughnuts, gets equally high marks for its
plain Yankee pancakes. Since this is New England, you can choose flapjacks made
with tart cranberries and fresh blueberries. Order a short stack and save room
for a serving of raisin bread French toast. Pure maple syrup is a premium so
expect to pay extra.
Best side: Hot cinnamon doughnut.
