Everyone knows the best part about pancakes is piling all things sweet and sticky on top to turn ordinary breakfast into a treat-yourself occasion. New food truck Lulu’s Little Pancakes, which will be making appearances at Colt State Park for events, dares to take the beloved diner staple a step (or three) further by sparing no indulgence, be it whipped cream, cereal, cookie crumble, chocolate chips, or fruity drizzle. Owner Adrianna Webster seeks to devise variations for every taste, essentially curating “a whole new pancake eating experience”. She explains, “There’s the convenience of them being bite-sized and the creative, gourmet topping selection… We aim to be more of a dessert option than breakfast, although I admittedly wouldn’t mind eating these delicious mini pancakes in the morning!”
There are riffs on actual sweets like Strawberry Shortcake, Banana Cream Pie, and Cookie Butter (think Biscoff, the European gingerbread spread), but the showstoppers you’ll see this summer include colorful and fruity pancake creations. Mango Tango is drizzled with puree and topped with fresh blueberries and white chocolate chips. Cereal-forward offerings are perfect for kids and kids-at-heart, starring Crunch Berry or Fruity Pebbles drizzled with sweet milk. Watch for the purple truck popping up around town and get ready to trade maple syrup for the likes of cookie butter.
