This stack of three pancakes was delightfully soft and fluffy. The inside of the pancakes were slightly undercooked, although I must admit I did enjoy that as it went pretty well with the toppings.

Instead of the staple of butter and maple syrup, Brotherbird Coffeehouse serves their pancakes with a yummy blueberry maple compote that had a generous amount of fresh blueberries. But the star of the dish was definitely the whipped vanilla and mascarpone cream. It had the consistency of light whipped cream, but the addition of mascarpone cheese added a nice richness and just the slightest amount of tanginess. The cream also melted into the warm pancakes which just made everything taste even better.

While my all-time favourite blueberry pancakes are from Clinton Street Baking Company, this is a pretty solid contender.
