Chef Anne Quatrano’s (Bacchanalia, Star Provisions, Floataway Cafe, W.H. Stiles Fish Camp) latest restaurant, Pancake Social, should open in late January or early February 2019 next to Mountain High Outfitters at Ponce City Market.

But, the all-day breakfast restaurant and coffeehouse, serving as many as eight varieties of savory to sweet pancakes, isn’t just any pancake house slinging flapjacks doused with high fructose corn syrups and fruit sauces, topped with whipped cream from morning until night. Sorry, IHop fans.

Quatrano plans to focus on multigrain and sourdough pancake mixes, rather than just the traditional flour-based mixtures using milk, eggs, and sugar with real maple syrup and real fruit. The menu will also offer gluten free pancakes as well as breakfast bowls, sandwiches, and a burger or two.

The 150-seat restaurant and coffeehouse includes a covered patio facing Historic Fourth Ward Park along North Avenue.

Quatrano is partnering in Pancake Social with restaurateurs Dan Jacobson (formerly of Chick-fil-A) and Steven Chan (Tin Drum Asian Kitchen), and Revelator coffee director of retail (co-founder of Octane) Tony Riffel. The group plans to open a second location of Pancake Social at Pinewood Forest, a planned community 28 miles south of Atlanta in Fayetteville, next year.
