On the first morning of our Galinburg trip, we woke up fashionably late as we normally do on our vacation. The agenda for that day was to explore Gatlinburg as much as we could. So the big breakfast was called for.
Typically, when we stay at the suite hotel with kitchen, we bought grocery to stock up for breakfast. But this trip, I wanted to try out a few local eateries.
Our first stop was the Log Cabin Pancake House which conveniently located right across the street from the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Smoky Mountain Resort. Even before we walked inside, this place already grabbed our full attention with a chuck wagon sticking out from their roof top. Now, that’s where we want to have our country style breakfast.
The Log Cabin Pancake House seems to be a local favorite for both breakfast and lunch. The place was filled with families in big tables all around the huge fireplace enjoying scrumptious breakfast.
The breakfast menu has what you will normally expect from the pancake house. With varieties of pancake and waffle, it made an indecisive person like me felt rather lost.
Mr. Rojo, on the other hand, knew exactly what he wanted right away. For a big Reese fan, the Butterscotch Chip Pancake was a perfect dish to satisfy your craving for peanut butter cup. Kids also had many choices for from their Jr. menu where they could choose from waffle, pancake, and french toast.
After a big meal, we checked out the little shopping area inside the restaurant filled with funny signs and souvenirs. I guess when you are in the tourist destination, it’s easy to find souvenirs even in a restaurant. I, however, loved the long front patio lined with rocking chairs.
This place was definitely a great place for breakfast. Like most other restaurants in tourist town, the price seems to be on the higher side of the fence for us. We spent almost $40 for a family of 4 for breakfast. Well, that’s what we normally spend on eating out for dinner!
