Is purple your favourite colour? If so, you need to take a bite of this brunch feast. Forget your regular bowl of cereal or slice of toast. You can get a stack of all-purple pancakes in Manitoba.
Let's face it; every morning is better with pancakes. But why go through the hassle of flipping them on a skillet when you can get an order to go?
We love the idea, as it is the perfect way to be extra lazy on the weekend. You can stay in your comfy loungewear and grab a container of food to enjoy at home.
Their ube breakfast is so delicious; you are going to want to order pancakes with a side of pancakes.
At this restaurant, the fluffy breakfast cakes aren't anything like the ones you make at home. Instead, they are flavoured with ube, which gives them a delightfully nutty taste and vibrant violet hue.
For those of you who haven't had ube before, be prepared to get addicted.
But the chefs don't stop there. Overtop, they drizzle their homemade syrup that is a blend of ube and mashed purple yams to add an extra burst of flavour.
Next, they lightly dust icing sugar over everything to please your sweet tooth.
Finally, they add a scoop of purple ice cream and some sweet coconut pieces on top.
The restaurant is just a quick 15-minute drive from downtown Winnipeg. An order of ube pancakes is $11.50 and their menu is packed with breakfast options.
We don't know about you, but we are already drooling thinking about taking a bite. The contrast between the warm cakes and frosty ice cream is just so good.
Don't take our word for it; you need to experience them for yourself.
