Lighthouse Cafe’s Pumpkin Pancakes

By Anna Faller | Nov. 12, 2022

If you ask us, there’s never a wrong time for breakfast. No shade to lunch and dinner, of course; there’s just something about a cheesy egg scramble or buttery toast that sates at all hours. To quell those singular AM cravings, Elberta’s Lighthouse Café is a must, where a hot, homemade breakfast is always available. This fall, find us elbow-deep in a plate of their fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes. Served in stacks of two and dolloped with sugar-dusted whipped cream, these hearty hotcakes start with sweet cream batter blended with pumpkin pie filling, milk, brown sugar, and a bouquet of spices. To serve, they’re griddled to golden perfection and drizzled with a homemade cinnamon glaze. Even sweeter, they’re just $6.50 per stack. We couldn’t imagine a more gourd-geous breakfast! Better get ’em while they’re hot, as this autumn dish disappears after Thanksgiving. Find the Lighthouse Café at 735 Frankfort Ave., Elberta. (231) 352-5273. For more information, visit
