Portland, Maine, Restaurant Named Best in State for Blueberry Pancakes
There's just something about a delicious breakfast that makes the rest of the day go so much smoother. For years, there's been no shortage of delicious breakfast joints all across the state of Maine, each one of them putting their touch on classic breakfast staples.
But according to the New York Daily News, there's only one place to go in Maine if you're after a specific breakfast item. Becky's Diner on Commercial Street in Portland has been named the best in the state when it comes to serving up delicious blueberry pancakes.
Becky's Diner has become a must-stop for tourists visiting Portland over the years. The restaurant has been featured on shows such as Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives for its wide array of brunch favorites, as well as fresh seafood options.
So why blueberry pancakes? The New York Daily News declares that Becky's pancakes are the perfect mix of "light and buttery". Toss in another Maine delicacy (fresh blueberries) along side some real maple syrup and you've got a guaranteed win.
Becky's took the torch of having the best pancakes in Maine from another small town favorite. Several years ago, Food Network declared Crissy's Breakfast and Coffee Bar in Damariscotta as having the best blueberry pancakes in the entire state. Crissy's was a hidden gem, and the restaurant was unfortunately a casualty of the pandemic.
So if the lines weren't long enough outside of Becky's, expect a few more hungry parties this summer eagerly awaiting a helping of blueberry pancakes with a side of hash.
