Founded by Robert Baldwin in 1961, the Pancake Pantry has been a Nashville tradition for generations of families. Baldwin’s son, David, began learning the ropes as a ten-year-old, helping the rest of my family build the business as well. Eventually taking over the business in 1988, David would make frequent trips to the hills of East Tennessee to retrieve the specialty group flours used in our pancakes and waffles. Although David sold the Pancake Pantry in 2017, batter and syrups are still made fresh each day from those secret Baldwin family recipes.
We strive to keep our traditional past alive, while cultivating innovative ideas to make the Pantry the best. We feel the same way about our customers by cherishing our long-time regulars and always looking forward to meeting our newest visitors.
