Long Table Pancakes is a small-batch pancake mix company in Chicago from Samuel Taylor and Susanna Taylor. They work with small farmers and millers to deliver the freshest possible grains grown on local Midwest farms. Their goal is to deliver to the consumer a tender cake that is also an unshakeable breakfast.
Shop & support Long Table Pancakes at the Chicago Artisan Market on Sat & Sun, May 1-2, 2021 at Artifact Events (4325 N. Ravenswood), where they will be joined by top Chicago & Midwest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art. (Socially distanced, mask required)
The company is run from Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood by Samuel and his mother Susanna. Samuel made whole grain pancakes five days a week for two years and took copious notes on the process and product in order to perfect the three flavors from Long Table Pancakes.
Chicago is at the center of North America’s greatest grain-basket: flavorful, rich heritage grains are available here that are not available elsewhere. Long Table Pancakes provides their customers with top-quality, 100% whole grain stone ground mixes that are high in protein and fiber. They only use top-quality, locally sourced grains as they strive to support local farmers and millers.
White Knight (brunch style)
Made with oat, almond, popcorn and poppy seeds. Delicate and airy, the popcorn – air popped and then stone-milled is what makes these the fluffiest and tastiest pancakes you?ve ever eaten.
Popcorn flour – an invention of Long Table Pancakes.
Windy Point (lumberjack style)
Made with rye, hazelnut, blue corn and buckwheat. Tender and substantial, these cakes have an earthy, complex flavor. Maple syrup never had so good a partner.
Eat cake for breakfast work like a lumberjack.
