Love me some Ube Pancakes in Granada Hills

Let's enjoy a lazy Sunday morning breakfast of yummy ube pancakes with sweet coconut syrup and melted butter...mmmmm, so good.

Ninongs Pastries and Cafe is a local Granada Hills favorite. Only 4 days out of a month, they offer their popular ube pancakes.  For $7.95 you get 3 ube pancakes, 2 eggs cooked to order, and choice of corned beef/longanisa/spam/sausage patty/or bacon.  Beverages are extra.

I usually order the ube pancake special with 2 eggs over easy, corned beef and a side of rice (50cents).  Total bill with tax (no tip needed) is $9.  After this meal, I'm pretty much stuffed for the rest of the day.

This is the only cafe/coffee shop I know of that offers coffee (Barako) and herbal teas (ampalaya, lagundi, ginger, banaba) grown and harvested on the Philippine islands.  If you're more of a chocolate person, you can try their intensely rich Filipino tableau hot chocolate.

If you're not in the pancake mood, this cafe also serves a full menu for breakfast and lunch. Try an asado or tocino baguette sandwich, longanisa empanada, or pandan cupcake.

Attire:  Whatever you want. Pajamas are okay too.

Parking: Street parking only. The cafe is located at the corner of Chatsworth and White Oak.  Free parking (no meters) north of Chatsworth along White Oak.  Mind the signs and curb colors.

Cost: They take cash, visa, mastercard, discover, debit cards.

    Great venue but even better company. Laughed, stole someone's rice (sorry, Lynn), and shared the meal family style - except for Jonathan. Can't wait to do this again.

    Does anyone want to carpool from NELA? Glassell Park, Eagle Rock, Glendale, Silver Lake areas? Trying to save on gas (Jeep gets AVERAGE about 15.5 - yes really). Hope I find someone close by who has a Prius. :)

    Oooh, UBE! I've been to this place a handful of times and never knew about ube pancakes. Thanks for introducing this to us, Michelle. BTW, for everyone who hasn't been there, they also have large ube cupcakes. :)
