It was a Saturday afternoon like any other, in which my boyfriend and I explored the state next door. A trip to the mall left me with two gorgeous new Chanel Rouge Coco's (more on that in a bit), a few new items of clothing (shhh, don't tell), and a monster appetite for something delicious.Our appetites led me (and him) to the Country Pancake House in Ridgewood NJ, a culinary house of epic proportions (and portions).
Read on, take the jump!

The menu is HUGE, and boasts over 90 varieties of Pancakes, nearly 50 omelettes, 50 varieties of waffles, and well... you get the idea.
I ordered a Grilled Chicken, Mushroom, Onion and Cream Cheese Frittata, with Banana Blueberry Pancakes. Shocked was I when a platter the size of my torso arrived, with complimentary cornbread.

The meal was overwhelmingly delicious, and my boyfriend and I happily dug into our breakfasts turned dinners. Unfortunately, our eyes were definitely much bigger than our heads. I barely finished half!
Even more shocking, my boyfriend couldn't finish half of his meal! Wow.
High and giddy after so much gut-busting deliciousness, we were shocked at the puny pricetag for the meal, which was only $24! Needless to say, my boyfriend and I now have a new favorite spot, in Ridgewood New Jersey of all places.
For all of my locals looking for delicious food, mammoth sized portions, and great value, run (don't walk!) to the Country Pancake House in Ridgewood New Jersey. I promise you, this place brings the epic noms.
