The Pfunky Griddle, located in a cute cottage house in the Berry Hill section near 100 Oaks, my favorite spot is out on the screened in patio, surrounded by lots of large trees, and a great funky vibe.
I don’t venture out to too many breakfast places because I want my breakfast on the slimmer side. The good news about the Pfunky Griddle is that YOU COOK THE FOOD on a griddle that is built into your table.
You cook your own pancakes, scramble your own eggs, crisp up your own potatoes.
If you don’t want a lot of cheese on your eggs, and you want healthy additions like spinach and red onion that’s what you order. If you want to eat ten pancakes, they are all you can eat. You get both a regular batter and a multi-grain batter, which is the one we prefer. And, for $1 more, they have gluten free. Bravo for that.
They have a large assortment of ingredients for both pancakes and egg dishes. You can get very creative or just keep it simple.
Be prepared to crack and scramble your eggs and show the world how you can cook (or not). And, if you’re not in the breakfast or cooking mood, they do have soups, salads and sandwiches which are prepared in the kitchen, except for the grilled cheese, which you get to grill yourself.
Every time I’ve eaten at the Pfunky Griddle, I ordered eggs, spinach, cheddar cheese and red onion. I first saute the onion, then add the spinach, top with cheese and then add in the scrambled eggs. The eggs are sold ala carte so you order as many eggs as fits your appetite.
It’s a little tricky figuring out how to scramble the eggs while someone else is making pancakes, but it’s still a lot of fun and I can control the amount of fat and cheese in my eggs and know that my hour working out wasn’t wasted. However, it’s a little hard to resist the potatoes. They are a huge portion and I suggest sharing them.
You can get as creative as you want. The girls next to us were from Vanderbilt and had some fun creating their sorority symbol.
The next time you’re in the mood for funky breakfast, head over to the Pfunky Griddle, and just in case you want pancakes for breakfast, they are serving them for $4.99 every Wednesday till the end of the year.
