Pineapple Coconut Pancakes

Pineapple Coconut Pancake Recipe

When I first met my bestie Amy Black, (fabulous fashion blogger & Instagrammer @amysvintagecloset!) she was managing the cutest little breakfast & lunch spot in La Jolla called Coffee Cup.

Not only was it fun to bop in to visit her at work, but the food was incredible! Amy has since moved back to Phoenix, but I still frequent Coffee Cup for their delicious food!

Pineapple Coconut Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup

I was there a few weeks back and noticed Pineapple Coconut Pancakes on the “special of the day menu”. I had just finished a long hike and was really excited about my Avocado Scramble with Bacon, so I didn’t order the pancakes, but I’ve been thinking about them ever since!

I finally got around to making them at home this week and O-M-G was it worth the wait!
