Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes

There's a new breakfast place for diners to try in Munster. Buttermilk Pancake House opened recently at Ridge Road and Calumet Avenue.

The eatery, located in the former building which housed El Salto, features breakfast, brunch and lunch.

Buttermilk Pancake House's interior is cozy with various paintings on the wall as well as pictures with encouraging words on them.

Our choice for breakfast was an order of Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes ($8.49). The pancakes featured caramelized pineapple chunks with a sweet cream and cinnamon butter. It was a hefty helping and proved flavorful - it didn't even need syrup. The pancakes were also fairly fluffy.
