Society Cafe vs. Terrace Pointe Pancake Off

When we first heard word of the existence of Society Cafe at the then forthcoming Encore, our immediate thoughts pinned the joint as the 'new' Terrace Pointe Cafe, a joint we love.

Will Society's pancakes hold a candle to the iconic and almost universally hailed 'best pancakes ever' at Terrace Pointe?

Our initial visit to Society was less than exciting, with fault pinned to limited late night menu and opening week service kinks. Our second visit a week later was during breakfast hours and included a plate of their flapjacks... stacked three up, covered in fresh fruit and dusted with powdered sugar.

Society's perfectly round p-cakes were fluffy, delicious and fruit toppings were fresh and juicy. Overall, very well presented. Minor gripe: not enough syrup, which wouldn't be a problem if service wasn't all over the place.

The next day, we headed to Terrace Pointe to revisit a handful of our old menu favorites - Maine Lobster Benedict (they changed it) and their lauded pancakes.

TPC's pancake (we only ordered one, just for tasting purposes) came with less fruit and powdered sugar and was nearly rectangular in shape - not nearly as good to look at as Society's. First bite was crispy on the outside, fluffy/creamy on the inside and still had that melt in your mouth quality that only increases as it is devoured.

Winner: Terrace Pointe, by a mile.



Comments & Discussion:

If I had intelligence a year or more ago, I would have asked you to throw Tableau's pancake into the mix.

Terrace Pointe is always where I get the most un-Wynn like service. It can be very hit or miss. That and I feel like I'm paying that high premium for The Wynn Experience(tm)(r)(etc) and getting what amounts to coffee shop food at any of the four-star places in town.

No price details?! Cmon dood!!!
