I don't know about you guys, but I'm always game for a pancake. Gimme a classic, no filling, butter with maple syrup pancake as big as my face or a super fancy, loaded to the crispy edges pancake with all the fixings... I don't discriminate. Any pancake is a friend of mine.

Here are some of the best looking pancakes around Portland, Maine. My stomach is already grumbling for weekend brunch. I'll take one of each, please.

Bayside American Café

Yelp.com reviewer Tina Y. says: 

Definitely the best cinnamon roll pancakes I've ever had. I ordered one and it was huge, enough to share. It was so fluffy. Absolutely amazing.

Caiola's

Yelp.com reviewer Justin A. says: 

Went for the brunch and it was Fan-tas-tic. Some of the best pancakes I've ever had. I'm not a native Mainer, so I'm not used to the local syrup and that might explain why I was so over the top about the pancakes. But, regardless, the meal was fantastic.

Yelp.com reviewer Samantha C. says: 

Their service is always amazing, and their brunch is true perfection....but their pancake is LEGENDARY! You must try it....you have not lived until you have had a pancake from Local 188.

Becky's Diner

Yelp.com reviewer Dan F. says: 

I had the pancakes and they were really great.  My wife enjoyed her meal as well.  My son got the Mickey Mouse pancake and he liked the ears and face they put on it.  This place is a winner.
