I made a visit to Mickies at the reccomendation of a good friend last week. I made my visit yesterday after he kept urging me to try their pancakes.
I have been a long time fan-favorite for TOPH and untill now I have never found a place with better flapjacks then TOPH.
I was told that Mickies has the biggest pancakes in Madison period. I was curiouse to see for myself. So on this Friday morning at 8am I walk in and find a buzzing 50's style diner with college students, bussiness types, blue collar, bikers etc, anyone and everyone was there!
I pulled up a seat at the bar and orderd up the Apple Cinnamon Raisin pancakes, a combo of which I had never tried before. Now when these suckers arrived (quickly I might add) they really were the thickest pancakes I ever saw! Thicker then the plate they came on! And they were just loaded with apples and raisins as well. Its only two cakes but by weight its got to be about 10 of TOPH standard pancakes. I have a big appetite but these guys hit the mark!
I give my vote for Mickies as the best pancakes in Madison, and for 5.50 you cant go wrong, compared to the 7.50 at TOPH anyway. Im still a fan of TOPH but Mickies has won me over as a new favorite. The best part of all is that I still have 5 other types of pancake to try at Mikies!
