More souffle pancakes are found at Cloud Nine Cafe. However, these are jiggly versions made with a fair amount of egg whites, giving them a supple, ethereal texture.

Otherwise, there are those with mango cream and pineapple, strawberry cream, chocolate cream with Oreo cookie bits, coconut cream bruleed with bananas, matcha cream with azuki, and salted cream cheese with macadamia nuts. And of course, an original version with maple syrup and butter is available as well. These are available all day until the afternoon for those late risers.
