Award-Winning and Famous

By far one of our most popular and famous events, every first Sunday of the month we serve up authentic Swedish pancakes for our members and our friends in the community! The pancake breakfast is open to the public, so come and experience what is often imitated, but never quite done right. In addition to Swedish pancakes, there's music and folk dancing, good friends, and real Swedish coffee. Everyone is welcome!

Price for Breakfast [includes pancakes with lingonberries or strawberries, ham, milk, coffee, orange juice, and seconds]:

Adults: $9. SCC Members $7. Children 5–12: $5. Children under 5: FREE.

Our breakfast runs between 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on the first Sunday of every month, with two exceptions: there is no breakfast in July or August, and thanks to Labor Day weekend, our September breakfast happens on the second Sunday rather than the first. Here's the schedule for 2013/2014:

If you would like to volunteer and help at the pancake breakfast, please and let us know!

P.S. In the event that you can't join us for pancakes, you can always try our recipe for yourself at home. Oh, and it took us a while to catch on, but apparently blogging about our pancakes is something of a local obsession. Believe us, these are great pancakes—but if you don't believe us, perhaps you'll believe Joey Veltkamp, the Seattle Times and Seattle P-I, KCTS 9, the Seattle Weekly (not once but twice), FlavBlog, Culinary Fool, Findwell, or eight out of nine reviewers at Yelp.
