When my kids have a sleep over, I get the usual dad eye rolls about everything until it's pancake time.  Then I am the hero who makes buttermilk blueberry pancakes with proper maple syrup and whipped cream

Reminds me of this happening when a French person brought in some crepes for her UK colleagues :


Thousands of French people die a little inside.
Dies laughing!

And some British person wondering what kind of cake that was. Lmfao

Did they mix up the gravy and syrup? Or maybe they thought gravy, like biscuits and gravy, like some vague thing they heard of? Or maybe they're trying a chicken and waffles savoury kind of thing!

I'm guessing they've not been to America before,  just guessing?  You don't even need good pancakes in America to know beef gravy doesn't go. 

I hope you told them what was what? 

Scottish chef or from somewhere else, I wonder?

I bet jfkimberly would like it, because it's gravy. Just need some ham with it.   :P ;)

haha!  If I could figure out how to get a photo of my inlaws' gravy without being caught, I would show you.  That stack of pancakes and gravy (?!) looks good in comparison.

On a different note, they are really trying. They've only been open since Monday and they offer free, unlimited coffee, all meals under £5 And served in 10 minutes or less or it's free.

You should introduce yourself as an American, and offer guidance.  If they listen to you, you will be creating a valuable resource, and they will be creating food that's actually edible.  :)

But the British know crepes... don't they?  How did that even happen?

I have already, on Facebook, before they even opened. Tried to get them to consider southern buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy.  They said their menu and training are already in place.

I'll leave more feedback though.

That is unfortunate.  Biscuits and gravy were Hardee's most popular breakfast food back when I used to hang out there while my cousin was working.My cousin had to go in at, like, 3am to start making the ("Made from Scratch™") biscuits.

Lol. Idk.  But I was on board when I thought the pancakes were on the side. I can't even imagine chilli on pancakes or bbq pork and slaw. No... Just absolutely No!

The sound of those menu items makes me queasy. Why would you do that? I mean a savory crêpe is one thing or bacon with your pancakes. But that. No just... No.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

Even the sweet combinations on those pancakes make me feel sick... I like maple (or golden) syrup, and butter.  Full stop.  DO NOT put fruit on or near my pancakes.  DO NOT put whipped cream, chocolate sauce or peanut butter on or near my pancakes.  Just slather them in butter and drown in syrup, and I will be happy.

I must be a weird one, but I would try pancakes with gravy. But I wouldn't do it with sausage or hash browns. I would really want it to be all savoury. Like say pancakes with a burger and gravy. I can totally see it, because pancakes are just carby goodness that just soaks up stuff.   I can see the link.

Hold on, I just need to jump in my car to come and burn that place down!  Pulled pork pancakes with slaw? 
The good news is that I'll be able to split the gas money with a few French people who no doubt will be mortified by savoury crepes with ROAST BEEF and hash browns.  You could not have come up with a menu item more infuriating to the French if you had used a focus group.
