Buckwheat pancakes all you can eat.

April 7th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Oh, there’s less than a week left to get yourself up to Cartwright’s Maple Tree Inn near Angelica, New York.

This is the unusual place that serves buckwheat pancakes three meals a day but only for 8 or 9 weeks a year.  The 2010 season ends this Sunday, April 11. The lines can be long, but as this video clip shows, you may meet some interesting characters while waiting.  (Kevin Conrad edited this clip with video shot by Bob Lubomski, audio by Glenn Syska and music by Buddy Nutt.)

We were there on the first weekend in March, and they weren’t making maple syrup in the basement yet, but we’re sure they’re cooking full tilt now. And Rhonda will still be making and serving pancakes. I say, Sit at the counter. The show is better there.

Back when we were there, we made a quick blog-video (edited by Glenn Syska with video and audio by Ryan Krumm) and you can watch that one again too!

    Just wanted to tell you I really like your PBS series of shows, and I look forward to seeing the Breakfast show tonight. Keep up the good work.

    I love your documentaries! Do you take assistants along on your eating forays? If so, I’d like to join the next one……
