The big fluffy pancakes come flying out of the Tasty Crust kitchen on top of plates that can barely hold them. The pancakes’ soft, fluffy texture and warm, homemade flavor wins us, and our readers, over every time. We don’t need special syrups or whipped cream to make our pancakes good, but we do need Tasty Crust’s special recipe stacks and a scoop of their butter. That works. 1770 Mill St., Wailuku; 808-244-0845; tastycrust.com
