Pigeon Forge has no shortage of breakfast establishments, but nothing quite compares to Smoky’s Pancake Cabin. Serving a variety of inventive pancakes and hearty breakfast platters, this local favorite should be at the top of your list when you want to indulge. Get ready to enjoy your pancakes with chocolate, whipped cream, or even bacon.

Pancakes may be the top breakfast offering at this location, but there’s no shortage of other tasty dishes. If you’re in the mood for a hearty meal with plenty of eggs, meat, or cheese, you’re in luck; you’ll find more than enough to fill your stomach with the restaurant’s omelets and breakfast specials.

If you want something a bit lighter, you can order from a special menu with healthier fare. Visitors with dietary restrictions will be pleased to find an egg white omelet and gluten-sensitive waffles, among other options.

Kids adore Smoky’s Pancake Cabin, which has family-friendly vibes and a wonderful children’s menu known as Junior Bear Breakfast. From the Chocolate Cub Cakes to the Chunky Monkey Cakes, your young dining companions will have no trouble finding something scrumptious to order.

Adults will want to pair their breakfast with coffee, which, while not fancy, helps to deliver that quaint cafe feel that visitors find so appealing. Better yet, the bottomless coffee policy means that you will be highly caffeinated when you leave with a belly full of breakfast.

As you enjoy your meal, enjoy the friendly atmosphere — and essential at any Smoky Mountains breakfast joint. You’ll want to return both for the sake of the pancakes and the wonderful service.

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

Reese’s Pancakes
As the ultimate pancake indulgence, this feels more like dessert than breakfast — and that’s exactly what makes it so compelling for any visitor with a serious sweet tooth. It features chocolate chips and diced Reese’s peanut butter cups, as well as chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, and whipped cream.

Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes
If you love pineapple upside-down cake, you will be a huge fan of this pancake offshoot. These caramelized pineapple pancakes come with cherries and are generously topped with cream cheese icing.

Cheesecake Pancakes
Stuffed with delectable cheesecake bites, these irresistible pancakes can be topped with your choice of blueberries with cream cheese or strawberries and chocolate. Either way, you’ll be glad you ordered this unique pancake-cheesecake hybrid.

Big Dave’s Breakfast
Eat your fill of meat with Big Dave’s Breakfast, which should be more than enough to fuel you for a day of adventures in Pigeon Forge, or, more likely, a wonderful food-induced nap. This breakfast spread includes applewood-smoked bacon, country ham, grilled smoked sausage, and a sausage patty. As if all that’s not enough, you’ll also receive three eggs prepared according to your preferences, plus hash brown casserole and your choice of grits or gravy.

Chipped Beef Gravy Omelet
You won’t find this memorable egg-based breakfast just anywhere. It consists of a simple cheese omelet but is smothered in chipped beef gravy. Like all omelets offered at Smoky’s, it comes with two buttermilk pancakes on the side.

As you can see, breakfast is serious business at Smoky’s Pancake Cabin. Stop by to get your day in Pigeon Forge off to a delicious start.

Insider Tips: 
– Like many local breakfast joints, Smoky’s Pancake Cabin gets incredibly busy on the weekend. You might be able to beat the crowds if you arrive early, but you may find it easier to order online for pickup. To make the dining process more efficient, the restaurant also offers a waitlist option that allows you to designate the number of people in your party and find out how many groups are ahead of you in line.
– Don’t hesitate to ask for a custom order. The staff is happy to honor special requests to ensure that all visitors are able to enjoy an excellent meal.
