From Arizona Inn, Tucson, AZ
There's just no beating the right pancake in the right place. No offense to the other versions on the menu at Tucson's Arizona Inn (they're terrific too), but the blue corn pancakes with prickly pear syrup – the rich, dense cornmeal setting off the fruity hints of the syrup – deliver the perfect desert breakfast experience.
ARIZONA INN, 2200 E. Elm St.; (520) 325-1541 or www.arizonainn.com. Pancakes available in the dining room and through room service 7–10 a.m.
