Try Our Pancakes - Its Who We Are!

Menu Highlights

Tom once said “There is only love” and that is how Tom’s Place wants to prepare each and every pancake, with the care that recalls that we are a family.

Please note that some of our dishes do include nuts. While we will do all we can to isolate ingredients and utensils for the sake of those with nut sensitivity, we cannot guarantee safety to those with severe nut allergies.

The Back of the Yards needs more diversified food choices

"The Back of the Yards needs more diversified food choices and having a pancake house will be another option. The pancake house will also keep the investment in the community. Currently, if residents want other food options they travel outside the community. A pancake house will also bring needed outside money coming into the community."
