Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill & Griddle House

601 Ponce Deleon Blvd, De Leon Springs, FL 32130

The Old Spanish Sugar Mill is a unique restaurant located inside the DeLeon Springs State Park. Opened in 1961 by Peter and Marjorie Schwarze, they have been serving in the same unusual style ever since.

Each table is equipped with a griddle and they bring you pitchers of homemade pancake batters (both a stone ground mixture of five different flours and an unbleached white) and you pour them on and flip them over right at the table. You may order blueberries, bananas, peanut butter, pecans, chocolate chips, apples or apple sauce to create whatever sort of pancakes you choose.   They also have sausage, bacon, ham, eggs, homemade breads and an assortment of other treats to accompany your pancakes.
