It’s my Birthday Month! And I’m taking advantage of all the birthday deals available to me by attempting to get one birthday deal every day. Please read more about my mission in my “About” page. On we go!!
Business: Elmer’s Restaurants
Offer: One German Pancake
Via: Printed email from Elmer’s eClub
So it is no longer my birthday here in the middle of August — instead, it is my wife’s birthday! All month we have been taking advantage of her birthday offers, and I thought I’d post a few places that I didn’t get to feature back during my birthday month of January. Today we had breakfast at Elmer’s Pancake and Steakhouse — oops, they don’t use that moniker any longer, they want to be known as Elmer’s Restaurants! And so that’s where we went with our massive appetites.
This birthday offer is for a free plated-sized German Pancake. For a small additional charge you can upgrade this freebie to a combo. That’s what my wife decided to do, and it was worth it. The combo includes the pancake, two eggs and your choice of either bacon, honey-cured ham, sausage patty, country pork sausage links or chicken apple sausage links. With some gentle subliminal messages (also known as Jedi Mind Tricks), I was able to convince her to go with the bacon. I ordered a separate breakfast platter and when the food arrived we just shared our dishes family style.
Elmer’s Restaurants is a ‘Must-Have’ because there are not many breakfast birthday offers out there and because you get a pretty darn good German Pancake. The dish is pretty simple, dusted with powdered sugar and served only with butter and lemon wedges. For an additional charge ($1.99) you can add on some other fresh fruit topping, but we were pretty satisfied with it as it was — no syrup at all is needed for this fine treat. There are four Portland-area Elmer’s Restaurants and breakfast is served all day. As a member of the eClub, you will receive the email coupon two days prior to your birthday and then you will have seven days to use it.
