We love breakfast, especially when pancakes are involved. So when we ordered the pumpkin pancakes - a current holiday special at Sweet Life Bakery and Café in Dorchester - our hopes were high. Even after all that pumpkin pie, we took a gamble. And won. The cakes are light, fluffy and pumpkiny without being too sweet and just the right amount of spice. Excellent with the whipped cinnamon butter melted over the warm 'cakes. The only caveat: you have to BYORS - bring your own real (maple) syrup Maybe that will change. We’re willing to spring a buck or two for it (617-696-6510).
