Hive Coffee Company
This Jarrow site is going all out for Pancake Day while also keeping options available throughout the February half term.
From Monday, February 12 until Sunday, February 25 they have a series of pancake options on the menu for all the family including an American wafle breakfast stack, lemon meringue stack, mango lime and coconut granola stack as well as a Valentine's Stack, which includes chocolate sauce, crumbled Oreos and strawberries.

South Tyneside's favourite dessert brand is returning for pancake Day this year with a huge selection of stacks on their Ocean Road site.
The brand has made way for seven different stacks this year including bubblegum and peach and passionfruit as well as old favourites such as strawberry and chocolate and caramel shortbread options.
These are all available on the day for sit in or takeaway meals from the Ocean Road site.
This South Shields independent business is open every evening of the week and even offers home delivery through online orders.
Pancake Day is every day for the Stanhope Road shop which offers an incredible 24 crepe options from classics such as golden syrup and chocolate and stawberry to Maltesers, Milky Way and Reece's Peanit Butter crepe options.
Yolo Coffee and Kitchen
It may be slightly further afield for some South Tyneside residents, but this coastline cafe tends to really deliver on Pancake Day.
Based at the Stack in Seaburn, the cafe has been open for as long as the site itself and regularly offers a small handful of pancake options, but more are usually available for the big day itself.
Sea Change Cafe
This community led cafe on South Shields' Ocean Road has recently been on the brink of closure, but the site is still going strong and offers pancakes as part of its normal brunch menu every day it is open.
