“Good ole' flapjacks in Hartford, CT”
"Mo's is proudest of its home fries, and they are cause for admiration. Cut into extra large hunks and seasoned with brio, they are kept warm in a huge heap on the griddle in the dining room open-kitchen. Whenever the grill man finishes an omelet or an order of eggs, he takes his spatula and heaps a pile of these hefty potatoes alongside. Good as the hash browns are, it's pancakes that are our siren song. Mo's makes several kinds, including apple-walnut, blueberry, chocolate chip and strawberry-raspberry. The unfilled and unfancy buttermilk cakes are the ones we like best. Made of whole wheat flour and with a faint sweetness reminiscent of cinnamon, they are thick and tender and featherweight, fairly levitated off the grill in irregular shapes and piled willy nilly (by ones, twos, or threes) on a plate. Not handsome pancakes, but memorable ones, they are true breakfast comfort food. Mo's reputation is as a breakfast place, but there's lunch, too: hamburgers and sandwiches (with hash browns available midday, too) and homemade soup. It's a cozy little spot, inconspicuously located in a cluster of stores near Farmington Avenue. Seating is in several booths along a wall, at a handful of tables up front, and at the counter with a view of the grill. Service is attentive and efficient, but not ultra-fast. Everything is cooked to order -- expertly."
