The second I wake up, I seriously contemplate skipping my morning meetings so I can drive over to Daughter’s Diner in Uptown Oakland for a Beast Mode bagel sandwich, which comes with incredible house-made sausage, arugula, pickled onions, and brie on a fresh Boichik bagel. Shortly after, like clockwork, my mind wanders to the princess pancakes. If it were pancake week on The Great British Bake Off, I’d bet money that this bright purple masterpiece would receive a Paul Hollywood handshake thanks to its sweet raspberry jam layers, melty almond marzipan, and dusting of powdered sugar. I’d eat these pancakes any time of the day - which, luckily, I can, because the whole menu is served until 9pm.
