While we’re sure you already have the beautiful day marked with a big red X on your calendar, let us remind you that next Tuesday is Pancake Tuesday.
Y’know, the tastiest day of the year? To celebrate, Gino’s Gelato is giving away FREE crêpes to customers between 9am-12pm Tuesday the 13th and it’s the best goddamn news we’ve heard all week.
You can grab free sugar and lemon crêpes in any of their 15 locations nationwide including Galway, Waterford, Arklow and Newbridge or in their stores across Dublin (apart from Gino’s Gelato Jervis Shopping Centre and Gino’s Gelato Liffey Valley as they don’t do crepes there *cries*).
The gelato specialists offer an extensive range of crêpes from the traditional to the extraordinary with favorites including Gino’s Chocolate Oreo Crêpe –Crushed Oreos, White Chocolate Sauce, Fresh Cream and Gino’s Melted Oreo Variegato, Gino’s Special – Nutella, Sliced Banana and Chopped Strawberries or the Traditional – Lemon, Butter & Sugar.
We are WEAK at the sight of these crepes…

So, what’s the difference between pancakes and crepes? The main difference is that pancake batter has a raising agent in it, such as baking powder or baking soda, and crepe batter doesn’t. This means that pancakes are thicker and fluffy while crêpes are thin and flat. Generally, pancakes are associated with being ‘American-style’ while crêpes are the European take on the breakfast favourite.
Arrive early to avoid disappointment!
