    Love breakfast, best meal of the day! That said, I’m not a fan of carbs and try to eat them with moderation. French toasts is just too much for me, I look at them and see a heart failure coming up. Pancakes are a little better, I can go for a whole wheat option and add tons of berries to them to make them feel a little healthier.

    @letigre Yes fancify those pancakes or French toast!  I’m all for the stuffing and toppings.  As unhealthy as you can make them, the better.

    @MrsPanda99:  I agree. French toast can really be a hit or miss depending on who makes it so I would go with pancakes. Yum!

    ETA: are waffles an option? I LOVE waffles!

    I love french toast, but it doesn’t love me, so I would stick to pancakes to avoid GI issues.

    WAFFLES! They are the evolved brethren of pancakes.

    I am having a brunch reception as well!! I suggest setting up a tasting with your caterer and trying both. Whichever one he/she makes better, go with that one!

    Even though I like french toast better,  I think pancakes would be better off a buffet,  french toast gets blah if it sits too long.

    I voted french toast, but I agree with pps that if french toast isn’t right, it’s all the way wrong.

    Pancakes are less offensive even at their worst (like sitting in a warmer for hours).

    Waffles are a great idea because they can be made on the spot, at a station!  They need little to no supervision- just put the batter out with the irons and toppings and people can get them fresh!
