Capitalizing on Candy The Reese’s Pieces pancakes came purely by chance to the menu at Easy Street Café in German Village, when owner George Stefanidis received a bulk shipment of the candy by mistake about 14 years ago. “I’m a big fan of peanut butter and chocolate,” says Stefanidis. It was perfect timing for experimentation, since the café had recently added a brunch menu. Stefanidis added the Reese’s Pieces to some pancakes, and a popular dish was born. The candies are baked into a buttermilk pancake and topped with maple syrup. And out of five pancakes on the menu, Reese’s Pieces is No. 1 in popularity, Stefanidis says. -Sarah Sole
