This historic building, distinguished by its large pillars, has been part of the Sylvan Beach landscape for over 100 years. It was originally Sylvan Beach’s Post Office and General Store. “Pancake House” is a center point of the beach and popular among tourists and the community. Lynn Rizzo Cifonelli and Dan Cifonelli purchased the building and business in 2016 and gave this iconic eatery a new “old” look.
