Borodino is very well known for the traditional pancake breakfasts put on by the Borodino Fire Department on Nunnery Road.
Who can resist a $6 all-you-can-eat breakfast with eggs made to order, scrambled eggs, sausage, orange juice, coffee, chocolate milk and, of course, the New Hope Mills pancakes?
With another successful pancake season just coming to a close, we checked in with the Borodino Fire Department to see how they did this summer.
The department served more than 3,910 people this summer, serving up more than 10,000 pancakes.
Newly engaged couple, Pete Thomas and Emily Stewart, enjoyed the last pancake breakfast of the season on Sunday.
"I've been coming to these Borodino Pancake Breakfasts for over 20 years. I love the food. It's a perfect way to relax with the community after church," Thomas said.
Despite the rise in food costs, especially the rising cost of eggs and pancake flour, the Borodino Fire Department has been able to keep the breakfasts affordable. Kids ages 5 and under are still free, kids ages 6 to 12 are just $4, seniors pay $5 and all others over the age of 12 are $6.
If you haven't been to a Borodino Pancake Breakfast, be sure to go to one next year. The breakfasts are scheduled for the fourth Sunday of each month of June, July, August and the Sunday after Labor Day Weekend.
