Here in Western N.Y. there is an amazing place called The Maple Tree Inn. It is only open when the sap flows, from late february to early April. All you can eat buckwheat pancakes that are very fluffy, almost like buttermilk ones, but with that buckwheat flavor. the sausagge is from a local butcher shop and very tasty. All syrup is pure fresh maple. I recommend this to anybody who lives in the Northeast, worth the drive. I have met people from as far as Montreal. It is about 1 1/2 hours south of Rochester in Angelica.
