Brandon’s Pancake House is Coming to the Wildwoods

A few months back we announced that The Doo Wop Drive-In, located at 6200 New Jersey Ave in Wildwood Crest, has closed its doors.

Opened by Doo Wop Coffee Shop owner, Jason Kramer, and his business partner, the restaurant offered unique and innovative breakfast options.

They will continue their amazing breakfast options down over at the Tangiers Cafe, located inside the Tangiers Motel. (6201 Atlantic Ave in Wildwood Crest)

This meant that the building that housed The Doo Wop Drive-In was left empty with no tenant until now.

For the past few weeks, the Wildwood Video Archive has been teasing that a new restaurant would be taking over the spot for the 2023 summer season.

Today we announced that Brandon’s Pancake House & Ice-Cream Parlor will be moving in.

The announcement came via their Facebook page inches owners Karl and Aimee Famiano introduced themselves an what they hope to do with the new location.

Karl has lived his childhood dream of opening a restaurant. According to his high school yearbook from 1997, K. Famiano always had a passion for the food industry. Alongside his wife, Aimee, the two have merged their dreams to not only fulfill Karl’s aspirations but to also create a special place for their son Brandon, who has brought joy to their lives.

Brandon, who the restaurant is named after, suffers from autism. They say that Brandon’s kindness is the inspiration for the restaurant.

For those who don’t know, Autism, also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. It is a spectrum condition, meaning that it affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. Some common characteristics of autism include difficulties in social communication and interaction, repetitive behaviors or interests, and challenges with sensory processing.

The Famiano’s hope to help employ individuals with disabilities, such as autism, to give them a chance to be successful and to learn life skills.

At this time Brandon’s Pancake House & Ice-Cream Parlor doesn’t have a menu online yet but some preview photos have been posted online showing a breakfast platter and an omelet.

There is no opening date as of yet but be sure to tune back later for more details.

We wish the Famiano’s the best of luck with their restaurant!
