They're both great for sure, but of the two, I think I'll have to go with waffles for their crispy flavor and because they hold syrup better... even though I've probably had more pancakes in my lifetime. Lol
Waffles! I find pancakes to be super boring lol. (Pancakes do win for being more fun to say in Japanese: パンケーキ Pankēki!)

I didn't even realize until a couple months ago that pancakes and waffles are effectively made from the same batter lol. I always thought waffles tasted better!

I tend to avoid both, though. My blood sugar tends to spike uncomfortably after I have waffles or pancakes, especially if they constitute a whole meal.
I like both but I prefer waffles without a doubt even if I eat them much less often than pancakes (I don't have a waffle iron :cry:). I love their crunchy texture :p.
Despite the name, pancakes. Theres this amazing pancake resturant by my house that make really good pancakes. But waffles are very good too
Neither are really breakfast foods where I live. I don't even remember the last time I ate waffles, so pancakes it is. I often eat pancakes but for dinner, which is pretty common here.
I love pancakes! It's so delicious and easy to make.
Waffles are paired well with ice cream or cream.
But I prefer pancakes.
Not too long ago, I was actually something of a waffle connoisseur, working the waffle maker like a master at their craft. Or so people said of me, haha. But nowadays, I’ve found that I’ve become more of a pancake person. Not really because I actually like pancakes better than waffles — they’re both great! — but rather because I’ve developed a preference for stuffing my pancakes with stuff like blueberries and such, and because I just enjoy that especially manual and personal process of putting batter on a griddle and watching fluff up into something beautiful and delicious! A waffle maker doesn’t quite deliver that kind of feeling for me anymore, I think.
Waffles have pockets, and the texture is more firm, which I like.
That being said, pancaked are still good too!
Best of the best are crepes. My mom makes good crepes, I need to learn how too
Absolutely this. The pockets retain praline and ice cream better, and the texture is just better.

So yeah team waffles here, but not that I would reject a pancake if that is the only option... Crepes are better to salty when you stuff things on the like cheese, bacon, sauce, even fries etc, not as dessert.
I think I’ve probably had too many pancakes that I’m tired of them. And I don’t think I’ve even had them in such a long time! Though, if I had the chance to try/eat an irregular pancake, I would definitely be up for it.

So, I’d have to go with waffles. Though, I definitely wouldn’t want frozen waffles unless I’m craving them for some reason. (Which does happen) I think I’d also prefer Belgian Waffles over the regular waffle. Though, maybe I haven’t tried a good version of each

Hot take but I usually go for French Toast with syrups over waffles or pancakes. If I had no choice of waffles or French toast, pancakes wouldn’t be something I would spit out. I can definitely still enjoy pancakes
