Creme Brulee Cart Guy Hosts Free Pancake Night, Bernal Heights Turns Around

The owner of the famous creme brulee cart showered the Precita Park area with a big free pancake party, and he’ll have your butt kicking with a follow-up party this Saturday.

We’ve been tracking the exploits of the crème brûlée cart since 2009, when the owner of the burnt-out artisan on wheels first started popping up in San Francisco parks. Now, over ten years later, the cart has closed and the flow of gourmet custard has stopped in 2016. But Creme Brûlée Cart guy Branson Kimball had crazy hair and decided to throw a giant free pancake party near Precita Park last weekend. The party drew nearly 75 neighbors, according to KGO.

Powered by flour and leafletsKimball put on his goofy chef’s hat and drew a crowd with a pile of over 125 pancakes.

“I was just looking to connect with people,” Kimball told NewsNationNow. I was trying to find the lowest common denominator, something no one can be mad at and thought pancakes were the way to go.

The pancake party attracted the attention of all the media, including television coverage, clearly to the delight of Kimball’s young daughter. “It’s daddy! It’s TV daddy!” she exclaims in the video above.

Yes, girl, it’s Daddy TV.

Pancake fanatics will have another chance this coming Saturday, February 12, when Kimball does it again. Another pancake night from 9 to 11 a.m. on Alabama Street between Cesar Chacez and Precita Avenue, and you can follow the dedicated Twitter account @pancakeswfrnds for more information.
