Waffles or Pancakes?

Yesterday, while eating breakfast, I happened upon a Travel Channel show on the best breakfast places in the US and it mentioned a particular division between people who preferred pancakes and those who preferred waffles...apparently, they failed to mention the French Toast or Cinnamon Roll contingent, but it was only an hour-long show, after all.

So, I started thinking about it, and to be honest, although I love the occasional Belgian Waffle, I have to admit that when I make something like that at home, I prefer to make pancakes. This is probably partly due to the fact that I have fond memories of my mother patiently making them for me every single day for three months, while I recovered from glandular fever one summer, but all in all, I still really loved them anyway.

So, which do you prefer, for when you want a *sweet* breakfast (and this meal, obviously, can come at any time of day, since I don't generally eat breakfast foods for breakfast, anyway and prefer savory ones)? Waffles? Pancakes? French toast? Cinnamon rolls? And do you prefer them homemade, like I do, or do you have a favorite place that makes them *just right*?
