Whenever you see a waiting line Monday - Sunday for 1 hour + you know it's an amazing option. It's common to see other people waiting in line from the Los Angeles / San Diego area just to taste the amazing food served at the Original Pancake House. Just like the name says, it's a house converted into a small... More

They do not have this chain on the east coast of Canada, so we were apprehensive to try it. Wow I'm glad we did! The bacon is HUGE! Pancakes are amazing, and the coffee kept coming. Even though we had a free continental breakfast at our hotel, we went here every morning instead!

I've been coming here for years, probably over 20 years, and cannot believe I never wrote a review. Quite honestly this is not my favorite OPH. Its a small restaurant, terrible parking, and extremely crowded on weekends. I don't even get their pancakes, but their Belgian Waffles. So why do I come here? The service. Back in the day, the...

I’ve been a fan of the Original Pancake House (OPH) for a long time, and have been going more frequently in the last couple of years because my girlfriend is a fan, too, especially of their potato pancakes and thick-cut bacon. I recently visited this location in Anaheim for the first time, and it turned out to be the oldest... More

We stopped in for breakfast before heading to Disneyland. The apple pancakes kept me going all day and well into the night. Nice large portions, I couldn't even eat it all, and I'm a 6' male. The rest of the family had eggs, bacon, different pancakes and a crepe. None of us finished our meal. Prices very reasonable.

Solid old fashioned place for pancakes, eggs, and so on with moderate prices. Loved the greasy skillet with eggs, ground beef, and melted swiss.

Wanted something away from the touristy center of Anaheim and found this gem of a restaurant. The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff was friendly and super efficient. This is a busy place, so expect a wait, but it will be well worth it!

The Original is a great choice for breakfast with good food, reasonable prices, and friendly service. It's popular with locals and tourists alike, so get there early or be prepared to wait.

Went with 9 other's and was accommodated rather quickly for such a large group including one in a wheelchair. The food was so very good! If I lived near here, this would be my breakfast spot every Sunday. The food is wonderful. Everyone got something different and I can't remember all 10 dishes, but everyone of them were wonderful.
