Try The Continental Crepes!

I just read a review by a gentleman who did not like these crepes. I have to tell you, I do not live in the area and I am glad about that. BECAUSE, if I lived close to this place I would weigh 300 pounds. This dish was fabulous and I have been craving it ever since I left! The... read more

I found this online, looking for a nice please to breakfast on our trip to Disneyland. And God we loved it, portions are HUGE, not that we are big fans of that, but it was funny, but also, their cooks know their business. Omelets are huge, and really delicious, we especially love the Spanish Omelet. Our server was super friendly,... More

We had to wait about 30 minutes on a Friday morning, but it was worth it. I got the apple pancake: warning it takes like 30 minutes to bake. I didn't realize I ordered that until we had been waiting a long time. It was good, shared it. tasted like a dessert though. My daughter got the pigs in a... More

I always see a line of people outside the door on weekends so I decided to go early on Saturday as they open at 6am. Got there at 7:30am and was seated immediately, yay! Had the best corned beef ever! Also enjoyed the Apple Pancake which was really really good with fresh apple slices. If you have a large group... More

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
