I had to set up a breakfast meeting with clients who were flying in early for a mid-day conference we were attending. My search for a breakfast place that opened early took me to the Original Pancake House, and I just had to hope it would be OK. Turned out it was perfect: in fact one client who has family... More

We stopped here immediately before our first day at Disneyland because I had read reviews of the huge portion sizes and wanted my family to have fuel for our day. We were not disappointed!! The hashbrowns were delicious, the French toast amazing and of course the pancakes were the best I've eaten! The staff was so friendly, which I was... More

This place was our last restaurant we ate at in Anaheim! And it was our fave! We had a huge party eating with us so we tried almost everything, small menu choices, and everything was delicious! Especially the banana pancakes!! They also had good bacon pancakes for my bacon lover daughter!! The atmosphere was small and loud which was perfect... More

Much better than expected or advertised. Don't be fooled by the exterior. Quick service, reasonable prices. The apple pancake is not to be missed, and not to be attempted alone; two people minimum to finish it.

never write reviews, but now I must. read all the glowing reports of Orig Pan House, and made the extra trip from Disland instead of going to Mimi's 1 block away. It is true that the food is tasty and the portions are large, but the place is run down and dirty: Cheetos wrapper in front garden area; weeds in... More

This is an Anaheim gem not to be missed if you have a car while you're in the Anaheim area. Kids will love it and the portions, food quality and service are amazing! The very retro interior just adds to the charm. Although the pancakes were as excellent as you'd hope, I was most happy with the hash browns! Shredded... More

Well, I guess you have to consider where you are staying, however, the service was bad, the food took a long time to be delivered and some of it was not cooked!!! We did complain and they gave us a bit of a discount. Won't go here again!

We met a friend for breakfast on a Saturday at 10:30 am and waited 45 minutes for a table but man was the breakfast good! Not sure if I would wait 45 minutes again given that there is a few other locations in the surrounding cities but I would definitely return to any of the locations for breakfast! We ate... More

We tried it and it was really good. Me, wife and two young daughters visited this place and ordered the cheese omelet and bacon omelet they serve them with three pancakes. We waited about 25 minutes to be served. They close at 2pm. We spent about $37

We decided to get out of the crowds of Disney and hit this place for breakfast for my daughters 16th birthday. About 10 minutes away and so glad we did it! HUGE portions. My daughter had the coconut pancakes that could have seriously fed all 9 of us! Hubs and I split the Irish omelet which we totally enjoyed and... More
