Lucky us - we live just over a mile from Nick's!

As you might imagine from their name, Nick's Original House of Pancakes menu is almost entirely breakfast fare. I've occasionally ordered pancakes, especially the pumpkin pancakes available seasonally in the fall. But generally I try to avoid high carbohydrate meals which leads me to sticking with... read more

We were in town for a skating event and saw some flyers at the rink for Nick’s. We decided to visit before leaving town on Sunday morning. Even though Sundays are typically the peak day for breakfast places, Nicks was efficient at getting people in and out. Most people wait outside and the hostess will walk outside calling names which... More

From Fat Elvis French Toast to the Sweetie Pie Skillet everything is delicious! Expect to wait in line if you're a late riser but the food is worth it. Service can sometimes be slow with coffee refills but good things come to those who wait!

When Nick opened this place, Ann Arbor received a wonderful gift! We usually eat there once a week for breakfast. Portions are so large my husband and I usually split the omelette breakfast. My daughter loves their strawberry waffles. Servers are attentive and do a great job. They have good pancakes and lots of other great breakfast items. They are... More

In moving to Ann Arbor, I went with work friends. It was a diner driven place compete with the casual atmosphere the omelettes and service are great! Really enjoyed it for a casual place...

I liked the large selection of pancakes, bennies and other egg dishes here. Service was friendly and efficient and even offered a free fill up on my diet soda. Definitely beats the hotel breakfasts and is reasonably priced as well.

SUMMARY: Great American breakfast with healthy portions. But why can't places like this invest in proper coffee? Why do I have to bring my own cappuccino? THE GOOD: Solid American breakfast. Nice waiters. THE BAD: Please serve decent coffee! I won't come back until you do. Portion sizes are too big to be considered healthy.

I'm at a loss to understand the people who rave about the quality of this restaurant. It's extraordinarily expensive and the food is just passable. I actually think McDonald's and Denny's serves up a better breakfast for 1/3 to 1/2 the price. I'll never go back.

Hung over? This is the alcohol absorbing breakfast of your dreams. Great pancakes and good bacon can cure anything. get your banana pecan cakes or your ace omelette and waffles and french toast. Heck they have a monte cristo!

My wife and I went for breakfast here they have a great breakfast selection . I had an awesome pecan waffle and my wife had pancakes and eggs and hashbrowns. They also offered some good daily specials and the prices seemed reasonable. I prefer Nick,s to IHOP. We will be back !
