Simply the best breakfast in the Soothsay

This is our go-to spot for breakfast. Portions are large, the service is fast and friendly and the food is simply great. Large tasty pancakes, french toast and excellent breakfast burritos. On weekends, get there early and plan on waiting. My wife and I usually share something as there is plenty... read more

When planning our family vacation to San Diego from Rochester NY the Family House of Pancakes was my only must have. I always have the Machaca breakfast with the best refried beans ever.

You need to go very hungry because all servings are large. My daughter and I prefer to share something because the crepes are so good. But it is hard not to get anything other than pancakes. My husband loves the omelets, even though he has to bring half of it home. Can't think of a negative. Luckily we are now... More

Go hungry because the food is abundant and delicious. Great breakfast selections, large pancakes, lots of eggs, and good coffee.

I came here about 5 years ago, this time returned with our with kids (9 and 11). The key is to arrive early (before 8am), the place is small, very small, so it gets packed fast. It's a modest place, servers are attentive, food is served fast, taste is really good and portions are huge. The specialties are pancakes, waffles,... More

The Denver omelet and potatoes overflowed the big plate. I was glad for the choice between sautéed and raw vegetables. I chose raw. The crisp veggies helped to balance all of the cheese (which reminded me of Velveeta?)... cheese overwhelmed the fluffy egg. Service was fast and cheery. But the woman at the cash register didn't look at me or... More
