How can a breakfast joint have such bad coffee. Can anyone else taste that weird flavor? My potato pancakes were raw. They brought me more and they were burnt. The funny thing was, the burnt parts were hidden under the pancake above it. It could not have been an oversight, as they were quite notably black. We had bad experiences... More

This location is the only Original Pancake House I've been to, and I've eaten here at most seven or eight times in the last 20 years. There's always a wait, but it's usually not that bad. (Once you've waited two hours to have dumplings at Din Tai Fung, the wait at Original Pancake House will seem like nothing.) As most... More

Loved this place for amazing big American breakfasts. Eggs Benedict my fave - Hubby loved the omelettes and daughter enjoyed the pancakes - didn't need lunch so it was a great way to start our holiday days as we walked all day most days !!!

We tried this place out while vacationing in Los Angeles. Amazing!!! Fast service and friendly staff. The omelets are delicious but huge, you can easily share with someone and they also come with pancakes. Would definately come back. Good prices too.

Great pancakes and I enjoyed the diced ham and eggs. Good coffee and friendly servers. This place seemed to have lots of locals. Place was packed but service was quick.

I'm not a huge pancake lover, as a matter of fact, i rarely eat them. One morning my brother and his friends wanted to go have some breakfast so they chose this place. Normally i would just order some bacon, eggs, and toast but for some reason as i scanned through the menu the banana pancakes caught my eye. I... More

The best pancakes you'll ever eat. The pancakes run $8-11, which appears a bit steep at first, but it's a ton of food. I favor the 49er flapjacks, but also like the pecan pancakes and Dutch babies. Plan on splitting the apple pancake if you order that. I've never seen one person finish it by themselves. The omelets are terrific,... More

POTATO PANCAKES are memorable. Reasonable prices. This is not IHOP. It's a diner that I am looking forward to visiting again. Only open for breakfast, but they do breakfast extremely well.

If your like pancakes, this is the place. I recommend, the 49 er flapjacks, pecan pancakes, Dutch baby and the apple pancake. That last one's a whopper, so think about splitting it. Great bacon and giant omelets. Very attentive service, whether it's busy or not. It can get loud, so get a booth if you're with someone who has a... More
