Great place for a family breakfast.

My Girls and I went there on a Saturday morning. Had to wait a bit but it was worth it. We all had Omlets and Pancakes and loved the food and quick service.

Food was very good. Apple pancake was excellent. The wait was pretty long, and we were there by 8am on a Sunday. It isn't that cheap, so between the wait and the prices it only got an average rating.

I am a long time customer of The Original. Their pancakes are light and tasty. Their meats are fresh and high quality. The fruit is fresh. The place is roomy. Service is always Johnny-on-the-spot without being overbearing. Coffee flows freely. Negatives are that parking is sometimes a bit lacking. But you can always go to other spots in the area.... More

The only thing disappointing about OPH is the fact that there is always a line. But it is definitly worth the wait. Restaurant can get a bit claustraphobic. Food is good. Basted Eggs are so good. Their Corned Beef hash is pretty tasty.

We've gone to this restaurant many times and it's always a very pleasant experience. The food is delicious the ingredients are truly fresh. The orange and grapefruit are truly fresh squeezed. The servings are generous i.e. the omelettes are huge and they serve at least 6-7 pancakes per plate. There are many choices that are sweet and savory. They are... More

I have been to a few OPH locations in my home state and ended up at the Redondo Beach location during a recent trip with family. The service was great, the facility was clean, and the food was delicious - just as I have come to expect from the locations back home. OPH has the best plain pancakes I've ever... More

This place was very busy lot of people. Their menu is quite basic and everything is at an extra. Our waiter did not get everything we ordered he missed some items, and took three other orders after ours. Everyone else got their items first we were the last ones.

This is the best Breakfast place in the beach area for anyone who loves Pancakes or Crepes ! They also do great Omelets; the rest is also good, not amazing though. You cannot excel is everything... Their Crepes are amazing - Strawberries are fresh - Blueberries are good too , yet not fresh. I like to mix Strawberry & Blueberry... More

The OPH is always there as it has been for the last few decades. Eggs like you like'em, pancakes that are cuttable with your fork, not a fork lift and bacon as you ordered. Your coffee cup is always full. What else can I say about a breakfast place.
