Good portions, good taste, busy place...

Wanting to have breakfast but running rather late, we decided to head to the Original Pancake House as they are open until 2pm daily. I went with the diced ham & scrambled eggs while the wife tried the Irish Omelet. It looked huge and she gave me a bite. On our next visit, I'll probably get that... read more

As always, great food! This time however we arrived closer to noon and the crowds had already eaten and left the building. We were seated immediately (The 1st time that's happened!) and enjoyed the good service and the tasty food. As usual, the wife brought 2/3's of her diced ham & scramble eggs home, it was that big! I had... More

I had an amazing brunch here with some friends and with 8 dollars i ate three delicious blueberry pancakes with an egg side (or bacon, it's up to you). They serve you with coffee, water, syrups and butter. If you take a trip in Los Angeles you should stop here to try some original and delicious american pancakes!

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.

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.

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
