No wait, big portions, and a friendly waitress makes for a great breakfast. Will definitely be back, if we return to the area!

Pancake Man is a place we return to year after year more for tradition than desire. The food is average (your standard diner-style breakfast) and they have even added Gluten Free items to the menu (silver dollar pancakes!!). Don't think about getting creative with your ordering however, they have a VERY strict "no substitutions" policy regardless of if it's based... More

Although we ate at the Pancake Man on our vacation it is getting a little crazy for us. We stopped because they are the only location we could find with potato pancakes and mimosa. The meals are huge and the prices are following. I suggest if you are going stop in to eat you go family style, order a few... More

Excellent choice for breakfast. We stayed in Dennis Port but the 10 min drive was well worth it. Arrive early to beat the crowds (7am to 7:30 am). Delicious food, good coffee, friendly staff, fast service. The pancakes are light and fluffy, but not served with true maple syrup. Some of the menu options include pancakes on the side. The...

We go to the Pancake Man one time every summer. The place is always packed when we go there and seeing the standing room only makes it a little bit difficult to thoroughly enjoy your breakfast because you feel like others are constantly waiting for your table. The kitchen must be a madhouse because they have made mistakes on our... More

Good breakfast. Had veggie and cheese omelet and pancakes, which was awesome. Great flavor cheese and veggie scrambled into the egg of the omelet. Pancakes were good, nothing outstanding though. Also had potato pancakes which were alright, nothing special. Wife had sausage egg and cheese on english muffin, which she said was the best she has had on Cape. Restaurant... More
