Petite Pancake Place

We headed to the Pancake House after receiving rude service at the Pink Pony and we were not disappointed! My daughter wanted fresh fruit for breakfast. This is hard to come by on the Island and is usually expensive. She was delighted to find a huge fresh fruit salad at a great price. The fruit... read more

This is the place to go for breakfast on the island. The pancakes are huge (an order could feed a family of four), and the prices seem a bit high, but the quality is food. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Definitely great place to eat.

We had breakfast here one morning and they had the largest omelets I had ever seen, and they were excellent! Good service and a pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again. I had a veggie omelet stuffed with hash browns and my friend had a meat lovers omelet, both were awesome.

To me, there's nothing better than a good, basic breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast. This was our go to place for breakfast, and it always satisfied.

It is a small restaurant, but they accommodated our large group. The service was good. The food was okay. Cooked to order, plentiful, but nothing super special. We would return for breakfast, but it isn't something to rave about.

The restaurant was just across the street from our hotel, so we had omelettes here one morning, and we weren't sorry! My husband and I both ordered meat lovers, and they came packed with ham, sausage and wonderful bacon. Good coffee, excellent food in a cute diner-like setting. We will go back.

We stopped into the Pancake House this morning for breakfast and they were super busy - even considering it's the end of season. So my husband and I walked out, then we realized that Ryba's fudge shop was connected. The waitress politely told me that they weren't seating on that side. Then, One of the managers or perhaps owner said... More

My daughter had the blueberry pancakes... 3 huge, hot off the griddle, laden with berries. I had the perfect skillet: Really crispy hash browns, really crispy bacon, perfect amount of cheese topped with piping hot scrambled eggs. It was a dreary, blustery day on the island and this breakfast really hit the spot.

Quick, good food, great malt waffles, and happy servers. Not a big place, but well worth the stop! It was the perfect place to review the shopping list, have a good meal to start the day.
