In one of my recent visits to the Eden Prairie area, I stayed in the Spring Hill Suites. I asked them if there were any good breakfast joints around and they referred me to this place. This was the best thing that happened to me during the visit. The place was simply superb. As some folks have mentioned earlier, sometimes... More

This restaurant is worth waiting for if you plan on ordering one of their signature pancakes on the menu. Although these pancakes take a little extra time for the chef to prepare, you won't leave hungry. My son, who is 10, learned what it meant when his pancake "fell" and he actually realized what the term meant. My daughter loved... More

We stopped by while traveling and as always enjoyed a great breakfast. Good coffee which just keeps coming, as well as a wonderfully varied menu. They have some pretty awesome bacon as well as any variety of pancakes. The only downside to the place is that the word is out and you can expect it to be busy. Yet even... More

This is my second time visiting and the results were the same. I always read how incredible the food and service is however, I leave wishing it was better. The service is top notch, no question! The food to me is just bland and average at best. I love the atmosphere and professional staff and will come back for a... More

Loved our waitress and the fresh food! The eggs Benedict and hashbrowns were made fresh and arrived super fast. We were truly impressed that you didn't have to wait so long and it tasted so good. We found out they buy fresh ingredients from the farmer's market. Well done delicious breakfast.

I love the Original Pancake house! They have a nice size menu and the food is awesome! Their omelettes are huge, my husband loves them! The only thing I would say is that they do get really busy, so it is best to call ahead. On a Saturday morning you will most likely have to wait if you don't. But... More

We have tried to go to the Edina location 3x and have never had the patience for the wait times. My tip to you is to call ahead and get put on the list to reduce your wait time (952-224-9440 for Eden Prairie). If this helped you, please give me a helpful vote. My wife liked the multi colored hand... More

Husband I checked OPH out for breakfast, so many options to pick from. I wasn't sure what to order so many things looked good. I ended up ordering banana caramel french toast. It was so filling wasn't able to eat it all. It was very good though. Husband ordered the low carb, eggs, bacon, and cottage cheese. Bacon is delicious,... More

We were all very cranky by day 4 of vacation. The staff at our hotel recommended OPH for our much needed coffee and pancakes. The staff was awesome and clearly sensed our crankiness. We sat outside, where the coffee kept flowing and the kids kept busy. Once our breakfast arrived, you could feel the mood of the entire family go... More
