So many options

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... read 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

I have been here many times and the food has always been excellent. The service has been great too. Staff have been there for years and always very friendly! Weekends are busy but worth the wait.

The staff here is very friendly and efficient. This is not a place to go if you are in a hurry however. I ate here twice on my recent trip to Minneapolis and wait times for breakfast were longer than average and the food was nothing special, and a little overpriced. The Very Good rating is based solely on how... More

I get to the Original Pancake House once a month. I try to order something different every time because I have never had anything that wasn't excellent. You can eat everything from Breakfast to Lunch. The Restaurant is only open until 3pm. Also, the service has always been very good.

I rarely eat out for breakfast, but the Original Pancake House is at the top of my list. I enjoy the variety of pancakes or near pancakes that are offered. I could never make these at home. Our children enjoy the meals they have had as well! There is a great deal of variety in offerings both main and sides.

Thanks to other recommendations on tripadvisor tried this restaurant. Everything was delicious. The 4-egg omelette and a side of their homemade hash was plenty to split for two people. Coffee was fresh and delicious. Definitely recommend.

I make great pancakes so wouldn't order them from a restaurant, but they have so much more and everything is fantastic. My pickiest son recommended this place for the hash browns, and their apple crepes are top shelf. Get the full order so you can enjoy them at home, they reheat really well. The menu is extensive and everything is... More

Went on a Tuesday morning so got right in. Coffee was hot and robust. Pecan pancakes were light and scrumptious. A great value and would for sure return.

When we want a really good breakfast, our favorite restaurant is always Original Pancake House. Generally it's a place my husband and I go when it's just the two of us, but it's always a great place to go as a family too. The hashbrowns are amazing and their bacon is thick and awesome. We've never had a miss.
