We visited here for breakfast based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and our high expectations were exceeded! We waited a little while for a table but that was expected for Saturday morning. This place is very clean, efficient and offers wonderful service. My husband's omelet was huge -- and tasty. The applesauce served with my potato pancakes was... More

Again, went with majority of reviews on TripAdvisor and you all were absolutely right again! This is a delicious little place out by the mall. We had been to the area several times before to visit and wish we had found this place sooner. This is obviously a very popular place with the locals. They have the cutest coffee cups... More

I have never had a better thin sliced pancake (the 49ers) anywhere. Try it with lemon and powdered sugar. Mike in Edina and Eden Prairie, MN

Good food, great bacon, slightly pricey. My girl loves the place. Interesting selection of pancakes - only real potato pancakes I know of in town.

Stopped in with my partner for breakfast after flying into Minneapolis because of the great TripAdvisor reviews. After eating there it's safe to say they were all completely accurate! The service was excellent. Our server Kay was always there when we needed her, was prompt, and friendly throughout our visit. The food was the best part though. The pancakes were... More

The Original Pancake House is wonderful. Cozy atmosphere, great food, great selection, good coffee, good service, and decent prices. The only downside is that there can be and usually is a long wait.

We went on a Sunday at 10 AM expecting to wait but the food sounded wonderful. We only waited 20 min and were pleasantly surprised at the greatness of the food. Pancakes were some of the best ice ever tasted. Delicious hashbrowns and thick bacon. Good chorizo all made up for lackluster service. Would Go again if ever near the... More

Excellent food, service, seating, etc. It was a cold day in Minnesota but hot drinks were available in waiting room. Waitress was courteous, knowledgable, helpful, and pleasant.

We came here directed by reviews. I was skeptical about doing it but we arrived around noon on a Sunday right after Christmas. They were bustling! It took about 45 minutes to get a table but then came the coffee- yay! We ordered the omelet souffles with pancakes. It is the perfect balance! Also I must suggest that you get... More

We love the pancakes, the hash browns, and the omelets. Well actually, we have not had a dish here we didn't like. Go early but plan to wait... This place gets busy.
