Always great food!

I am not a person that loves franchise restaurants but Original is a true exception. I eat at Original anywhere I travel. At the Edina restaurant they have an extra room in the back to handle the over- flow. This place is so busy whenever you go. We usually call in and put our names on a wait... read more

Great breakfast, large portions, nice atmosphere, great service, and worth it! It's better to arrive early on the weekend unless you don't mind waiting. And honestly, the portions are large! My hash browns were the size of a small plate.

Really nice breakfast food and is very well run and always busy.... Seasonal fruits in german pancakes are great, omlette's are big and filled full of whatever you like... Not a bargain breakfast, plan to spend $15-20 per person...But always try a side of double apple wood smoked bacon.... and the hash browns are very good with a hint of... More

They have an extensive vegan and gluten free menu (see pics)! Vegan is especially hard to find when it comes to breakfast food so going there is a real treat! My friend had banana pancakes and I had the pecan pancakes. I've also tried their french toast and regular pancakes in the past and would say the pecan were my... More

We arrived at this restaurant around 10 am on a Tuesday and there was already a line but it moved relatively fast. Everyone from the host to our server was very friendly. The food was very good and eye pleasing. From tasty hot chocolate, chocolate chips and whip cream to eggs Benedict with potato pancakes yum ! The menu is... More

The wait it worth it. Cozy atmosphere. Generous helpings. The bacon is incredibly thick! The apple pancake is more like a desert than breakfast.

We loved this place. We waited 20 minutes for a table but it was worth it. The food was great. Prices are reasonable. The wait staff are very nice. We are so glad we checked this place out. You won't be disappointed.

Even with a reservation, it was a very long wait for a weekend breakfast, but Worth It! Check out the Gluten Free menu on their website. Most of our party was not Gluten Free and everything was outstanding. Even with a full house the service was terrific. That's why everyone in Edina comes here for pancakes.

Went for late breakfast/lunch on a family visit. Many in our group had traditional breakfast which was great, two of us had the sandwiches and shared an incredible salad comprised of greens, cranberries, blue cheese, walnuts, red onion and a great sweet vinaigrette. Service perfect, and we were so shocked with the salads! Huge and so yummy, not something I... More

If you haven't heard already, this place has great breakfast. Coffee is ok..but the fresh squeezed orange is bomb dot com! This time I ordered the garden omelet, which is huge in size. Normally I ordered strawberry crepes but I needed some protein. The atmosphere is is great but lots of people. If you go on a weekend day, expect... More
