Original Pancake house

This place is great for breakfast but expect to wait, always a line. The pancakes are great and everything else too. To avoid the line/wait I would go to Perkins. Almost as good and shorter wait time.

Fresh ingredients, well trained staff and good selection on the breakfast and lunch menu. many business deals have been made in this restaurant. Can be busy on weekends. Call ahead to get on a faster wait list.

Stopped in for a late breakfast last weekend. Great coffee while you wait (and you will wait for a table). Prompt and courteous service once seated. Order the house specialty Apple pancake as an app to share with the table (of course you need an appetizer at breakfast) and order your favorites from there. The omelette are 4 eggs deep... More

This is by far the best breakfast I have ever had. The soufflé omelettes are huge and so great. The thick cut bacon is a great add on to the meal. The omelette with the pancakes is a lot of food but save room for at least one it is worth it.

Yes, the wait can be long, but it is worth it. Go on an off day, not Saturday or Sunday mornings and you typically get get right in. Great food, especially the hashbrowns cooked crispy. But everything's good, so pick freely. Great staff! Miss the old style waffle that was light, thin and ultra delicious. This place rocks!

Whenever you arrive at OPH - unless it's before 7:30 am, be prepared to wait -- especially on the weekends. It's annoying but there is a reason people pack the reception area and parking lot waiting for a table. Best pancakes around and the hash browns - OMG. And the bacon - best in town. While I love the plain... More

The Original Pancake House in Edina, MN is extremely popular. The only negative that I could mention is that it is hard to get in without a wait, and can be noisy. Since they are only open for breakfast and lunch the best time to go is a bit after 1:30 in the afternoon. For breakfast it is best to... More

We were in town and drove by this place. Thought we'd give it a whirl the next morning. Read on here that it gets crazy busy at 10:00, so we showed up about 9. Got in but it was busy. Service was kinda slow, but again . . . it was busy. I ordered some corned beef hash, which was... More

So many different kinds of pancakes to choose from its hard to decide. I ended up getting the swedish pancakes which were a very thin pancake with a lingonberry sauce

Whenever someone wants a recommendation for a great breakfast place, this is the number one choice we offer. We've never had a bad meal at the Edina location or the Eden Prairie location. Although you may have a wait, you can phone ahead and get on the list to cut your waiting time. There are too many great food options... More
