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

Ordered the Blueberry Pancakes with Blueberry syrup. Best Blueberry pancakes I have ever had. Prices were not to bad but could have been a little cheaper. Pancakes were smaller in size.

Went with husband and four kids for my stepsons birthday breakfast. We arrived to a long line which we expected. But the wait seemed to drag on forever. After about 50 minutes or so I suggested to my husband that he check in on status. Good thing! There was a missed handoff with the staff and even though we were... More
