Fresh ingredients including fresh squeezed orange juice. Plenty of food worth taking home leftovers. Apple pancakes are the best!

Long time fan of this place and first TA review. Eggs, Waffles, House Specialty Sausage, Bacon, fresh 100% OJ and pancakes ARE delicious...PERIOD. From their specialty Dutch Baby to their unbeatable specialty delicious Belgian Waffles and everything in between you can't go wrong...except to be late. Be warned, this place gets packed early and for good reason. It is worth... More

My wife and I finally went there for lunch last weekend after driving by many times saying we should try that place sometime. What a great choice! There is usually quite a line though. We ordered our food, didn't take to long, even though they were packed. The bacon was my favorite! Thick and in between chewy and crunchy! The... More

We love this restaurant - especially the buckwheat pancakes, real maple syrup and the great thick-sliced bacon. We feel the prices for the food are fair for the quality. However, we were pretty shocked to see that a cup of coffee (not espresso or fancy - just black coffee) cost us $2.60 per cup. Of course, we cannot eat bacon,... More

Bacon, Eggs Pancakes & Coffee. We sure appreciate the mention about our breakfast, we work hard everyday to make everything the best we can including having the coffee roasted and ground just for OPH. Yes, it's a bit more but well keep your hand made pottery cup full with pots we brew all day and fresh cream. By the way... More

The food was good, but the place gets packed on the weekend mornings. And I found the prices to be really high. Breakfast for two, should not be in the thirty dollar range.

Visited 11/10 at 8 AM with a group of 17, including 5 children. I've been to the location in South Bend and just loved it, so when I was visiting for a family member's birthday this suggestion won for breakfast. My wife ordered the German pancake and I got the pumpkin pancakes. Both were great! The pumpkin cake came covered... More

I love this place. They have the best pancakes I have ever had. I've never had something I don't like - Hawaiian, Georgia Pecan, chocolate chip, banana, hash browns, smoked salmon, and especially their coffee. Even if you don't typically don't use syrup, you have to try the tropical kind.

Checked out the new Original Pancake House on Ladue Road this week. Man, the pancake are awesome -- and what a variety. I had buckwheat (yum), one friend had plain with ham and eggs (tasty but WAY too much food for one) and another friend had the wheat germ pancakes which she said were superb. Coffee was good.

Feel like having breakfast? Try the Original Pancake House in the valley. I've tried the pancakes, french toast, waffles, eggs, bacon and wheat toast as well as the fresh squeezed orange juice. All items are exceptionally good! The servers are friendly, attentive and efficient. It is definitely a treat, always a pleasure. Seasonal fresh fruit is a nice touch.
