The only negative about this restaurant is that we always choose to go when everyone else does too: usually Sunday late morning. However, you can place your name in line so that your wait is less than it might be. Last Sunday instead of 60-75 minutes, we had a 25 minute wait. They provide etch-a-sketch and other items to entertain... More

I eat at OPH every chance I get when traveling. I am addicted to the omelets. I now drink coffee and their's was the best coffee I've ever drank. It was smooth and flavorful. I tried the Dutch baby and since I make those at home, it was as expected--good! I had it with strawberries and bananas and split the... More

You really can't go wrong with this place for a great breakfast. Bust about everything on the menu is prepared fresh and the selection is extensive. Try the lemon pancakes with fresh blueberries and blueberry sauce, or home made corn beef hash. It is the best I've eaten in a long while.

Fresh squeezed orange juice. Pancake choices galore. Fluffy baked omelets & THICK meaty bacon......is there anything left to say?? Get there early though because the wait can be long....but definitely worth it!!

We were told 30 min and it took 1 hour to seat. If you tell someone a time you should let people know it changes. If you need breakfast and are traveling I would not suggest this place.

We eat here when my mother comes in town. Great service and delicious food. Get the "no wait app" before going here; they usually have a long wait time, so this app is a must

If you are looking for a great breakfast place in Chesterfield this is your best bet! A little on the expensive side if comparing to Denny's, IHOP etc but worth every penny! Make sure to (besides the pancakes) try their freshly squeezed orange juice and corned beef hash! Great quality and great service! Also: they cater for gluten free!! They... More
