Banana pancakes are simply amazing. Atmosphere is pleasant and warm. I have never had poor service but like all places, some staff are more friendly then others. The biggest problem I have with this place is the price of the orange juice. It is way out of line.

How can one pancake house be so much better than the rest? It is only pancakes and eggs, and some sides. Well how can Jack Kanes Kris restaurant be better than McDonald's! It is all about how they put their breakfast and lunch together and make special,special treats that are so much better than anyone else. I love the omlettes.... More

Good, old fashioned, soul filling breakfast food. I will say from the top that I think their bacon outshines any of the skinny, lifeless stuff that most places serve. The omelets are fantastic. In the fall, the pumpkin pancakes are to die for. Wonderful to be able to have fresh squeezed orange juice. Go early or late. Always crowded!!

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.
