The OPH is always an excellent place for quality breakfast featured items and staff services. Over 20-years of visits, and never a meal or service disappointment.

We have driven from Maryland up to New York on vacation and eaten breakfast at many locations. The Original Pancake House has been by FAR the best place we've eaten. The service was great and the food was heavenly. We will drive out of our way to go to another one!

A Dutch baby pancake, a superb mushroom omelette, served with fresh and delicious hot coffee and friendly service. Avoid peak times and you'll enjoy it even more.

Less than great service, but the food is so awesome, I don't really care. We go to the Pancake house once or twice a month for breakfast. Like most people we go on the weekends. Let me say this, if you don't get there before 9, you're going to wait and you're probably going to have a grumpy waitress or... More

I lived in this area, and moved away about a few years ago. I had always had a great experience here, and was so excited to return with my girlfriend. How disappointing this experience was. The overall condition of the inside is grimy and tired looking. The poached eggs were served swimming in a bowl of water, and poorly cooked.... More

If you are ever in Buffalo visiting it is worth a trip out to the burb of Williamsville to go here for Breakfast/Brunch. The "Dutch Baby" and the "Apple Pancake" (that isn't a pancake at all) are extraordinary - one-of-a-kind menu items. And the OJ is fresh-squeezed. The omelets are also quite nice.

Went on a busy Sunday morning. Waiting area was overflowing. Five of us were seated within 10 minutes. Ordered the Apple Pancake, one of their specialties. Absolutely fantastic creation, filled with sliced apples and cinnamon and topped with a glaze. Large enough to feed three people. Even though it is over an hour drive from my home, will definitely be... More
