The name says it all. They have everything you would ever want in a pancake. My kids and I loved every bite. I especially liked their version of potato pancakes. Light and fluffy. The entire staff were helpful and friendly.

I treated myself to breakfast here last week. I had country potatoes with country gravy, grapefruit juice, and coffee. Everything was just okay. Service was a wee bit slower than usual but it was certainly not terrible. Prices are higher here than other wonderful breakfast places around Bend.

Great service. Great food. Worth the wait. We called ahead for reservation so we were seated pretty quick. The owner was amazing as well as staff. We will be going back often

We have been to many of these restaurants, always excellent, but this one is much cozier and quaint and they have terrific sausuge gravy, a bonus since I have not seen this in any other of the Original Pancake houses. My wife had her usual veggie omlet, huge as always and I had the eggs and bacon. If you have... More

We had breakfast which was good - home cooking and lots of food. It was fine for breakfast. Poached eggs were perfect.

The food is always good here and the staff is friendly and efficient. There is usually a wait but it seems to always take less time then the project. Bacon is unbelievably good! Lots of choices in pancakes and waffles.

I had the ever popular Joe and my husband had the corned beef hash. We both had fresh squeezed orange juice. The orange juice was by far the best part. My scramble tasted fairly good, but but the presentation of it looked disgusting. The side of pancakes were good too but the syrup was kinda bland. My husband's corn beef... More

Really good breakfast, always busy during breakfast hour. Not cheap, but top notch dutch babies and apple dutch babies. Bacon is good and thick sliced, not rewarmed see-through skimpy pieces. Best bet for breakfast in Bend.

So glad we decided to skip the continental breakfast offered by our hotel and head here for breakfast instead! Our coffee mugs never fell below half full, and our generous breakfast plates were AMAZING! Swedish pancakes, bacon pancakes, and Dutch baby (AKA German egg pancake) was out of this world! Not crazy about their corned beef hash, but that can... More

Breakfast at 7:00 on Monday morning. I had the ham and eggs and I have never seen a slab (rather than a slice) of ham this big. It hung off the plate and was delicious. My wife had the bacon waffle which had malt flour in the mix along with, what else, BACON. It was also delicious. Great for breakfast... More
