Great pancakes. And quite a large selection. I had the Eggs Michael and my wife had the pumpkin pancakes. Both were excellent. Went early on a Saturday morning and there was no crowd.

Any kind of pancakes and waffles with eggs and bacon! Blueberry pancakes are my favorite anywhere.. theirs are the best (except for mine. Kids are happy campers here. Service is good, at times slow, but it's worth the wait.

I'd had high hopes for this restaurant and kind of like a little kitsch but this was too much and too little at the same time. Too much money for what you get and too little service and flavor. I just can't imagine why this place gets such good reviews! The menu is quite limited and we quickly realized this... More

Food was good, but the menu was limited and prices a little to high for breakfast fare. There are better breakfast places in town.

THE Original Pancake House in Portland was started by Les Highet and he was. Short that is. But only in stature. Quite the task master. And this guy was a giant in figuring out a breakfast formula that could be duplicated without the typical plummeting of quality. Both the Bend and Redmond locations are owned by the same couple and... More

I tried the apple pancake and it was HUGE. Almost never do I leave food on the plate but I could not finish it off. It was quite tasty but also very sweet and that was probably why I had enough.

The breakfasts are outstanding and large. One order provides plenty to takehome some for the next day. Ingredients always seem fresh. Atmosphere is average...loud and open. Service varies each time you go in; some of the gals work their buns and proved good, friendly service. The next visit may be just the opposite. But, if you don't mind taking schance... More
