Just like Oma's!

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!

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

Great place for a quick and delicious breakfast. I had the pecan stuffed pancakes. They were fluffy and delicious. Went here with my husband and parents and all of us loved our food. Highly recommended.

We stumbled upon this pancake house when leaving Bend, OR. We had one of the best breakfasts here. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. They gave recommendations on the food and places to see in Bend. We loved it so much we wanted to find more of these pancake houses along our trip! I had French crepes with strawberries... More

We loved the atmosphere: plate collection along the wall, stoneware coffee mugs, and servers in old-fashioned uniforms. What we didn't love was the food. We ordered pancakes, as we thought they would be incredible due to the restaurant's name. They were just average. I think I've had a better pancake at Denny's.

You would think a place that did breakfast only would have it down pat! We went here for eggs and bacon - no sides - just meat and eggs. (and one coffee) I had to send the eggs back since they were runny for scrambled. $26.00 later we were finished eating. Doesn't that seem absurd for two eggs and an... More

I had their "2 by 4" Two eggs and four pancakes and a cup of coffee. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the pancakes delicious. Good portion, I could not finish them. Their coffee is fugging awful. Think brown-ish water. No flavor at all. I'd go back for breakfast but will never waste $2.50 on a cup of their excuse... More

We went here after reading some reviews and the craving of pancakes. It hit the spot. The pancakes were so yummy and the service was amazing. There was no wait even though it looked busy. Would def go back and would def recommend!

We were expecting so much from thus restaurant. I mean who wouldn't when a place boasts being the "The Original Pancake House?" Food was very ordinary, and the presentation was atrocious. Maybe we should have ordered one of the more fancy dishes, like the apple pancake? Way too expensive for the quality. I got a mug, and that's the only... More
