Good breakfast

Very clean, restraint. Had the gluten free pancakes and they were very good. Waitstaff was friendly and good. Definitely will eat there again.

Going to breakfast at The Original Pancake House on Franklin has become a tradition when I am getting ready to leave town early in the morning. They have a terrific variety of breakfast items, and I find them relatively reasonable (though I wouldn't say it was inexpensive). I've had both egg dishes and french toast/pancake/waffles, and everything is great. A... More

Those of us who remember the old location are still nostalgic for it, but the food is as good as ever. The French toast is wonderful, but all of the pancake options are superb. Real cream for never-ending coffee. And the service is perfect.

Can't go wrong when everything is so right at the Original Pancake House in Eugene! Mary is the best waitress in the house! Friendly, efficient & happy to split up checks for large parties of 8+. Although it is a pancake house, you'd be sorry for not trying the bacon waffle. Don't miss this place anytime you are in Eugene.

My wife and I ate breakfast at this establishment for three days. I had the bacon and eggs with toast. My wife had bacon and eggs with homefires (diced potatoes). All of this food was ample and very good. The following days I stayed with the bacon and eggs ( on the Atkins diet so no pancakes were allowed.) Noticed... More

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast and if this place were open all day I would be in three times a day. When you ask for crisp bacon you get crisp bacon. The coffee is brewed to perfection. The service is friendly. I cannot even think of a negative thing to say about it.

My hubby loves eating what I call an apple pie for breakfast, apple pancake. Well worth the wait. It's been two years since we've been here because the rest of the family didn't really like the menu. But in researching it again today we saw new pancakes, omelets and home fries that everyone would be happy with. Came later in... More

It took about 25 minutes to get seated, but I'd rather wait a few minutes to get good food than eat bad food. If a restaurant is busy it is a good sign. The Eggs Benedict were very good and the omelets were good size and delicious. Definitely recommended.

Their more than just pancakes! Friendly service huge portions & average price. If omelettes are your thing you gotta give this one a try. It's huge and uniquely prepared by baking (takes about 12 minutes) Seriously it's the size of a pie and could easily feed 2-3 people w/sides. On a side note...GO DUCKS

I enjoyed having the experience of sourdough pancakes, as it can be hard to find these in a restaurant. The atmosphere was clean to the point of sterile, and the wait staff was friendly, prompt, and professional. You may not find much soul in this restaurant, but you can get a tasty breakfast.
