Great gluten-free menu!

My family stops here every time we stay in Sioux Falls! My daughter and I love the gluten-free options on the menu!

Always get a great breakfast here. The pancakes are the best in town. We got the Dutch Baby pancake to share. It was very good, although not quite as good as we had heard. The eggs were done perfectly. the service was top notch!!

Wow! a line to wait for breakfast but defiantly worth the wait! Don't think I have ever had a breakfast this good. The home made pancake syrups were amazing!

We called ahead as recommended and they took our name and put it on the waiting list (1/2 hour at least). When we arrived we were told it's still a 15 minute wait. As it turned out it was only 7-8 minutes before we were seated. Our party did get a lot of dirty looks for getting in so fast,... More

I found out later they have call a head seating. The wait staff were hustling around but all were smiling. Our server, Needles is what her name tag said,... More

This place has huge and fluffy omelets that are loaded with ingredients. The flavor of the pancakes is second to none. The cheesy hashbrowns are so huge they could be a meal by themselves. The blueberry pancakes are loaded with blueberrys.

My girlfriend and I have been to OPH several times over the last 2 years. We learned quickly to call ahead for reservations as there are usually people waiting outside to get in. The menu has all of your standard breakfast fare, as well as many unique items. I haven't had anything I have not enjoyed yet. The bacon looks... More
