Great breakfast

One of our two favorite places for breakfast in Brookfield. Expect a line, so come early enough - there is no reserving a table.

This is a place where I frequently meet a group for breakfast because many in the group like the restaurant. (Can't really understand why they do.) The portion sizes are way too large so you end up spending more than you can possibly eat. I like regular hash browns (shredded), but theirs are large baked cubes, not a bit crispy,... More

This is a very cute restaurant set in an original Brookfield farmhouse amongst strip malls and urban sprawl (so you need to look for it on the north side of Bluemound Rd). They have GREAT food and something for everybody! Serving size is good and variety abounds. Be mindful this place is packed for breakfast on the weekends, so you... More

Original Pancake House is simply one of the best breakfast restaurants anywhere. The food is always of high quality. The bacon is unbelievable (we order it crispy). The only challenge is that it is quite popular, so you might wait for a table.

The Original Pancake House is a treat for a big breakfast. The selection for pancakes, waffles and omelets is huge and every one is great. I meet friends there often and have never been disappointed. In addition to the food, the staff is always friendly and helpful. Be aware that the restaurant closes in the early afternoon.

You can call ahead 30 minutes prior to arriving to make a reservation, and on weekends and around the holidays this is all but necessary to be seated within an hour. This place is hoppin'! Food is good and the pancakes are enormous. Staff is very friendly and attentive and good about bringing drink refills and condiments. The hash browns... More

The service is attentive, with coffee refills available quickly. The delicious veggie omelet was as large as my dinner plate. I took home over 75% of it to be enjoyed several more times. I also had the 3 pancakes, that came with the omelet, packed for take-out when I ordered.

My husband and I recently went to The Original Pancake House for breakfast on a rainy Monday morning. Neither of us had been there before. We were greeted pleasantly and seated quickly, and our drink order was taken immediately. We ordered orange juice and coffee. My husband ordered an omelet, which was huge! He has a hearty appetite, but he... More
