I really enjoy going to the Original Pancake House! Their Brookfield location is my favorite. No wait for seating during the week. I wouldn't think of venturing there on the weekends - too crowded & long waits. It was the first time I tried the Dutch Baby here. A German/soufflé pancake. Big, light, fluffy, melts in your mouth good. I... More

I'm a real home-made corned beef hash lover. I've been here 7-8 times and ordered the same thing each time. Generous portions, tasty hash and thick toast. The coffee is never hot enough but have them pour half a cup and ask them to refresh it often. Pancakes are their name-sake but I'm not a fan of anyone's pancakes so... More

The Pancake House has been around a few years. There are two locations, one in Brookfield on Bluemound Road and the other in Milwaukee on Oakland Avenue. Pancakes, crepes, waffles, eggs, bacon (yummy), potatoes are simply the best. Hot, fresh every time I have been there. My favorite however is the German Pancake served with Powdered Sugar, lemon & butter.... More

We enjoy frequenting the Pancake House when we are in town. Always great food. Don't miss the lingonberries! Our server this time was super attentive and was constantly refilling our coffee. Good way to start your day - but get there early to avoid waiting!

Get there before 8 on weekends or you will be standing in an hour long line. The lines are longest around 10....so get there early. Set in a single story white washed house style setting off of Blue Mound Rd., not far from a number of other restaurants, this place is easy to overlook. Parking is a t a premium... More

We eat here at least 2 times a month. It can be VERY BUSY WITH LONG LINES, BUT, it is WORTH THE WAIT . Their pancakes are scrumptious , tender and flavorful, the baked apple pancake is so delicious, filled with apples and baked with brown sugar so that it is very carmelish. Potato pancakes are crisp. The Eggs Benedict... More

Experience a real breakfast treat! Everything that I have tried has been very tasty! My favorites are their potato pancakes ordered crispy with maple syrup and a side order of their bacon. Arrive early to beat the crowds. They take reservations for parties of six or more Monday-Friday. Everyday of the week, parties of any size can call ahead 30... More

Stopped here for breakfast with family. They did a great job of serving our large group. Food was very good. I had the bacon pancakes, my husband had the pecan waffle. Everything looked delicious and there was plenty of it!
