Better than most pancakes

We had planned to go to IHOP next to our hotel but it is closed due to a gas leak so we chose to travel a short way to Pancake Chef. The place was packed today but we soon found a space after a short wait. The crepes were very good as were the pancakes. The bacon was superb. The... read more

Stopped in from early morning flight into Seattle. Well worth the stop. Be prepared to wait for the German pancakes!

This non assuming place had delightful waitstaff and delicious food! Was here with a friend but great for family too! Great portion and the thick cut bacon hit the spot! You know it's a grey place when you are dining with the locals!

If you love crab, I recommend the crab omelett. It is filled with crabmeat and cheese and so delicious. It's close to the rental car return at Sea Tac so you can have a quick breakfast and still catch your plane with time to spare. The staff are friendly, and the service is fast. It looked like a place that... More

Wait was short. Pancakes were delicious. Service was warm, efficient and professional. Syrup was . . . REAL syrup . . . something I've become obsessive about . . . Not too easy to park, but well worth the struggle. We've been traveling throughout the western states for the last 6 weeks and this was definitely our best breakfast of... More

We found this place while searching for an all-day breakfast place and were so glad we did. Our waitress was a bit overworked but all in all the food was worth the wait and price. Parking was kinda weird...who places speed bumps right in a parking space?

Before writing my review, I read several of the others that posted issues. Maybe this restaurant improved as we have nothing but praise. It was well run, as diners left their tables, it was cleaned and reset for the next diners. We had breakfast here two days in a row as it was excellent. On June 18 & 19th we... More

This is simple, hearty, well-made fare served in a friendly atmosphere that values the OVER 55 crowd as well as anyone else. It's close to 154th Street in Burien, a mile N of the airport off International Boulevard. Does not take AMEX, but prices are good, food plentiful and hot. Terrific soup: a favorite of mine is Navy Bean/Bacon. Done... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant based on good reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The outside is a little run down, but as we walked inside I felt like we went back in time. The service was friendly and fast. We could see the chefs cooking our breakfast. We both ordered omlets that were delicious. They... More
