“BEST BACON AND PANCAKES EVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

My bf and I yelped this place and we were going to be in the area. We saw the line formed outside and we almost left if it wasn't for an angel that I asked in the parking lot if it was worth the wait. Her answer was, YES!!! She also told us the bacon was delicious. She was not lying and for those people who are out there and believe in not asking questions and speaking to anyone shame on them cause they can miss out on a lot. Back to the review the entire staff deserves a gold star not only do they have a crowd their demeanor never faltered. If this place was next door to me I would surely be 100 pounds heavier and happy for each one. I wanted to thank The Original Pancake House for my delicious breakfast and hope to see you for many more years to come!!!

“It's been there forever, and the food and prices are just as fantastic as always!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Try going on a Saturday morning when they open, and see all the motorcycle riders there. Bikers KNOW good food! Their selection is very good, the ambiance is friendly and comfortable, never pretentious.I never fail to leave stuffed.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This place is such a treat! Our trip isn't complete in OC without stopping at the Original Pancake House. The service is friendly and attentive. Parking is not the greatest and the restaurant is tiny but the hassle is worth it. The Apple Pancake is a must have!

“Good food. Limited seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The food was excellent, no doubt about it. Great pancakes, hash to die for. My only complaint is that the coffee comes in teeny little cups, not mugs, and the waitresses are extremely busy so you wait quite a while for a refill. The staff is very friendly, but the seating and parking are limited so you will definitely wait a while to eat.

“Pancakes and Waffles Galore!! A classic not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Most delicious and wide variety of pancakes, waffles, crepes from around the world!!! DELICIOUS!! All of if!!

Very very busy.... Can't escape the wait so plan for it. If you will wait for the junk at Disneyland.... there is no comparison!!

There is a playground walking distance that some of your party can play at... Leave someone to claim your name tho!! Ppl get serious about their pancakes. Haha

Great servers even under all the stress of an hour wait!! Lots of small tables everywhere. Be prepared to separate big parties if needed.

Def a place not to miss... And plan on overeating and needing a nap!! Hahahah.

Only open till like 2p I think!!
