Please never open The Original Pancake restaurant in the Hartford, Connecticut area or I will blow up like a blimp!! We always visit TOPH when we are in San Diego. It has become one of the high points of our trip over the past several years. Yes, I know there is a long wait especially on weekends, but it is so worthwhile. I do not eat eggs but adore great tasting pancakes and there is absolutely no restaurant within a half hour drive that has great pancakes. I love thin pancakes and always order the 49ers with a side of bacon. They both must be well done for my liking. I never fail to enjoy eating here and on this visit I had breakfast here three times this week. Their bacon is extremely meaty and when ordered "burned" comes out tasting like beef jerky. The coffee is superb. My wife usually orders the omelet but can never finish so this trip she had the crepes with fresh strawberries and she thought she died and went to heaven. When I have breakfast here I can't eat another morsel until much later at night. Yesterday we had breakfast at 10:30 AM and had dinner at 7:30 PM with only a piece of fruit in between and I wasn't even hungry at that time.
I am so glad that there is no OPH in the Hartford area or else I could easily become overweight to the point of being obese. I look forward to my next trip to San Diego so that I might return to the best breakfast ever!!
