“Great Wait Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The staff here is very friendly and efficient. This is not a place to go if you are in a hurry however. I ate here twice on my recent trip to Minneapolis and wait times for breakfast were longer than average and the food was nothing special, and a little overpriced. The Very Good rating is based solely on how friendly and courteous the greeters and wait staff were here.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I get to the Original Pancake House once a month. I try to order something different every time because I have never had anything that wasn't excellent. You can eat everything from Breakfast to Lunch. The Restaurant is only open until 3pm.

Also, the service has always been very good.

“Satisfying Cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I rarely eat out for breakfast, but the Original Pancake House is at the top of my list. I enjoy the variety of pancakes or near pancakes that are offered. I could never make these at home. Our children enjoy the meals they have had as well! There is a great deal of variety in offerings both main and sides.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Thanks to other recommendations on tripadvisor tried this restaurant. Everything was delicious. The 4-egg omelette and a side of their homemade hash was plenty to split for two people. Coffee was fresh and delicious. Definitely recommend.

“So much more than pancakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I make great pancakes so wouldn't order them from a restaurant, but they have so much more and everything is fantastic. My pickiest son recommended this place for the hash browns, and their apple crepes are top shelf. Get the full order so you can enjoy them at home, they reheat really well.

The menu is extensive and everything is made from scratch. It's worth the wait for sure.
