“Best cinnamon apple pancake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

REAL Cinnamon on the pancake - and while the thick bacon is good, the german sausage is an outstanding change of breakfast meat. Worth the wait, but closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

“Crowded for a Reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Don't let the long line dissuade you--it's worth it. If you are alone or traveling as a couple, sit at the "community table" for faster service. Every pancake is amazing, in my experience, so just pick what looks appealing at the moment. The portions are huge, so either share or plan to take leftovers. If you want to really go for it, order the Dutch Baby--there's nothing like it anywhere else.

“The Is Old Style Big ComfortFood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

They are famous for these big poufy pancake things, I did not have that, but saw and smelled them going to A Lot of other patrons. I would recommend this for a big family breakfast, but it is apparently always crowded, so plan for that. Good food, reasonably priced.

“A Favorite for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is the original restaurant in the "Original Pancake House" chain. Nowhere else can you find pancakes that are this good, unless it is at your grandmother's house! I like the simple buttermilk pancakes but there are much more exotic (and good) pancakes available too, such as a great "Dutch Baby." I love the atmosphere and the good and efficient service. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star is that it is noisy and can have a long wait, especially on weekends.

“Pancake stacks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Great place for breakfast or possibly brunch. Copious amounts of coffee and the pancake portions were huge. You can order sides instead. Good place to eat and you can watch the world go by.
