Would have loved to try it but allergy family beware - the restaurant uses peanut oil so we sadly had to leave without eating. The coffee we had before realizing our mistake was wonderful though!

Our party of six stopped right at 6:00 on our way to Disney. We were the second table seated but the place was totally full in a short time. And we know why. It was very difficult to choose from the inviting menu but we finally selected. Being early was a disadvantage because we could not see how large the... More

We waited outside for 40 minutes but we had heard all the rumours about how good this place was, and why would so many people be waiting. My eyes where blown once we got in, the size of the serves WOW. The Taste was amazing fresh strawberries, the best bacon, Do not miss this place well worth the wait.

We were hungry for an old-fashioned breakfast, & wanted to eat in a locally owned place, not a chain. Asked a couple of residents in the area what they'd recommend: this was the place. To say the restaurant is dated & small would be an understatement. It looks like not much has changed, decor wise, since it was opened in... More

We used TripAdvisor for a quick search and decided on the OPH before walking around Disneyland. The old building was charming and the service was impeccable. The food was average, nothing to write home about. The fresh strawberry crepe, side of hash brown, blueberry pancakes, Belgian waffle, and sausage omelette were enough to fuel us up but we had high... More

This place is the best. I always come back to this place and get the best customer service and the food is the absolute best and it is fast. Took less than 2 minutes to get my meal. Come early around 8:30 or you will wait sometimes up to an hour for a table, even during the week! This is... More

We have been going here many times over the years. We lived in Anaheim 25+years and this was one of our for it'd spots for breakfast. Husband always has the cherry crepes and I have 49ers or the kosher salami omelet all very good. Now that we live in Bakersfield we only get here once a year. I don't usually... More
