Used to be my favorite pancake house in the DC area. If they manage to deliver your pancakes when they are ready, they are really good. Portions are huge so you can definitely share. Pecan waffles were delicious. After all these years they still don't have decent coffee and no espresso drinks. There is only one brand of tea and... More

The pancake portions are huge. I love the omelettes personally but they are enough for two people. They get busy and parking sucks. So now you know when visiting the restaurant. I love this place for breakfast. The western omelette is my go to favorite.

I was there sitting outside with my two young daughters this Sunday. We ordered pancake and crepes. We had to wait for over an hour for our order and they even messed up our order! Never go back there again.

We stopped in for a late breakfast on a weekday. The service was very fast and friendly. The menu is very, very large, contains no trans-fats and gives the calories for each item. One of us regularly orders a classic American breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, and hash browns (see the attached photo of The Original Pancake House’s... More

Every one had pancakes and eggs and bacon. I do not usually order pancakes, but they were a nice size (not too big) and were served warm. I asked for my bacon to be crisp and it was very crisp and delicious. Everyone's bacon was served crisp and everyone loved the slices. The waiter was good and kept checking on... More

I visit this place on Sunday. It was awesome, surprising to see fast service and great customer service. My only downer was the bacon was a little toasty. Otherwise superb. Don't forget the freshly squeeze OJ.

Thank Mary R
