This place is a fun trip for a breakfast/brunch outing with friends or family. Certainly a neat vibe for kids. Lots of unique "old world" menu items like their big apple crisp thing and their oven baked omelettes. Blueberry pancakes are some of my favorite...More

My fiance raved about how good The Original House of Pancakes in Birmingham was. I didn't have the same sentiments. My omelet was disgusting and it was overcooked. I don't have a desire to go back. But the wait staff was really nice.

Around for many years, this pancake house is everything one wants in a pancake house. Great place for families and friends. The only problem is the wait - you may spend as much time here on Sunday as you spent in services!
