Even though the name is Pancake House and the breakfast menu looks great, we were there at lunch time and the 4 of us enjoyed a variety of sandwiches. Good food, good service, not fancy.

Centrally located, it's a natural place to begin your day on Mackinac Island. Good coffee, good pancakes, good service. It doesn't get any better anywhere.

The cinnamon chip pancakes are to die for. The service was great and we didn't wait long for our food. We visited 10/12/18.

Right next to Ryba’s Fudge, this little joint churns them out in the morning. Great buttermilk pancakes and bacon.

The Pancake House is a busy place at breakfast time. It is very small and busy. The waiter was friendly and tried his best to accommodate many people. I ordered the waffle. I can tell you I have had many, many waffles in my lifetime....More
