Love the food here and the menu has a nice variety of choices. The quantities are so generous. You might want to avoid the busiest times over the brunch hour or you'll have a long wait. But another indication of how good it is! If you have to wait, it's worth it!

Excellent omelets, excellent pancakes and waffles. Great coffee, great service. Be prepared to wait on busy days. It's worth the wait.

Food is average/good but the downside is the noise. You can barely hear yourself think in this place. I have tried it three times now and it is the same every time. Doubt I will go back again as I prefer a relaxed place to eat and this place is just too noisy and too rushed for my tastes. If... More

This was a decent breakfast, not the best I've ever had but solid. I had the apple pancake, which is a highlighted item on the menu. It was good, but more of a bread pudding consistency than a pancake. The other people I was with also enjoyed their meals, eggs benedict, hashbrowns, bacon etc. We waited 35 minutes for a... More

A delightful location for breakfast or lunch (only) in the active shopping/hotel area of Brookfield. Excellent pancakes and eggs were served by a very pleasant and efficient staff. Despite our showing up near closing time, they were eager to please and offer insights about the area.

I went with a co-worker and two of my sisters after trying on bridesmaids dresses and the service is pretty good even though our waiter was new he was very eager to assist us and find out answers to questions he didn't know. Now the coffee was a little too strong for my liking and I love eggs benedict but... More

Original Pancake House is far and away the best pancake place ever. So many varieties of pancakes and choices. I love the 49er Flapjacks made with sour dough. My son in-law thinks the French Toast is the bomb and my daughter loves their gluten free anything. Plus the bacon, and everyone loves bacon, is thick cut delicious. This is the... More

Had breakfast there earlier this week. It was a business meeting. The place was busy but not overly so, it was quite good from a food, value and service perspective. I had sausage and eggs with a side of pecan pancakes. All came out wonderfully prepared and hot. My dining partners had a huge omelette and ham and eggs respectively.... More

Love that they have gluten free options. Portion sizes are huge and sharing is probably your best bet. If you go on Sunday, be prepared for a wait. Ultimately, its worth it.

I asked for a suggestion, as the menu was large. The waitress, who wasn't terribly interested anyway, suggested a cherry crepe. It was strong flavored and overly sweet. Not great. But, everyone else had good food, and the bacon was pretty darn good. Loaded hash browns were great too. So if give it another try...just not that dish!
