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!

Truly a breakfast spot and perfect for early business meetings. This restaurant has giant omelettes that are super yummy. The bacon is truly meat candy here and is thick and super good! I would recommend this place to anyone who loves breakfast!!! And service is very good as well!

This used to be a good place the food once ordered came in 40 minutes which is the longest I have ever waited and it was cold. Maybe slightly warm but the pancakes were crusty like they had cooled off. The butter was hard like frozen as was the strawberries. The waitstaff was to busy talking about a phat party... More

Very nice and clean place. House that has been converted but very nice. Portions are huge. I had potato pancakes and thought they were yummy. The side of potatoes I got was just okay. Jan had a sausage and cheese omelet and that was very good also. Their large glass of juice was very small. Excellent service. We would return.

Passing through town, we stopped and ate after reading other Trip Advisor reivews. This charming restaurant is painted bright yellow, and has a happy but busy atmosphere. My husband had freshly squeezed OJ which was good, and pigs in a blanket, which he enjoyed. I had the plate of six pancakes, and my server Shawn suggested since there were six,... More
