Portion size is enough for 2-3people to share! My sis and I tried this place for he first time on the morning of our shopping day. Service was good and everything tastes great! Atmosphere was cute. I will go again.

Very crowded, noisy and overpriced. Can't imagine why it's so busy. The food is mostly what you would find in any breakfast place, only you get it slower.

My wife and I enjoyed our corned beef hash (made on premise) and eggs today. Service was superior as always, and extremely friendly. The server noticed I was a vet, and paid for our coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice! It was such a kind gesture he will be pleasantly surprised by his tip. I highly recommend this establishment and... More

The Original Pancake House offers a wide range of breakfast choices specializing in pancakes served with real butter and real maple syrup. Only complaint is that I have always had to wait for a table - this place is very popular with the locals. Servers are knowledgeable and willing to accommodate your modifying the menu to suit your preferences. I... More

We have been going here for years! It is a Brookfield staple for breakfast or brunch. Anticipate a line on Saturday and Sunday mornings...but worth the wait!

For several years, we went here for a monthly family breakfast--it was not my choice. I try to eat healthy and inexpensively. This place appealed to the rest of my party in that they ordered huge scramblers or pancake breakfasts (which even if money or calories was not a factor, did not look good to me.) The eggs always seemed... More

So let's start with the wait. There was one. It was longer than stated. We had our three boys with us so it made it feel even longer. Once seated it took a LONG time for the waitress to visit our table. A really long time. But looking around others seemed to be in "wait" mode too. When she finally... More

I enjoy coming here, but it can be a long wait so be prepared. Food has always been good with good service as well. Menu has many options.

I went there to grab breakfast as it was near by and mom and pop dinner. I prefer mom and pop dinners and this one did not disappoint. I got a Mediterranean Omelette, never seen it made like the way they do it but it was big portion size and delicious. I liked the handmade orange juice and pancakes were... More

Pancake house has great breakfast. Their prices are a bit high, but there portions are very large and most of their menu items come with side(s) (i.e. I ordered an omelet and it came with pancakes). I always leave with leftovers. Their service is good, even when they are extremely busy (always packed on weekends).

Thank taykaz
