The food was excellent, no doubt about it. Great pancakes, hash to die for. My only complaint is that the coffee comes in teeny little cups, not mugs, and the waitresses are extremely busy so you wait quite a while for a refill. The staff is very friendly, but the seating and parking are limited so you will definitely wait a while to eat.

Most delicious and wide variety of pancakes, waffles, crepes from around the world!!! DELICIOUS!! All of if!!

Very very busy.... Can't escape the wait so plan for it. If you will wait for the junk at Disneyland.... there is no comparison!!

There is a playground walking distance that some of your party can play at... Leave someone to claim your name tho!! Ppl get serious about their pancakes. Haha

Great servers even under all the stress of an hour wait!! Lots of small tables everywhere. Be prepared to separate big parties if needed.

Def a place not to miss... And plan on overeating and needing a nap!! Hahahah.

Only open till like 2p I think!!

Their strawberry topped waffles are positively sinful! The staff are delightful & truly want to make sure that you're completely satisfied. Quaint locale with great ambiance. Great place for breakfast!! Will be back again.

The caps were necessary because the bacon pancakes should be censored. A friend drove me quite a ways to get to this restaurant. The pancakes were sooo good, but I must say whatever they do to the maple syrup is amazing and might actually be the secret. I'm a pancake connoisseur and must say that I've never had pancakes this good. Don't go when you're starving because there was quite a bit of a wait but once inside you forget that you waited 20-30 minutes to get a table. The staff was friendly and efficient also.

Eclectic, Crowded, and looks like a mansion for pancakes, there is quite simply nothing better than the 49er Flapjacks.. I do mine with peanut butter and syrup, wife does them with powdered sugar and lemon.. Thin, delicate almost like a crepe, I have been eating these at all the OPH for the last 15 years.. Absolutely one of the most amazong dishes anywhere.
