Reviewed April 29, 2013

Try going on a Saturday morning when they open, and see all the motorcycle riders there. Bikers KNOW good food! Their selection is very good, the ambiance is friendly and comfortable, never pretentious.I never fail to leave stuffed.

“Yum!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This place is such a treat! Our trip isn't complete in OC without stopping at the Original Pancake House. The service is friendly and attentive. Parking is not the greatest and the restaurant is tiny but the hassle is worth it. The Apple Pancake is a must have!

“Good food. Limited seating”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

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.

“Pancakes and Waffles Galore!! A classic not to be missed.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

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.
