Description: The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field, and their extensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes they were able to offer without compromise this unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim. Our recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Welcome to our house, we’re serving up the Next Best Thing to Breakfast in Bed!

“Delicious breakfast spot”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Great price and portions. This is our breakfast spot that we like to return to whenever we have time for a sit down breakfast. My husband loves the crepes and I like the breakfast meals that have it all, bacon, eggs, hash browns (they are great) and pancakes.

It has food all day, we have also eaten lunch before and enjoyed it but usually just come for breakfast cause it's farther from where we live.

“Multiple breakfast delights”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Several stops at the Aventura OPH over the recent years. Portions are large and ingredients fresh. I enjoy ordering my omelet with the freedom to add or subtract some goodies.
Busy, noisy place at times, the restaurant welcomes families, groups, and singles.
Decent coffee, and many choices.

“NO customer service”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

The food is pretty good especially if you're a late riser who likes breakfast at 2pm. The servers are HORRIBLE so mentally prepare yourself so you don't get PO'ed by their lack of customer care.
