Great selection of Pancakes, excellent service.
The Corned Beef Hash with Potato Pancakes made my day. Would return to sample more of the many Pancakes.

Bottom line - Yummy!

There are so many children with severe peanut allergies (including my daughter), yet this restaurant chooses to cook almost every dish with peanut oil. Sure, their lawyers made sure that they paste peanut warnings all over the menu but it does not excuse them from the moral obligation to serve safe food. Even in China they don't this much peanut oil. What happened to olive oil, vegetable oil, and so on? Yes, there are a handful of dishes that are prepared without peanut oil but this is a matter of being responsible and clearly these people have never seen a child going into anaphylactic shock.

I didn't think this place was anything too special. The food and service was comparable to an IHOP like someone else mentioned. To be fair I'll say there was a huge selection of pancakes. Much more than IHOP but I just didn't think it was anything too special.

It looks like this place has been around a while as it seemed to have a lot of older "regular" locals when I went.

I ordered some pancakes and they were ok. But nothing too special where I'd go back.

My friends also got some pancakes and they had a similar meh attitude.

Entered the very non-descript exterior to find a very cozy, busy restaurant, a surprise for a Thursday morning. The selection of pancakes was impressive. Ordered the blueberry waffle and when it arrived it was flatter than I expected but delicious, and a little crispy, just the way I like it! The blueberry compote that came with it was warm and sweet, not too thick, with fat blueberries.

The coffee, which is important to me, was good as well.

Had a great mid-day meal at the Original Pancake House in Encinitas. Waitress was good. Food was a little pricey for a breakfast place. If you want soda's with your meal, you will have to get it later as they just have juices, coffee, teas, hot chocalate, milk and water. I had the apple pancake, and it was awesome!
