“Excellent sourdough pancakes, etc.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Breakfasts are wonderful. They have every variety
you can think of. But service is very slow and
coffee is never hot, just warm.

“Gluten Free Friendly!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I did not know that this restaurant had GF options when we chose it. There were little wheat icons on many of the menu items, and when we asked what it meant, we were told we could get that menu item GF. I was so excited! I and my two daughters chose the GF option for our breakfasts. They chose to order large OJ's and I ordered decaf coffee. The meals was phenomenal! The coffee was fresh and tasty, served in a classic coffee cup, not a mug.

Then the bill came...

Two OJs were OVER $8.00; my coffee was $3.00; and our waitress neglected to inform us that choosing GF was an extra $1.00 per menu item. For three people, our bill was a whopping $44.00!

When I was paying our bill, I told the checker that the extra GF charges would be coming out of the nice tip I'd planned on leaving the waitress.

I would recommend eating here, the service really was fantastic and the food delicious. Just be aware of what you're paying for.

“You can't go wrong with pancakes!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

For brunch we chose the Original Pancake House. Their menu offered a ton of yummy sounding options. I decided to go with the crepes which were very tasty. My husband had an omelet which was HUGE and came with pancakes. Everything tasted great!

“Best Pancakes in area”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We have been patron of this OPH since we moved her 7 years ago. The owners take great pride in the restaurant and the food. The place is spotless and very well maintained. Even the washroom have 'real' TP! If you like pancakes this is the place. They have some great seasonal specials - like awesome pumpkin pancake in the fall, fresh fruits when available in the summer. Their potato pancakes are the best we have had.

“Excellent Pancakes”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Great pancakes and above average breakfast food, but a bit on the pricey side compared to restaurants in the area.
