Not much to add. Where else had the food been excellently consistent basically forever?

Best Pancake/Breakfast restaurant in Champaign-Urbana. But be prepared to wait for the morning rush, especially on weekends. Gamedays or day after gamedays in Football season it is insane there. Seems to be only open for breakfast and lunch, but good stuff. Nice variations on all kinds of pancakes.

I am a local, and I can testify that The Original Pancake House is one of Champaign's most popular breakfast spots. Plan ahead and expect a wait on Saturday and Sunday mornings. It won't be horribly long, though, because tables are managed efficiently and the host staff are always very pleasant. There's free coffee while you wait.

Pancakes are their specialty (obviouisly), but they also have waffles, omelets, and scrambles. i partiularly am fond of the 49'er Flapjacks. The Sourdough French Toast is also a competitor for my attention.

Service is swift and pleasant, and the restaurnat is always very clean. The menu warns of a few items which take longer to prepare.

You can't go wrong here!

I didn't have the highest expectations for brunch, since this seemed like your basic over-commercialized chain restaurant. Boy, was I wrong. The 25 minute wait to get a table told me that this was going to be a good place. The pancakes and syrup were especially tasty. They have a lot of unique dishes, as well, including a gyro breakfast skillet and bacon waffles. Can't wait to go back and try something else!
