I have been going to this restaurant for 40 years or more. They have the best omelettes. They are so fluffy and tasty. Their apple pancake is like no other, but don't try to eat it alone. It is so sweet and rich that it must be shared. It's fun to get an apple pancake for the table to share and then order something else of your own. But beware, their portions are large and filling. Also, the German pancake or it's smaller version the Dutch Baby are fantastic. The 49ers are another wonderful treat. This restaurant never fails to deliver. The lines are long, especially on weekends. Go there, be patient and enjoy!

We always return to the mecca of apple pancakes. we have an "Original pancake house" at home, but it is never the same as the chiagoland ones.

As I remembered this place from many years ago it was really good. Sad to say that it no longer is.
French toast that was recommended was barely average. Eggs that were ordered were tasteless.
The thing that gets me is the place was PACKED and it was a weekday. If you want good breakfast food go to The Original Pantry in downtown Los Angeles.
