Reviewed July 21, 2013

We stayed at the Chippewa which is next door to the Pancake House, and we were able to get some very good cinnamon rolls to go on our way to the ferry very early the morning we left.

“terrible coffee, good food”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This place has horrible coffee but the food is good and service is fast and friendly. It's a good option for breakfast as long as you don't mind burnt-tasting coffee or you opt for another beverage. They serve typical breakfast choices and the food is tasty. It'd be perfect if they'd just figure out how to make a good cup of coffee.

“Fantastic breakfast and great service and value!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Pancake House was some of the better food we had during our stay on the Island and much better value than other restaurants. Service was friendly and quick. Good coffee and cinnamon rolls.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

The food was very good. The omelet was yummy as was the oatmeal. Hash browns were cooked just right. Our only disappointment was at the very strong coffee that we were served. Other than that, we really enjoyed it!
