“Great coffee is a sign of great things to come!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

This place deserves a medal compared to the diners on this highway that are not far away. The hostess, waitress, and staff are most pleasant and friendly. The coffee was really good, not the typical kind that you get in a place that specializes in breakfasts, and what we ordered was truly delicious. The pancakes were fluffy and extremely tasty, and the juice offerings were great, not just the typical OJ. My husband's eggs and bacon were reportedly really great as well, and he was happy that they didn't saturate the English muffin with too much butter.
This was our first time here, and certainly not our last.
Upon leaving, there was a woman at the cashier's desk who seemed like the owner. She was pleasant and gracious. We highly recommend this place for a fantastic breakfast!!!

“Not Just Pancakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Having visited this staple landmark of Middletown NJ for more than 30 years , its like returning to my childhood each time I make a visit. You see this where as a child I first discovered chocolate chip pancakes. So simple but refined. Yup you can go home again.
But over the years times have changed and with time the Pancake House has changed along with it's cliente/ guests, Now open for breakfast lunch and early dinner, the menu features " more than just pancakes" BLTS, Open faced sandwiches, grill cooked fresh hamburgers, along with family style dinner specials of the night along with a nice cup of coffee or tea are available to all. Twp Officials find this a comfortable place as for a business breakfast or lunch without interfering with other diners experiences. Sunday mornings after church family get
togethers/ brunch are the busiest time and its the normal to have a 10 min wait for a table. Service and knowledge of Middletown and surrounding business can be good for the out of town travelers sitting down to eat. Coffee and tea are always served with.a full pot for the table, so getting your refill is just an arm reach away, Many local high school students have learned their service and business skills by being employed here. Prices were good and the value in both taste and atmosphere are far above the drive thru chain quick serve. Time to STOP slow down and find yourself your own stack of chocolate chip pancakes here at the Middletown Pancake House.

“best potato pancakes and nice breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Middletown Pancake house has always been consistent with their food. they have delicious potato pancakes. The regular pancakes are nice and fluffy, and they always give you a large pto of coffee and tea at your table. the staff and ownership have been here for over 30 years, and they are very friendly. I was here this weekend and they were packed. yet the food came out quickly and was hot. I would recommend it for breakfast.
