A bunch of us get together for breakfast once a month. The food is good and they manage to have all 12 meals ready (and still piping hot!) at the same time. Even when you order the apple pancake that takes longer.

The bacon is marvelous, granted, but it doesn't quite make up for the price of the meal, the portion size of the pancakes, and the slow tempo of service. The coffee was rich and full-bodied -- just wished they had come by to warm it up a little more often. The pancakes were small and cool, not hot. No hashbrowns included with the combo breakfast and a la carte price to add them was a bit high for potatoes. Not a bad place -- just not anything to go out of your way for unless you have a generous budget for breakfast and want to opt for some of their specialties. The bacon was excellent.

Overall the breakfast was better than most breakfast places. But the bacon was delicious. My son tells me the sausage links were the best he ever had. Service was quick and coffee refilled frequently. I would recommend for a nice breakfast experience.

Great breakfast and great service! Sundays are crowded and you'll have to wait to be seated, but food and service more than make up for it. Coffee is good and they keep your cup filled. Some typical breakfast choices but the variety of pancakes, waffles and crepes are the "stars". Food is presented well and there is plenty of it.

This Original Pancake House is one of our favorites. They have re-decorated, and it's great. Fun colors to go along really great cakes. Start off with fresh squeezed juices, wonderful coffee that they keep full. A whole menu full of different eggs, and several kinds of cakes. My wife loves the 'buckwheats'. I had the strawberry pancakes with warm thick strawberry syrup, but other fruit cakes are available. The bacon is thick and hickory flavor. Corner beef hash tastes like home made. Several omelettes, including one with mushrooms are on the menu.
The wait staff seems to be at your elbow to serve your every wish, and manager stops are frequent. A larger private room is available for family or business meetings.. For sure you will want to come back again soon.
