Pancakes have an interesting flavor and they are our families favorite! Portions are large, price is reasonable. Go early on weekends or plan on waiting for a table. Wish they took credit cards.

clean just old looking. Bacon is always outstanding and the potato pancakes are as good or better than my great grandma used to make! Coffee always plentiful and hot. Been in a few ophouses and this one could be redone. Always take some home in leftover containers as the servings are big. Go early or you'll wait

We have eaten at teh Original Pancake House and have never been disappointed. The food and the service are excellent and it is for us the best place in Madison/Monona to have breakfast. If you are really hungry try the baked Apple Pancake - it is impressive. One caution is that they do not take credit or debit cards which is actually nice because I think it keeps the prices down.

We ordered the famous Apple Pancake and a Western omelet to share. They were both massive and delicious and we still had to take some home. ( Around $22 with tax) Our waitress was pleasant, and kept the coffee coming without being asked...no complaints. The only real negative we saw was the extremely poor atmosphere. The place is screaming for a makeover and be prepared to pay with cash or check. Thank goodness we had the checkbook along or we would have left right after entering.

Great breakfast. Can be crowded on Sunday, but I have never had a bad meal and the waitresses are efficient! Make sure you look at the menu carefully, some items can take up to 20min to cook and that can make waiting tough if you weren't expecting it.
