We've been visiting The Pancake House for 20 years. Great place to start your day. Buckwheat pancakes are very good. Eggs prepared perfectly. Good coffee. Very friendly service.

“great small breakfast eatery”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Great little breakfast cafe in downtown Hot Springs. Our group of 4 went by the place on a Sunday about noon. People were standing outside the place to wait in line. We had already eaten breakfast, but decided to try it Monday morning. This place only serves breakfast until 12:30 I do believe and I found out has been in that area for decades. We couldn't believe how busy they were on Monday. We got there around 9:00 a.m. Didn't take long to be seated though. They have a very simple menu, omelets, eggs and of course pancakes. I had eggs, bacon and english muffins, very good. I saw the omelets, they were huge and looked yummy. My husband and sister-in-law ordered blueberry pancakes. Needless to say I had to have a taste, they were wonderful. Just a good all around American breakfast. Everyone was very polite and the place was extremely clean and it is the best food bargain in town. Will return when in Hot Springs.

“QUALITY!!!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

It's the little things that count, this small vintage breakfast shop is perfection. Super clean, very friendly and efficient service, and the food was phenomenal. Hand pattied sausage, piping hot syrup and coffee, with apple butter & jelly brought out with our food. If there's a line it's worth waiting.

“good old fashion breakfast!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

You can tell by the constant line that this food must be good! And it was! They have a little shop next door that was pretty neat as well.

“A tradition”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We love going to the Pancake Shop, which we have been doing for at least 30 years or more. Love the pancakes, and the service is good. As with many Hot Springs restaurants and hotels, this is a step back in time which we thoroughly enjoy.
