20 min. for a pancake?... it's absolutely worth it.

You are greeted by a pig in chef gear. The rest of the decor is similar, bunnies in carriages, tin trains, roosters. A cozy entry amongst bustling servers. We were promptly seated with graham crackers and crayons for my son. The kids menu was smallish. French toast, pancakes, or eggs. Really though what child is not going to choose chocolate chip pancakes. So my husband and I order a german pancake and an omelette. We are informed of a 20 min. wait for those items… no problem we can wait for perfection. Overall the meal was fabulous, the only down side was the mediocre coffee. Original Pancake house brand coffee is just coffee. While they may not make superb coffee they know eggs. Also, this location is open til 9pm.

Dishes I tried:

If you are a mad scientist or food re-arranger this is the dish for you. An over the plate edge sized oven pancake is accompanied by lemon wedges, whipped butter, powdered sugar, strawberries (or bananas), and strawberry syrup. Traditionally I melt the butter, squeeze the lemon, dissolve the sugar, add fruit, then cover in syrup. The end result is a mouthful of warm custardy tart fruit delight. YUM!

Sante Fe omelette

A massive 8-10 egg omelette with onion, tomato, cilantro, and gooey aged cheddar cheese. Served with a side of medium salsa and two pancakes. Whenever I want sweet and salty I go for this combo.

Apple Pancake

Apple pie and custard lovers unite! Again with the 8-10 eggs oven puffed pancake baked with apple slices, cinnamon, butter, and brown sugar. This dish takes dessert for breakfast to a new indulgent level.

Yuck! What's with the love?

If you like soggy pancakes and way overcooked omelettes then this is the place for you, no syrup on table omlette was brought 10 minutes after others orders were brought out and it was almost unedible, brown on top and bottom, informed that’s how they make them, yuck!

Best breakfast ever!

This place is a few blocks away from me, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing... I want to go there everyday! They have the yummiest chocolate chip pancakes, strawberry & ice cream waffles, and their Big German Pancake is…

Made-to-order breakfasts---including over a dozen unique flapjacks---stack the odds in this restaurant's favor.

In Short
Founded in Oregon circa 1953, this simply-furnished spot owes its success to its creative menu and fresh ingredients. Batters are made on the premises; a special "sourdough starter" keeps treats from tasting overly…
