This restaurant used to be a favorite go-to for breakfast - not anymore. So many things were not good. The interior has taken on a very tired, dreary look. The wait staff was NOT attentive - we sat for a while watching other more recent arrivals served and have orders taken while we sat and sat until we were able... More

Family owned and operated, this place is a well oiled wheel. The breakfasts are consistently top notch and delicious. The omelettes are fluffy and substantial, the pancakes also fluffy, light, and delicious. They make anything you want. My son says they have the best bacon around (its the only place he'll eat it). We love this place and always go... More

I come here for breakfast every few months to meet with family members who like it. After several Sunday morning visits in the past year, I can only rate it as Average. Popularity is surprising given typically long waits for both tables and service. (We waited ~30 min. for a party of 4.) I will admit that pancakes are their... More

Best pancakes we ever had. This enormous pancake house serves excellent pancakes, waffles, omelettes & eggs in an historic building built in 1660. They also serve sandwiches, pasta, hot meals & salad platters for lunch closing at 3pm. The

Service ok...other than that..I don't get people liking this place. We had pancakes, ok, but pretty flavorless. The syrup was definitely not a maple syrup that should be used for pancakes. It tasted like diluted blackstrap molasses. Truly awful. The coffee was not very good..oily..just poor diner coffee. The atmosphere..tired New England. I don't get not giving this place a... More

It's been awhile since I had time to have breakfast out . Today I finally was able to go back to an old favorite and it did not disappoint. We were told wait time was 25 min. Got in much sooner! This place is very popular! Don't worry. They know how to keep things moving! Pumpkin pancakes were amazing! The... More

Stopped here for a great breakfast. Good waitress , good food. I got Hash and scrambled eggs with a grilled English muffin. The hash was very good but a little hot with spice that it burned my mouth. I had the waitress ask what was in it that made it hot. She said the cook said it was white pepper.... More

The Village Pancake House is a very good breakfast place which looks as if it should have been a B & B when you first enter. Inside you'll find a cute and pretty place with a make yourself at home atmosphere. You'll find a large variety of choices and morning specials to wet your appetite. And a very friendly wait...
