One in our party was gluten sensitive and the OPH offers most pancakes and waffles in their gluten free recipe. We ordered the apple pancakes as GF and they were excellent. Slabs of bacon topped the experience. Good service

If you love breakfast food, this is the place for you. I had traditional eggs and pancakes and my spouse had strawberry crepes; both were everything you would want in a breakfast treat. Coffee was fresh and servers keep your cup filled. The only downside is it is cramped and we could overhear conversations from nearby tables. Location is excellent... More

OPH is a favorite for locals, as evidenced by their long lines on weekends. If you plan on going on the weekend, I recommend downloading the app "No Wait," where you can place your party's name in ahead of time. As someone with a gluten allergy, OPH is amazing for a delicious GF breakfast. Their GF pancakes are my favorite,... More

OPI is our favorite breakfast place. The varied entrees make the decision- making difficult. Servings are generous, but so good. In addition the regular menu, the restaurant has seasonal entrees such s the lemon ricotta pancakes during the summer. The coffee is excellent and the wait staff keep the cup filled!

I knew I'd wandered into something good when there was a 25 minute wait at 9:30 on a Friday morning. Their pancakes were first rate and I still rave about their soufflé omelette.

Busy place for breakfast. Basic egg, bacon and toast kind of place. Good coffee served hot. They have a more diverse menu, but I haven't tried it. Good for lunch too. Not expensive. Lots of business talk in my experience.
