We visited with large group so hard to review fairly. Meals were brought out sporadically and hard to get coffee refills. Always better when individual tables.

It is usually a good sign when the tables in a restaurant seem to continuously fill. The pancakes were great, light and not filling. Service was very good. Breakfast here was excellent.

The OPH has taken great care of our group of guys that meet there weekly. They always have a seat reserved in the back so we can talk. Service is usually pretty good and food is great.

First time at this place. Evidently the busiest Saturday morning ever! We waited for 50 minutes after making reservation on an app. Service was very good. Food was ok but not stellar. Pancakes were thin and not cooked all the way through. Coffee was good....More

Summer months only- they serve a killer breakfast with their light-as-a-feather (made from fresh squeezed) lemon ricotta pancake with fresh raspberries in a raspberry sauce. It’s to die for. I’ve had it other places but nothing compares to this. You’ll love it! Great service, great...More
