If you like breakfast, including eggs cooked to perfection, pancakes, thick bacon, bold coffee, and great service, I would highly recommend "The Original." Absolutely the best breakfast place we've eaten at, worldwide. Nice folks too.

We have dined at the Original Pancake house for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The crowds tend to thin out the later in the day you go. The omelets are huge and you get a side of pancakes to go with it. My favorite is the grilled chicken, spinach, and feta omelet. This is a family favorite when we want breakfast... More

The food here is great and quite reasonable in cost! If you drive by there is ALWAYS a wait, but do not let that bother you! The food and atmosphere is worth the wait-I assure you of this!

My son and I visited the OPH on Saturday around 9:30am. I was concerned about the wait when I saw the parking lot was full, but this was mainly due to the fact that it's such a small parking lot. We were told the wait would be about 15 min. We were actually seated in less than 10min. Our waitress... More

We ate here Friday morning and had to wait for a table. When there is a wait on a weekday morning, that should give you an idea of how good this place is. The omlets are large and tasty. The pancakes are light and fluffy. The place is busy, but the service is good.

This place has the best and biggest omelet I know of anywhere. The 7 egg omelet is as big as the plate. It's big enough to share or big enough to consider as dinner. When I order one I do a custom omlet with bacon, ham, and onion. My favorite way to make one. They come with a side of... More
