First time eating here and worth the wait on a weekend. Plenty of food, great service and yummy. I had the omelette with corned beef and was light and tasty. Pancakes were terrific too.

More good food per person than any one individual could possibly eat in one sitting. I have never had a bad meal and have always taken enough for home to serve another meal! Highly recommend, but go hungry and ready to enjoy a great selection...More

Can't go wrong with a good old fashioned family breakfast. Service was good and prices were even better. Plenty of parking and easy to find. Can get pretty busy so go early. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Family House of Pancakes is an old school family run restaurant. The staff is friendly, the portions are large and delicious and the price is reasonable. Be prepared to wait if you visit during the breakfast rush but it is completely worth the wait!

Be hungry when you visit or be ready to eat lots of left-overs. Their omelettes are THE BEST! There's always a long line on Sunday mornings, so plan ahead. Fancy it isn't but if you want excellent food and service, this is your place!
