The baked apple pancakes are incredible especially when served with Ice-cream!! It's like desert. They are huge, easily enough to feed 2-3 people! Fresh squeezed orange juice and not even in FL!

We loved the OPH. The signature Apple pancakes were DELICIOUS, the server was super friendly, food came out quickly, and the atmosphere was great, very family-oriented. $8-11 per dish.

My father and I brought my son for breakfast on a Sunday morning in January. The comforting food and staff warmed us up with pancakes, eggs, bacon, and plenty of coffee. The portions are large, even for three hungry men.

Moved 4 hours away so when we're back in south bend we've got to stop. Nice to see familiar staff. We've got our favorite choices: strawberry crepes, poached eggs, bacon, buckwheat pancakes. Great coffee.
