We went with the family for brunch and the food was great. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 Star is due to the fact they cook with peanut oil, which is not posted anywhere on the site or the entrance of the premises....More

Stopped in here on a week morning and sat outside on the patio which was lovely. They have a very big menu, so just about anything you can think of they have for breakfast. I would say the eggs and pancakes were average, so I...More

The OPH continues to be the most reliable, high-quality place for breakfast in the Bethesda-Rockville area. Omelets are very generous, the bacon and ham are outstanding, and the orange juice is fresh-squeezed. Very reasonable prices. The wait on the weekends is very long unless you...More

Light, bright restaurant that we really enjoyed for Fathers' Day brunch. Sat outside on the spacious patio. My eggs were perfectly scrambled. Rye toast was thick cut, and they were accommodating to substitute turkey sausage links for pork sausage. Portions were so generous I couldn't...More
