Heading to pa from long Island. Searched breakfast and found this gem a few minutes off of Rt 80. 6 cooks in kitchen, all busy. Friendly young staff, clean restrooms, play area for kids. Food was outstanding. Will file this restaurant in my "best places" to have breakfast. Thanks to those who posted previous reviews.

Giving the family a choice of where we should go to breakfast ends up being a no brainer. The Original Pancake House wins hands down! Best pancakes, best waffles and my personal favorite is the fresh strawberry crepes! The strawberry crepes are so good I can't convince myself to try one of those humungous omelets that go by my table.... More

All the food we ordered was outstanding. Peach pancake, very large, two people to eat, chocolate chip pancakes, pigs in a blanket, fresh strawberry pancake, bacon was thick and not overcooked. Would visit often.

Delicious breakfast with very reasonable prices. We went on a Tuesday morning around 11 am, and it was not crowded at all. The service was impeccable. We got the peach pancake to start (which is really more like a pie than a pancake), and it was delicious. The blueberry pancakes were wonderful too. If you ask, they'll add fresh blueberries...

Went for a Sunday breakfast. Our waitress was OUTSTANDING, one of the top persons to EVER wait on me. Her timing and professionalism was second to none. Lets take a minute to talk about the food. It was very good, but "some" of their prices were a bit high. I will be back for the food but will watch what... More

My daughter and I came here at 9:30 AM on a Saturday morning. The restaurant was about 75-80% full and we were seated immediately. The staff seems really young (college age perhaps) and our waitress was very pleasant and professional. I got chorizo, eggs and potatoes with a side of pancakes and my daughter got cinnamon apple cheese blintzes. The... More

Nothing fancy here . Just great breakfasts with excellent service and consistent quality food. Nice large portions, endless coffee and the best pancakes anywhere. You can't go wrong here for a great breakfast. Order the pancakes!

While visiting family in NJ, I searched breakfast places in my area on TripAdvisor and the Original Pancake House caught my eye. Nothing special or fancy but the service was great, meals were delicious and the bacon thick and cooked well! Pancakes have a nutty taste, most likely from the peanut oil used...a real treat not to be missed!

Thank Pedro R
