Love this place! The service is great and has a warm atmosphere. If you're into pancakes, this is the place to go. My all-time love AND weakness is the Dutch Baby. Their crepes are really good as well. I can't speak to their eggs cause I'm not an egg person, but given how awesome the rest of their food is,... More

Visited around 9am on a Thursday morning. Not too crowded and the food came out fast. The bacon slices are huge! 2 filled me up. The buttermilk pancakes were great. My husband had blueberry pancakes which were also delicious. Service was friendly & prompt.

Good service, unfortunately the regular pancakes flavorless with a not so great texture as one would expect. The Swedish pancakes looked and tasted like a flavorless crepe in which crepes were on the menu with different fillings. I brought my second swedish pancake/crepe home to use real butter and home syrup which helped. Their syrup was warm but mediocre in... More

Great place for Sunday breakfast and that's what all the other 5,000 people think as well!!! Good food but makes you wonder if waiting 2 hours for breakfast is worth it.

We did call ahead for 17 people and only had to wait about 39 minutes. At first they said they might have to put us at two tables, but were able to put us all at one.. Only had one waitress for us all, but she was efficient and all of our food was out quickly and at the same... More

This is a great place to get a quality breakfast for a reasonable price. My advice is to go early on the weekends as there will probably be a wait if you don't.

We were a huge group of friends, we all loved it but mainly for the splendid omlette, ironically the pancakes were not so good but the omlette specially the feta one was fantastic I totally recommend it

We didn't feel like cooking breakfast so we headed to TOPH. The wait at 1pm was decent at 10 minutes and a balloon artist was employed to entertain the kiddos. Our waitress, Dina, was charming and on the ball. Halotus had the "Benham"... A twist on eggs Benedict with shaved ham and tomato slices. He said it was good...The poached... More

The Original Pancake House serves not only breakfasts, but also your standard breakfast fare. Overall good, basic food and service. They do serve some unique pancakes such as chocolate chip and Swedish pancakes.
