You get the feeling that breakfast has been served here for eons. Be prepared for a line. There is a very nice gift shop next door to browse while you wait. The blueberry buckwheat pancakes were a touch dry.

I was in Hot Springs for several days on business, and I ate here every morning. Their banana pancakes are amazing, and so is their coffee. Their sausage is great too. Just go eat at The Pancake Shop! You won't be disappointed.
