    Looking for a satisfying breakfast experience? This is the place! Way better than any Denny's or IHOP! The service is AMAZING and so is the food! Felt cozy and homely. Definitely returning!

    Weekends are busy so get in early. I recommend the Blueberry pancakes and the corned beef hash. If you are in the mood for something sweet and tangy, try the Dutch Baby. It's fabulous!

    You can put in a half order of 2 pancakes for maximum deliciousness! For example, you can get half banana pancakes & half chocolate chip pancakes and voila! You have banana chocolate chip pancakes.

    The Original Pancake House is a chain but the Anaheim location is my absolute favorite! In the heart of Anaheim, it's a local tradition. No reservations. Be ready to wait on weekends.

    Had awesome breakfast after a graveyard volunteer shift for Disney half marathon. Anyways, try mushroom omelet then add sausage & swiss cheese. The omelet comes with 3 pancakes too :) You'll love it!

    There is a special item not on the menu called The Irish Benedict, an Eggs Benedict made with corned beef hash rather than Canadian Bacon. Try it sometime!

    This place is a very welcoming environment. I went with a friend in a wheel chair and we realized there's no ramp.. but they saw us coming and brought a mobile ramp..

    The new pumpkin pancakes are the best ones I've ever had. Don't forget to pick up some of the coffee they sell -- it's amazing!

    This was the first California branch of this nationwide chain to open in 1958. It was gutted by fire & rebuilt in 1961,

    Very small place I think that's 1 reason for the wait all the time. Knowing the cost of food its a bit high but not out of the norm thst Californians like to pay.

    Don't get discouraged by the wait, they told me 20 minutes and it only took 8. Well worth it.

    Choose an egg specialty or omelette and upgrade the pancakes for $1 more

    Order an egg special and upgrade your pancakes...better than paying 4 bucks for a side of bacon

    Tried to make a reservation. Told we didn't need one. Hour long wait. Extremely loud. Bacon Omelette was over done. Waitress almost pushed coffee onto my lap when serving food cuz of tiny tables.
