    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!

    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.

    Avoid corned beef hash, fatty. If you want service and your entire order go else where. They rush to turn over tables too much, its average at best.

    اختيار موفق لوجبة افطار أمريكي .. متعدد الأصناف .. بانكيك و فرينش توست و وافلز و أومليت و بيض البيندكت و غيره الكثير اللذيذ ولكن يجب اخذ الحيطة بعدد الكميات لان الوجبات كمياتها كبيرة
