The Original Pancake House Restaurant Review

: Sunday breakfasts can be crowded, but there’s no better way to relax than over a stack of hot pancakes with loads of butter and syrup. Why all the fuss? It must be over the 16 pancake selections as well as the multiple varieties of waffles and crêpes. Chocoholics rave about the chocolate chip stack with tiny chips melting slowly under sweetened whipped cream, but our favorites are the Hawaiian pancakes, filled with crushed pineapple and bathed in an intense orange syrup. Delicious breakfast sausages are made from a secret recipe. Also located at 12224 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD, 301-468-0886; and 370 W. Broad St., Falls Church, VA, 703-891-0148.
