The Original Pancake House Restaurant Review

: The first The Original Pancake House opened in Oregon in 1953. Locations abound, including three in Detroit, and have won a worldwide, breakfast-loving following. So what's all the fuss about a breakfast joint that serves only eggs, crêpes, waffles and pancakes? You'll find freshly squeezed orange juice, whipping cream in the batters, unbleached wheat flour, 93-score butter and enough pancake selections that will make your head spin. We recommend the Big German, a baked pancake served with fresh lemon and powdered sugar, or the Garden Dutch Baby, the same puffy pancake filled with fresh vegetables and topped with Gouda. Even the old-fashioned oatmeal gets props.
