The Original Pancake House Restaurant Review

: Expect a wait on the weekend as people travel from up and down the Peninsula to this ultimate breakfast destination. Allow twenty minutes for the famously satisfying, oven-baked "Dutch baby" apple pancakes that can easily feed two or more. If waiting for food after waiting for a table doesn't appeal, opt for the sticky goodness of the regionally named 49'er flapjacks, over-size thin pancakes that droop over their huge plate and soak up butter, or an omelet the size of a small loaf of bread. Fresh-squeezed orange juice and thick sliced bacon can fill out an already delightfully over-the-top meal. The Formica-faux-rough-hewn d├ęcor and bottomless coffee of cup, served with heavy cream, will take you back to a simpler time.
