The Original Pancake House Restaurant Review

: Sunday breakfasts can be crowded, but after all, 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’s got to be about the sixteen different pancake choices, the seven different waffle varieties, and the seven different crêpes management offers. 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 the owners’ own recipe. You’ll also find savory crêpes filled with spinach or chicken, but at a place like this, pancakes rule.
