First ate here over 30 years ago while living in Anaheim. Although I've moved to South County, I sometimes pass thru and never miss an opportunity to drop in. The food is still stellar. The apple pancakes are worth the wait! Only fault is the long lines so one has to plan timely. Note; there is another Original Pancake House... More

I saw all the raves about this place on yelp and decided to give it a try. I went there on Saturday morning and i was told that the wait is 45 mins to an hour. I signed up my name and got a table after 1 hour. I ordered Dutch baby pancake, Corn Beef Hash, and Beef Scramble. The... More

Ok, we love our OPH in Sandy Utah and this one is just as good. This is the perfect launching pad for a Disneyland day. Now, mind you it is busy, sooooo go early so you can be at the park early. Have a Magical Breakfast!

Service was a little slow but friendly. Gluten free pancakes and regular pancakes were great. Great bacon. Not good eggs. Seemed like egg substitute. A little pricey for what you get.

We had a small wait but it was totally worth the wait. Food was great and plentiful we all took home food. Wait staff was fun and patient since one person was delayed because of rain.

Pancakes were good. Coffee was terrible - very weak. Good service and close to Disneyland. Varied menu.

I wondered why there were little take out containers on the ledge nearby, and I quickly realized upon receiving my breakfast. Based on reviews on here we went for breakfast early one morning before heading out to Universal Studios and it was terrific. I recommend a combo that comes with pancakes as my wife ordered just a waffle and that... More

Fast, friendly service here was amazing! There was a 40 minute wait but it was well worth it. We were greeted very warmly by the host (maybe the owner?). Our waitress was very helpful in answering our questions and giving suggestions. My husband had the Spanish omelet with buttermilk pancakes and I had the vegetable omlet with coconut pancakes. While... More

What can I say...this place was awesome. Food was so yummy, service was excellent and great price. Will definitely be hitting this place up next time we r in Anaheim! Hubby had the bacon waffle and I had the ground beef scramble with a side of pancakes, everything tastes fresh and plates were filling.

This place never ran out of people. There's always a line--because of good food and dining experience. They have a wide variety of pancakes (of course!!!) to choose from. But not only that, they also have good omelettes and overflowing coffee. I always bring friends who are visiting Orange County for the first time to this place... Shouldn't be missed... More
