This diner-style breakfast joint is our new go to spot. Great prices for quality food. The Smoked Chedder Grits with Bacon are fantastic. Crepes with apples are super tasty. The Swedish pancakes with Lingdon Berries are to die for - thin and tender, with perfectly crispy edges. The colorful dining area feels 1980s-retro and a mixed morning crowd makes everyone... More

Been here many times in the past few years. Thought I better write a review because I just love this place. Food is great and the staff is very friendly. Got to try the apple pancakes.

I was hoping for a hearty breakfast before our day on the road. I knew the pancake house never disappoints and IT DIDNT!!! I have the fresh vegetable omelette with bacon and chocolate chip pancakes on the side. DELICIOUS!!!!! May go back tomorrow but we may try another spot. Old school design, very fitting of the Mexican demographic. Definitely suggest... More

We have dined at numerous Original Pancake Houses and were excited to dine at this one on a trip to Scottsdale. We have come to know and count on the consistency of the menu and service. We were seated immediately and waited 15 minutes for the waitress to take ask for coffee orders. Others diners came after and were served... More

Fast service and plenty of food. Your water if at the table as you sit down. Some old recipe potato pancakes that are crisp. Their omlets are large, delicious and they are baked. It takes awhile to decide from the menu. Crepes are a specialty.

This place is like an old diner. They have a typical breakfast menu and cooked my eggs perfectly. With all the expensive places to eat in Scottsdale, this place is moderately price and good. Get there before nine or there is a wait. All parties need to be present before they seat you.

I stayed a week at the motel 6 attached to this restaurant. I went to eat breakfast here on the first morning at 7am as they unlocked the door. I was greeted and seated quickly. I placed my order 5 minutes later as other people arrived. Several guests near me placed their order about 10 minutes after I had, and... More

The menu and food at Original Pancake House was great! We actually ate there twice during our recent trip to Scottsdale - we went back a second time because we just had to try the apple pancake they make which they say to allow 40 minutes to cook. (We didn't have time on our first visit and had already waited... More

I'm not a big pancake guy, but there's were great. I also had spicy chicken sausage (tasty) and a pecan waffle. They overcharge for orange juice but the food is reasonably priced.

In Michigan we have several of these so it was a pleasant surprise to find one here. The food tastes a bit different (cook the home fries longer) but it's still nice to get those flap jacks! There might be a wait for to be seated but worth it if you have pancakes on the brain.
