Been eating here for over 40 years. It never disappoints. Weekends can be crowded and expect a wait but the breakfasts especially are worth it. Great place for families. Very friendly servers and good food

Ate dinner here the other night, and wife and I both had omelets. Both were very good, came with hash browns and either pancakes or Swedish pancakes with lingonberry butter. Both of these were yummy too! We were pleased with the food and would come back. Cute older style restaurant, makes you feel like you are in an old lodge... More

Stopped in SFO overnight after a long trip from Vietnam. Suffering jet lag, we walked to Pancake house for a light dinner. the server was sympathetic to our condition and very professional and personable. We only had sandwiches, but they were fresh, hot and quickly served. After 2 weeks of Asian food, this tasted like manna. If we didn't have... More

Sign says has been in operation since the 1950's, it shows, the staff know what to do to turn out good, homestyle food. A lot of variety on their menu.

Loved the breakfast that my wife and I had here on our vacation. Better be ready to have a little trouble finding a parking space because this place is popular. Needless to say there might also be some waiting to get a seat or table. I think it's worth the wait. This is old time cooking and hospitality. Takes me... More

We went there for dinner, we ordered roasted turkey with smashed potatoes and veggies..good but nothing special. 12$ per person, beverages excluded. Big portions, we both needed boxes.

My restaurant rating scale is simple. To receive an excellent, a restaurant must excel in each of the following: menu, service, quality of food, atmosphere, yumminess, and lastly must have a wow factor that makes the restaurant special. Menu - varied & wonderful - pancakes and waffles seem to take center stage Service - our waitress was so friendly and... More

This place is super busy and after eating there we understand why. The menu and the decor are straight out of the 1970s and that is not a bad thing. The food is very good and you need to come hungry as the portions will not leave you hungry. We had eggs, Swedish pancakes, pecan waffles and sausages and all... More
