My spouse and I recently visited the Original Pancake House for the first time. Because it was a Sunday morning, we anticipated a wait. We were told 20-30 minutes but it was actually 45 minutes before we were seated. Our server, Bekki, was prompt, efficient...More

I hadn't been here for years. My father was wanting a Dutch Baby, so this was his choice. The restaurant was busy, but not such that we had to wait on this Friday as we once did. There are other options in the area that...More

Great coffee, amazing variety on the menu and super quick service. Poached eggs were cooked perfectly (they are seldom delivered as ordered - ‘medium well’) and the hollandaise sauce had me scraping the plate

Immediately seated at noisey table for two. We were served by an efficient fat moving young guy named Dana. She had pumpkin pancakes with a mound of whipped cream and I had the blueberry pancakes with a thin syrup with very small blueberries. Both were...More

Sunday morning at the pancake house. Everybody does that, right? Well, maybe in spirit, but probably not like The Original Pancake House, founded in 1953. The blurb on the back of the menu states their menu has been unchanged since the day of its founding....More

Every time I go to Denver (several times a year), I have to have go here for the sourdough pancakes. I've tried to replicate them, but just can't. Darn, now I'm craving them again!

Food is very generous in portion size and delicious! No one has a breakfast this good in Metro Denver. There are some Trendy breakfast spots, but their food is not as good as Original Pancake House food. On the negative side, very noisy and crowded,...More

This is the original and the best. Bring your appetite and forget your calorie counter (although their oatmeal is very good). It's only for breakfast, and they do it very well. Staff is accommodating and friendly. Be aware that weekend will be a pretty long...More

This place is incredible. It has something for everyone. I believe the waffles are to die for. It has turned into one of our regulars – – we are probably there every other week. The staff is super friendly and the prices are very reasonable....More

Good breakfast as all Original Pancake House's provide. The same situation as at all of their locations wait time begins at about 8:30 and lengthens from there on, so best is earlier. The dining room somewhat crowded but not excessive. The hard decor in all...More
