If you have never experienced the Original Pancake House expect a long wait! They do not take reservations but they have the nowait app. Go to nowait.com and down load it! They have more than just every kind of pancake. The wait is exciting!!!

This is my go-to spot for business breakfasts. I always arrive 20min early to get a table before the meeting starts. The food is fantastic and they serve huge portions. I highly recommend the eggs benedict and pancakes.
