The atmosphere is funky and very Portland. The waiter and one of the cooks were wearing brightly colored tie dye t-shirts. Even though the name of the business is "The Original Hotcake and Steak House", the steak appears to be a distant and perhaps fading...More

Food is good, almost great but a bit too greasy for my liking. The chicken fried steak was great! Not dry, greasy nor fatty. The gravy was great too. Breakfast was $14 and coffee 2.50. So check was on the higher end. Staff was nice...More

I always enjoy the hotcakes when I am in the neighborhood of this hotcake house. The hotcakes are large and tasty do you only need one or two to fill up.

why would you eat at a pancake place if all you really wanted was a silly salad....the descriptions of the steak, oil and such makes this the perfect place to eat for someone who really enjoys the old style of food. Stay in canada
