We went on a Sunday morning. Arrived at 9:30 and were glad we beat the church crowd. It was busy then but a madhouse by the time we left. This is not a fancy place to eat. You order from a cafeteria style line, get...More

This is truly a spot worthy of pilgrimage if you have a craving for hotcakes. Of course, other items on the menu are very tasty, but the hotcakes are the signature food. This is not a wheelchair accommodating place and vegans/vegetarians probably will want to...More

This is a great find in Portland! They have unbelievable food in huge portions. Whether you are looking for traditional breakfast, great sandwiches, or nice steaks, this place does it all. The downside is that you often have to wait as it is a popular...More

The cooks and the rest of the staff are friendly and courteous. There's always coffee on a self serve. When you order, just check the menu posted and order the meal you want.

What a joke! What a bunch of hype! They may have been good once upon a time, but not any more. I have frequented this place twice in the last couple of months. I'll *NEVER* go there again, and I will recommend to anyone who...More

The hotcakes are good and large, everything else just average. Little seasoning, pork chops a bit tough, hash browns a bit greasy. I'd come again for the hotcakes though. Staff just o.k.

And we found them here. Over the top huge, delicious, w/ unique Portland diner vibe. The strawberry and blueberry were to die for. We went twice! The omelets were yummy too and equally huge.

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
