We had breakfast on a Monday morning here. The decor seems original from the day it opened but everything is clean and in great shape. Our server was friendly and efficient. The meal portions were enormous and the food was very good.

Open from 6am to 3pm, the food is good, and, as the name says, a few different kinds of pancakes, if that's your thing. The daily special offering didn't change when I ate there. There are also some "blue plate" specials listed on the menu,...More

I wasn't impressed or blow away at all. Very small portion on a chicken fried steak and Hash browns tasted like they came from a box. Pancakes were ok but not memorable.

This is a GREAT place to eat breakfast - I really enjoyed the corned beef hash and eggs over easy with a side of gluten free pancakes.

You never know about a breakfast place. Pretty hard to mess up eggs. We went to the Pancake Chef before flying out of Seattle. Over all the food was very good, prices good, service good. But I've never had a "German Pancake." You really have...More
