Great place to fuel up for the day. Had the eggs beni, but was eyeing up the Danish thin pancakes... Guess I'll just have to return!

This place is way over rated.the food is very average and pricey for what you get. My husband ordered the Danish pancakes which come with choice of fruit topping and whipped cream$9.95. It is one large super thin pancake folded into a half with about 1/2-1/4 cup of fruit. I chose the combination platter which consists of one thin pancake,... More

This is obviously a popular spot with line ups for breakfast service. The pancakes were good, but nothing exceptional. The service was very good and the place has a fun atmosphere.

This place was pretty busy at 10 AM on a Wednesday morning. My mom ordered the Dutch pancake special and I got the sausage and cheese omelette special. Both were very good, and reasonably priced ($8.99 and 8.49 respectively). Both came with lots of good fresh fruit. Service was courteous and prompt. No issues, a reliable good breakfast.

This is a nice place to stop for a fun meal. The pancakes with cinnamon apple are my favorite. They have indoor & outdoor seating.

This is a great place and has been here for years. The danish pancakes are amazing. Fresh strawberries and REAL whipped cream. Not the can stuff ( not that there is anything wrong with that ). Fresh squeezed orange juice you must have in a mimosa. Always a wait but so worth it.

I have been going to Paula's Pancake House for MANY years as I have visited the valley. There is always a long line of people waiting to get in. This is an indication of how good the food is. The servers are friendly and fast. The food comes out rather quickly, and this is how they keep the tables moving.... More

Me and my family were visiting from England and decided to try out this lovely looking place for breakfast. The staff were extremely friendly and kept drinks permanently topped up! The place itself was very clean and tidy and a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast was one of the best I have had on my trip so far! The pancakes are... More

Love eating at Paula'a. We had the California omelet and the veggie omelet. Both extremely satisfying. Service was good and they were more than generous with coffee.

Paula's pancake house is great. The waitress's are dress in their little Dutch outfits and the food is worst every penny. You can't beat the atmosphere and the location to this place. You have to come visit. You won't be sorry for the drive, Trust Me.

Thank al b
