Immediately seated at noisey table for two. We were served by an efficient fat moving young guy named Dana. She had pumpkin pancakes with a mound of whipped cream and I had the blueberry pancakes with a thin syrup with very small blueberries. Both were...More

Sunday morning at the pancake house. Everybody does that, right? Well, maybe in spirit, but probably not like The Original Pancake House, founded in 1953. The blurb on the back of the menu states their menu has been unchanged since the day of its founding....More

Food is very generous in portion size and delicious! No one has a breakfast this good in Metro Denver. There are some Trendy breakfast spots, but their food is not as good as Original Pancake House food. On the negative side, very noisy and crowded,...More

Great traditional breakfasts, but priced $2-5 more than equivalent meals at similar restaurants. Still, it's usually packed, and the food is very good.

Breakfast here recently with 3 others. Free parking in lot shared with other businesses. Good selection of eggs, pancakes, and all things breakfast. Plenty of vegetarian choices, though not much for vegans. Enjoyed pancakes, coffee, crepes, eggs; all entrees good. Service fine, too. However, the...More

The Original Pancake House serves a delicious variety of pancakes, crepes, fluffy omelets, benedicts and Belgian waffles. Signature dishes are the German style oven-baked Dutch Baby Pancake and the cinnamon glazed Apple Pancake. Other favorites include biscuits with home-made sausage gravy, corned beef hash, quarter-inch thick sliced bacon, and fabulous green chile. We also offer gluten-free pancakes, fresh fruit, and hand-squeezed juices.
