My husband and I love a good omelet and pancakes. There are many restaurants around that we feel we can make our own better. But The Original Pancake House has been around for years and there's a reason why. They make the best breakfast in the South Bend region! The Apple Pancake they are infamous for, too. There maybe a... More

We actually went at noon on Saturday but my family is always up for breakfast food! The portions are very generous, friendly service, and superb omelettes and pancakes!

We love the OPH, any place we visit. If they have one, we go. We went on a Sunday morning at 9am. We were seated right away, but it was immediately obvious that they were understaffed. The staff was friendly, but lacking in service availability. The normally yummy food, was overcooked and obviously slammed in the kitchen. The poor waitresses... More

The baked apple pancakes are incredible especially when served with Ice-cream!! It's like desert. They are huge, easily enough to feed 2-3 people! Fresh squeezed orange juice and not even in FL!

We loved the OPH. The signature Apple pancakes were DELICIOUS, the server was super friendly, food came out quickly, and the atmosphere was great, very family-oriented. $8-11 per dish.

The food was good not great. We got a free stack of pancakes for Tuesday . The bacon was the best nice and meaty and crisp.

If you're into German pancakes, this is the place to go. I don't eat them, but my spouse ordered one. Unless you're a big eater you'll need a carryout container because they are HUGE. I ordered a la carte and had a basic breakfast that was very good. They also offer multiple kinds of pancakes and Belgian waffles. My waffle... More

My father and I brought my son for breakfast on a Sunday morning in January. The comforting food and staff warmed us up with pancakes, eggs, bacon, and plenty of coffee. The portions are large, even for three hungry men.

Moved 4 hours away so when we're back in south bend we've got to stop. Nice to see familiar staff. We've got our favorite choices: strawberry crepes, poached eggs, bacon, buckwheat pancakes. Great coffee.
