We were here on mothers day. Even though we arrived before 8am we waited for 30 minutes. I'm told that's not a bad wait time for this restuarant. I will say I had the best omelet ever here. Ham/Cheese. Had an excellent texture to it....More

Great place for breakfast. Speciality pancakes are the best. Omelettes are terrific. I would suggest using the "no wait" app to get in line before you travel. All the breakfast great on one menu.

The pancakes are delicious here...the wait is usually long to get a table but it's worth it because the food is just that good. If your looking for an early meal this is your place....drive right past IHOP and go here.

This is a classic breakfast place where the menu is pretty much limited to breakfast type items such as crepes, pancakes, eggs and omelettes. While limited, what they do do they do very, very well. They pride themselves on using fresh, quality ingredients and making...More

My husband and I used to go once a week (at least) to OPH because it is the best place for breakfast/brunch in the West County area. Great service, although the lines are very long. I recommend downloading the NoWait app to start "standing" in...More
