I have grown up eating at The Original Pancake House in Michigan, so when in Portland, Oregon I had to stop and try the original Original Pancake House. It was absolutely excellent! The food is delicious, it is presented beautifully, and is brought to the...More

I am biased because I grew up a few miles away and came here often. A true original though and nothing's not good and quality. A real one time house. Incredibly well trained cheery staff. Apple pancake is the famous dish, and but the Spanish...More

This is the type of place people who travel a great deal generally go out if their way dine at. No credit cards-just cash. If you want a treat, order the Dutch baby pancake. It easily feeds two. Their bacon is great and in berry...More

So the cutest little house with a kind of Swedish feel. I always get a perfectly made ham and cheese omelet; it comes with three pancakes that I can not eat. I am too full, but they warm up nicely. Great butter, coffee, cream and...More
