Always good breakfast-type food and very good service. Open until 2pm, so stopped in for lunch around 1pm. Great time to go as the breakfast crowd is gone. Quick service and you aren't feeling rushed to get out by 2.

For four years, I've driven past the Original Pancake House on Portland Road and Salem and scorned the thought of eating there. On several occasions, colleagues at work have suggested we have lunch there. I always cast the negative vote. Last week, I finally conceded,...More
