This is easily the best place to go for breakfast in the Longview/Kelso area. I no longer live in town and really wish they had a place like The Pancake House near me. I always have to stop by here when I'm back in town. There is usually a wait but it's worth it!

Heading to Astoria on the coast for a little exploration and Longview came on the radar right around breakfast time. We noted a bunch of cars at the Pancake House and decided it was worth a try. Entering, it was warm, homey and obviously populated with a lot of local patrons as they all knew each other and were sitting... More

Good old fashioned local restaurant filled with locals. Friendly and efficient staff complements the generous portions at reasonable prices. Especially like the fluffy pancakes. Yummy.

Unprofessional staff! Very clicky staff. Older lady so rude to young girl that works there! I have gone there for years but my last two times were horrible. I actually left crying. Jennifer and short stocky girl are just horrible servers. Recommend eat at home.

We eat here every Sunday for breakfast. It will be 3 years in December since we moved here and started our Sunday visits. The food is OK but the staff is better. We tried 5 other places and this is the best in town. It is wheel accessible. Opens early in case you are going fishing or something. Kendra, Caitlyn... More

Great friendly staff and family owned for years. Have never had a bad breakfast here. Plenty of selections on the menu and they pour a great cup of coffee. Also serve lunch as well which I've never tried but I'm sure is also on par with their breakfast items. The place to go to start your day.

Great start to our trip down the Oregon Coast. Linda and her co-workers were incredibly friendly and efficient. Good was delicious. Atmosphere electric with every table full of locals enjoying this great eatery. Even sang me a birthday song. Unexpected at a pancake house! Must try if you are in the area.

Always a wait that is well, well worth it. Portions are giant. Go very hungry, or not, because you'll get that way after said wait. Bacon is thick, crispy and delicious, and the Cornmeal Pancakes are hands down the best example of them that I have ever had anywhere.
