The grill aces at Family Pancake House regale breakfast, lunch, and dinner diners with a menu of classic, made-from-scratch American comfort dishes often forged from local ingredients. Pecans slalom down an avalanche of strawberry compote in the Very Nut and Berry Tower, taking caution to avoid blueberries, fresh banana slices, and slow-moving yetis as they cascade over four buttermilk pancakes crafted from the eatery’s original 1963 recipe ($8.19). The taco special omelet tucks seasoned beef, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese under a three-egg blanket ($9.19), and the country roll-ups envelop sausage links in potato pancakes and an accompaniment of hot cinnamon-apple compote ($7.19). Hand-pressed, chopped sirloin sandwiches ($8.49) vanquish lunch and dinner hunger pangs with a hearty hodgepodge of toppings such as melted swiss cheese, barbecue sauce, or chili. A nest of mushroom sauce cradles breaded veal ($10.59) that, like a famous supermarket shelf, travels with a devoted entourage of soup or salad and daily vegetables.
Family Pancake House
For more than 40 years, Robert C. Mathwig has owned Family Pancake House and defended his sanctuary for the fluffy breakfast staple against the ravages of time, stringently maintaining the same wholesome business practices that set the cozy eatery apart from the competition on its very first day. The kitchens still make most of the menu from scratch, sourcing as many ingredients as possible from local suppliers to ensure that each order arrives to its table at the peak of freshness. The whole menu of breakfast treats and savory later-day meals is available all day long, with fluffy pancakes, crepes, and omelets sharing space at diners’ tables with grilled cheeses and breaded pork chops.
Family Pancake House takes its friendly moniker to its logical conclusion by acting as a supportive family for the community that has kept the eatery's doors open for nearly half a century. The company routinely sponsors youth sports teams, and employees often volunteer their leftover flour supply to sweaty-palmed gymnasts.
