Founded in Portland, Oregon, in 1953, The Original Pancake House has since put local hungers to rest by using only the highest-quality ingredients such as Grade AA eggs, 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, and a secret spy-guarded sourdough starter recipe to craft each breakfast dish. The wide-ranging menu includes blueberry pancakes ($7.95), light and lemony Dutch Babies ($9.25), crêpes ($6.95–$10.95), omelettes ($8.25–$10.95), Belgian waffles ($6.75 - $10.25), flap jacks ($7.95), fresh fruit, and more. The restaurant also offers a full lunch menu on weekdays, featuring wraps, sandwiches, and salads. The Original Pancake House offers a charming abode where butter and jam meld with lovingly lavish early morning and afternoon fare to energize diners like an edible game of underwater field hockey.
