Pancakes, like UFOs, are ethereal, weightless disks that usually appear in the early morning or late night with the ability to stun humans into stillness with a powerful syrup beam. Comatose yourself into happiness with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of classic breakfast and lunch fare at The Original Pancake House in Roseville.
Founded in 1953 in Portland, Oregon, The Original Pancake House has since put local hungers to rest by using only the highest-quality ingredients such as Grade AA butter, real whipping cream, and a secret spy-guarded sourdough starter recipe to craft each breakfast dish. The wide-ranging menu includes blueberry pancakes ($8.29), light and lemony Dutch Babies ($10.29), crêpes ($9.29), omelettes ($10.39), waffles ($7.19+), flap jacks ($8.29), and huge, perpetually replenishing reserves of specially blended coffee served with whipped cream ($2.79). The Original Pancake House offers a charming abode where butter and jam meld with lovingly lavish early morning fare to energize diners like an edible game of underwater field hockey.
The Original Pancake House
More than 20 types of golden-brown pancakes populate The Original Pancake House’s menu alongside omelets, waffles, and other hearty American breakfast dishes. Since 1953, the family business’s morning specialties have been prepared with a commitment to real ingredients such as pure whipping cream, hard-wheat unbleached flour, and butter made from fresh sweet cream. Powdered sugar lines the rims of oven-baked dutch baby pancakes, and granny-smith apples simmer in oven-baked pancakes. Unique ingredients add distinction to house specialties such as gourmet crepes garnished with sweet cherry-wine sauce, and gluten-free customers are welcomed with specialty gluten-free pancakes, waffles, and french toast. To accentuate the flavors of each meal, The Original Pancake House pours full glasses of fresh-squeezed orange juice and brews its own signature coffee blend.
Dinner is also served at The Original Pancake House, offering a special dinner of the day, new sandwiches like the French dip, burgers, garlic fries, dinner crepes, salads, and more. Dinner diners may also select from the full breakfast menu (oatmeal excluded), allowing patrons to enjoy a Dutch Baby or apple pancake after dark.
