Pancakes, like UFOs, are ethereal, weightless disks that usually appear in the early morning or late night and often stun humans into stillness with a powerful syrup beam. Comatose yourself into happiness with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of classic breakfast fare at The Original Pancake House in Puyallup.
Founded in Portland, Oregon, in 1953, The Original Pancake House puts local hungers to rest with an array of fresh, made-from-scratch breakfast choices, cooked to order until 8 p.m. every day. The wide-ranging menu demonstrates its training in conflict resolution by bringing together sweet and savory flavors in offerings such as the bacon-filled buttermilk pancakes served with whipped butter and hot syrup ($8.50). Meanwhile, a bushel of oven-baked granny smith apples adorn the signature apple pancake topped with pure, sinkiang cinnamon ($10.50). Yolk-related creations include the irish omelette, distinguished by its charming brogue and fluffy eggs paired with homemade hash composed of kosher corned beef, potatoes, onions, and cheddar cheese ($11). An array of sides, including hash browns ($4) and toast with preserves ($1.50), stand ready to provide gastronomic accompaniment.
The Original Pancake House
Made-from-scratch recipes and fresh ingredients have been setting The Original Pancake House apart from its breakfast-spot competition since 1953. That's when its owners established an all-day empire committed to ingredients such as pure hard-wheat unbleached flour and butter made from fresh sweet cream.
Today, The Original Pancake House cooks across the country still construct scrambles and omelets from fresh Grade AA eggs. Powdered sugar lines the rims of oven-baked dutch baby pancakes, and granny-smith apples simmer in oven-baked pancakes (two of more than a dozen styles of pancake on the menu). Even the toppings are made in-house, including whipped cream, specialty syrups, and sauces. To complement these flavors, staff fill cups with fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juices and coffee blended specially to match the Original Pancake House's menu and upholstery. Although each location takes on the local charm of its surrounding city, all of them share in common a homey atmosphere that welcomes families with perks such as color-in place mats and kids' menus.
Name aside, The Original Pancake House isn't just a breakfast spot—in fact, it stays open for three meals a day, or six if you follow most doctors' advice to take a small pancake break every few hours. The savory side of the menu holds meat-and-egg combos and savory crepes stuffed with cheese and veggies.
