The Original Pancake House opened its doors on 24th ave in Portland, Oregon, the same location where my Dad first ate during his law school days in the late 1980’s and thereafter convinced my mom that she HAD to come try this great pancake spot. Although the OPH has expanded to a national franchise, I include it on my list of great breakfast spots, because that’s just what it is- delicious, consistent, GREAT breakfast.
The OPH boasts an enormous menu filled with pancakes, waffles, crepes, and egg specialties, however, my family and I seem to order the same items nearly every time. Our favorites include the biscuits and gravy, eggs benedict, the “joe” (be sure to add cheddar cheese), and the apple pancake. Most menu items are served with a side of their delicious buttermilk pancakes. In other words: prepare to leave stuffed.
Pictured here is the classic eggs benedict, a fresh toasted English muffin topped with slice Canadian bacon and two poached eggs, covered in rich Hollandaise sauce. YUM. If you love avocado and can’t say no to bacon, try their California benedict. Hits the spot every time.
The beautiful, delicious, immaculate apple pancake.
A dish that you simply can’t get anywhere else. This oven baked OPH specialty is made with fresh granny smith apples and a sticky, warm, and buttery cinnamon glaze. The apple pancake is literally what dreams are made of.
Three words: come to mama.
We love this national establishment and know that you will too. The Original Pancake House is located in more than 25 states and over 100 cities nationwide. Cheers to pancakes and hats off to a great breakfast.
