Is an authentic American restaurant with several locations in South Florida, where no matter what time you arrive you can choose the menu of breakfast, lunch or dinner. Located in Aventura is one of the favorite places for locals and tourists. The pancakes and eggs served in their various forms and flavors, share the menu with a wide range of... More

My husband and I had breakfast at this location. We are on vacation from California. The service and food were great. We met Suzi who was very friendly and awesome. She was setting tables and cleaning as if she were a regular employee. She is the General Manager who is down to earth and made our visit nice. She even... More

At the beginning this place was awesome but now is not as good as before. I think they can do better.

Love this place!!! We used to go to this restaurant back in NJ since we moved to Florida and found this place, we come for breakfast any other weekend. Omelettes here are the best, they're cooked in the oven, and are delicious, as well as the pancakes of course!! and the service has been great every time..:-)

My friend had Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes which he enjoyed. My son had Pancakes the first time & Pigs In A Blanket the second time... More

Told the hostess we were 5 people. She said "no problem, it will be about 10 minutes". 30 minutes later after many people skipped us, we asked her about it. She said "you didn't put your name on the list" & she had no recollection of us. Didn't even apologize & was so rude. Such an awful way to start... More

The OPH blows every other breakfast place out of the water. Everything from the eggs to the freshly squeezed OJ was amazing. Really- my family of 6 all felt the same way. The service was great, fast, and very attentive. The food is incredible. Orange juice is the best I've ever had, the thick slices smoked bacon are unbelievably good,... More

Pancakes, bacon and eggs. All quite good. Service is good but the kitchen is a bit slow at peak times. Very understandable.

Came here for brunch on Saturday. Our server was terrible. He was so disinterested in us from the very start. I ordered eggs and bacon. When it came I had three rashers of bacon on my plate. I remembered that the menu specifically said you got "four thick slices" of bacon. So, I pointed out to the waiter that I... More

The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field, and their extensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes they were able to offer without compromise this unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim. Our recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Welcome to our house, we’re serving up the Next Best Thing to Breakfast in Bed!
