Family House of Pancakes is an old school family run restaurant. The staff is friendly, the portions are large and delicious and the price is reasonable. Be prepared to wait if you visit during the breakfast rush but it is completely worth the wait!

Be hungry when you visit or be ready to eat lots of left-overs. Their omelettes are THE BEST! There's always a long line on Sunday mornings, so plan ahead. Fancy it isn't but if you want excellent food and service, this is your place!

We went on a Wednesday morning about 9:30 and the place was packed. Because it was so full it became extremely noisy. However, food was very good and service was quick. Would go again.
