Though I tend to shy away from chains, especially breakfast chains, TOPH is an exception. I first fell in love with their famous Apple Pancake at their San Diego location. I was thrilled when they opened a location in Orange. Be prepared for crowds on...More

My husband and I have eaten at locations in Wisconsin, New Jersey, and 3 different locations in California. We have never been dissatisfied. I love that they make everything with real ingredients on site. There's usually always a wait, but it is well worth it....More

I haven't eaten here in a very long time. I ordered the pancakes and a poached egg. Both were good, not spectacular. Howard had the Pecan Waffle. It was delicious. He raved about it. The disappointment came with the bill. Coffee was 3.10 a cup....More

This was the first bad experience with this location. We came early Sunday mornin. Service was slow and our server appeared to be overwhelmed. Food came out cold. The pancakes came late but were hot. Expensive breakfast for slow service and cold food.

If you're willing to sacrifice the bells and whistles, then the food is good. This trip was all about lingonberries. Yummy, but I expected a lingonberry syrup and got maple. The few times I've been here the staff always seems harried and they always have...More

This small pancake chain is just the best! Huge breakfasts, so be ready. I like pretty much everything here, but my favorite is the '49er flapjacks. Also worth trying: the pecan pancakes and the German pancake. I was here with a friend on a weekday,...More
