It gets a little busy on Sunday mornings, but the food is more than worth the wait - the service is great and the pancakes are to die for. Positive experience.

The service at the Naples location is lousy, so we thought we'd try the one in Aventura. The server was friendly, but the manager lacked communication skills and common sense. I was trying to stay as low carb as possible, so I ordered the steak...More

We always enjoy having breakfast at this place when we come to Aventura, great Belgium waffles and even simple eggs/bacon always delicious. But we noticed the place needs urgent renovation! Hope the owners wake up.

Well, my husband and I really like this chain and were excited to see one so close to our hotel. We weren't impressed in the way this location carried the brand's reputation. We did like the service and the way management handled our "hairy" situation...TWICE,...More

Just had one of the best Saturday morning meals at TOPH in Aventura. The wait for a table was short, our server Lisa went above and beyond our expectations, she was excellent! The eggs, pancakes, waffles, OJ, and coffee we're perfect!

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!
