Not real happy with lunch menu. Others wanted breakfast, other lunch options were not good, or very many options. Had the chicken BLT. Chicken seemed old, stomach was a mess after it. I won't be back. And no French fries.

Was blown away by the fresh OJ and my wife loved the coffee and the bacon which was super thick sliced. The service was on the slow side in both the initial taking of the order and the food arriving. But the eggs, pancakes and sausage were all great and the portions didn't overstuff you upon completion. We shall return... More

The food was fine not exceptional and the server was not very friendly. We had to wait and ask for part of our order. Didn't get water Refills and not to good at customer service. The Western omelette was good and a big serving but not a regular one, it was baked and pretty good.

This is a nice, family friendly restaurant. There's a bin of toys for the kids to play with, which is a huge plus when you're trying to distract a toddler. The food is consistently good as is the coffee. Service is friendly. The crepes are delicious.

Love the Dutch baby and the huevos rancheros and extra thick bacon. You may have a wait but it's usually worth it. The coffee is very good too. I bring my own maple syrup since its against my religion to put corn syrup on anything.

Heading to pa from long Island. Searched breakfast and found this gem a few minutes off of Rt 80. 6 cooks in kitchen, all busy. Friendly young staff, clean restrooms, play area for kids. Food was outstanding. Will file this restaurant in my "best places" to have breakfast. Thanks to those who posted previous reviews.

Giving the family a choice of where we should go to breakfast ends up being a no brainer. The Original Pancake House wins hands down! Best pancakes, best waffles and my personal favorite is the fresh strawberry crepes! The strawberry crepes are so good I can't convince myself to try one of those humungous omelets that go by my table.... More

All the food we ordered was outstanding. Peach pancake, very large, two people to eat, chocolate chip pancakes, pigs in a blanket, fresh strawberry pancake, bacon was thick and not overcooked. Would visit often.

Delicious breakfast with very reasonable prices. We went on a Tuesday morning around 11 am, and it was not crowded at all. The service was impeccable. We got the peach pancake to start (which is really more like a pie than a pancake), and it was delicious. The blueberry pancakes were wonderful too. If you ask, they'll add fresh blueberries...
