This breakfast was a perfect one, and exactly what you would expect of an American breakfast when you’re from Europe. The pancakes were fluffy and delicious! The bacon and eggs were very good. And a special thank you to Mary who made us feel at...More

I know it says "pancake house" in the name, but I was surprised to find an entire page of their menu dedicated to different kinds of pancakes. Pleasantly surprised! Being a native Nebraskan, I had the Nebraskan pancakes (which I had never heard of). They...More

Great breakfast, eggs Benedict perfect, blueberry pancakes, juicy, but the bacon tasted very salty, ham was good, stick with the ham!! Service was excellent, we were in a hurry and they were very accommodating. Gluten free offered for our granddaughter.

This place has cakes that most have never thought of or contemplated! All very tasty with cottage cheese on the top of the list for me. They have Dutch "puff"baby cakes, crepes, and even waffles. Eggs are well prepared and bacon is thick and cooked...More

We spent a few nights in Eugene ib August, and we went to the "Original" all three morning while there. I love the fact that so many of the employees are still there. They have been there for like 30 years. Awesome service, and food!

Two Navy buddies (one from Springfield, the other from the East Coast) and their wives met here for breakfast . Great pancakes (the chocolate chip was great). Waitress was great in catching laughter and stories of the Old Salts.
