This place is family run but not exclusive to anyone, it has a lovely and inviting staff with friendly faces that brighten the room. I honestly love the food here. It beats every place for best.... a lot if food that would be too long...to write. Overall if you want a good place to take your family, either just passing by or to stop for a while, this place is the place to beMore

Fresh fruit is cut there and delicious. My bowl of honeydew and cantaloupe Was mouthwatering and refreshing. My daughter ordered their chicken strips and they are massive!!! They’re fried to perfection, tender and juicy. They make their own ranch for dipping and it’s thick and...creamy. We loved our experience and will be back for more!More

We wanted to have a good breakfast to start our day of travel. Read the reviews on this place and took a chance. Believe what you read. Service was not fast, but the food made up for the wait. Yum!

We read about this place before we stopped in The Dalles. It perked our interest due to serving a hearty breakfast and comfort food. We had a bit of a wait but it was WELL worth it. My husband ordered the meatloaf and it came...with homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. I had the 2 french toast, one egg and bacon with hot syrup to top it off. We will definitely come back when in the area.More

I love Momma Janes! The Harley Davidson and classic motorist decor make this little home town restaurant a place that draws people in. The food is tasty and the portions are generous. You’ll leave with a happy tummy and a smile.😃

We timed our travels to be in The Dalles at breakfast and Momma Janes did not disappoint. The eggs benedict with their smoked ham was delicious and filling. Top it off with great memorabilia to check out. You will not leave hungry!

I live on the east coast but find myself in The Dalles twice a year (spring and fall) so I have come to discover the local restaurants. One time I was searching for 10 best breakfast places in North America and uncovered Momma Janes Pancake...House! I called my daughter to see if she had heard of it (she is the resident of The Dalles, and she knew right where it's located but had not been. By the time I was ready to head out west, she had gone and was raving about how fresh and tasty she found the food! We went, and now go back with each of my trips to the PNW (Pacific North West)! Ok, the tables don't match, the dishes don't match.....you won't CARE! The food is hearty (if you wish) or light (if you wish) but very fresh and wonderful! Don't MISS one of the USA's best breakfasts, if you should find yourself in The Dalles! I won't!More

My understanding is that in most cases Dutch Babies and German Pancakes are the same thing. Different names for the same thing. However, I'm sure there are some purist out there who may disagree.
