We went for breakfast around 10:30am on a Monday morning. I ordered the French toast and it was absolutely fantastic. This is the third time I have ordered this dish at this restaurant and it never fails. The French toast doesn't have a cinnamon flavor...More

First things first the service was not all that great, we waited over 45 minutes for someone to even take our name. We tried to put our name in when we got here and they told us to go wait in the line that someone...More

The pancakes and oven baked omelettes are sooo good. I love the fluffy pancakes and the delicious omelettes (skip the sherry mushroom sauce--not my fave). The food here is super and served w huge servings, so careful on adding sides. I can't eat it all...More

My family loved our breakfast. If you get there after 8 on the weekend, be prepared to wait. The Dutch baby is a specialty that takes extra wrong if you order it.

Love going to breakfast here! I ordered an omelette, which was so big I had a doggy box to take home. My husband had the strawberry crepes which were heavenly! Our friends each had the belgan waffle which they said was quite good!

Stopped here on a long road trip because of the positive reviews. Was not disappointed! Conveniently located for our route, got there early enough on Sunday to avoid a major wait, and was expertly guided through the menu by our waitress.

Not just another breakfast diner. Real butter. House cured bacon. Custom blended Kona coffee. Inventive menu. Did I say potato pancakes? Not to mention friendly service, history and deserved popularity. Prices reasonable too.

If you love going out for breakfast, OPH is for you. If you don't like to wait or rub elbows with others, it's not. They're pros at service and do a fine job of managing the throng. Our pancakes flew out of the kitchen and...More
