The Original Pancake House – Great for Breakfast!

We started a new tradition today! From now one, we will probably be making the stop in to eat at The Original Pancake House in Anaheim, CA whenever we visit the Disneyland area. And, as I wrote about earlier today – we were at the Disney Resorts today for my niece’s dance competition.

First, let’s look at the Original Pancake House itself. Started in founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke – there is quite a string of them across the country. Just over 100 locations or so at this point. And, as their name suggests, pancakes come with just about every meal.

Ashley and I have personally tried three of the locations in California – Roseville, CA; Encinitas, CA; and now the Anaheim, CA location. While the three locations vary in both age and look – with Anaheim the oldest and Roseville the newest – we have found them to be remarkably consistent in quality of the menu offerings.

We both have our favorites.

I generally prefer their Omelets and consistently order a Bacon and Cheese Omelet. They are impressive to say the least, as all of their Omelets are rolled in a skillet and then oven baked to give you a splendidly light, moist delicacy. On top of that they taste great. The Omelets are enormous in size with a side of three famous pancakes. It is more than one cane eat!

Ashley’s favorite thus far has been their fresh strawberry filled crepes. However, they are seasonal and you cannot always get them! She has also enjoyed their waffles and pancakes on a couple of occasions.

There are two other famous favorites that we have not tried yet, the Apple pancakes (their signature favorite) and the Dutch Baby with lemon and powdered sugar.

The location in Anaheim, CA is at 1418 East Lincoln Avenue and is only about 5 minutes from Disneyland off the 91 freeway. Give it a try on your way to Disneyland and I am sure you will love it as well!
