My husband came home from work one day, excited about a restaurant mentioned by a friend. He said we could go there for dinner and looked up their website to get an idea of the menu. That’s when we realized that it was a breakfast place; unlike I-Hop, The Original Pancake House operates for limited hours only: 7 AM-2 PM from Monday through Saturday and 7 AM-3 PM on Sundays.
We had completely forgotten about this place until last Sunday, when we suddenly decided to go there for a late lunch. Who would expect a breakfast place to be packed at 2.15 in the afternoon? Well, we were pleasantly shocked to see almost every table occupied.
Even though it is a breakfast/brunch restaurant, their menu has a Lunch/Dinner section with savory crepes.
|Crepe with Chicken and Vegetables and a Side of Potato Pancakes|
The potato pancakes were crispy and light and absolutely delicious. The crepe as is was slightly sweet but with the combination of the chicken, mushrooms, carrots, and a light sauce, it was sumptuous.
Lovely, golden brown waffles that were crispy on the edges and soft as I cut into them. The highlight was the citrus flavored syrup that brought it all together.
I love hot chocolate but have been disappointed many a time with concoctions that are either too diluted or too sweet. The hot chocolate here was, however, just perfect.
Our Rating: 4 out of 5
We plan to keep going back to the restaurant to try the remaining items on their menu, so keep a look out for an updated review.
