The Original Pancake House - Founded in 1953

pancakes-minnetonkaPeople all around the globe have enjoyed eating pancakes for centuries. In 1953, Les Highet and Erma Hueneke combined their extensive working knowledge of national and ethnic pancake recipes into a unique menu, thus founding The Original Pancake House in Portland, Oregon. As a second and third generation family business, the restaurant has grown to over 100 franchises from coast to coast, winning local and national acclaim. It was voted by James Beard as one of the nation’s “Ten Best” breakfast restaurants in the category of “American’s Regional Classic Award.” Each distinctive location uses only the finest ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure whipping cream, the finest plump blueberries, fresh grade AA eggs, hard-wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Signature items include the Apple Pancake – a single large pancake smothered with sautéed apples and cinnamon sugar baked to perfection – and the Dutch Baby – an oven-baked German pancake with powdered sugar.

We’re hoping a pile of pancakes (and bacon )can bring a little bit of happiness during this difficult time! We will be open daily 7:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

We will be offering a robust but semi-limited menu as supplies last for curb side take out.

Currently we are only able to take phone orders.Credit card purchases only.(Any gratuities will need to be handled at the time of order.)

We will be delivering via Uber Eats soon.
