Original Pancake House: Breakfast in Anaheim

Diana Chan February 25, 2015 American, Anaheim, Brunch, California, Three Beakers


When in America, make sure to see if there is an Original Pancake House nearby. Or at least that’s what I do. Ever since visiting one in Chicago, I’ve been thinking about their Dutch Baby and Apple Pancakes ever since then. It is a chain restaurant around America, but it was first started in Portland in 1953.


The seating is nothing fancy, but the staff are very friendly and accommodating. It was our last day in Anaheim and our group of 5 ladies with a suitcase each really stood out. Everyone else seemed to be a local.


Coffee was needed by all of us. There was no denying this.


Dutch Baby is oven baked German pancake. This is one of their signature items and it comes in 2 sizes – small and large. We wanted the large size, but the small size arrived at the table.


Served with whipped butter, lemon and powdered sugar.


Apple Pancake is oven baked with fresh granny smith apples and pure Sinkiang cinnamon glaze. It has a lot of sugar on top. It was decent here. I had a better one in Chicago.


Bacon and eggs is a classic. We needed something savoury to balance out the sweet pancakes.


Hashbrown and eggs is another good item to share with the table. Best eaten with ketchup and hot sauce.


Pancakes were beautiful and served with whipped butter.


Side of Sausages were delicious and an essential part of any breakfast.


Strawberry Waffle has their golden brown waffle lightly dusted with powdered sugar then topped with strawberries and fresh whipped cream.


We ordered everything and it was delicious! Original Pancake House was a great time for us ladies. We took an Uber here since we are not familiar with the area at all.
