The Original Pancake House
The Original Pancake House was founded in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. The partners spent many years experimenting with national pancake recipes. Their experience led to the creation of the restaurant’s fabulous menu. Each pancake dish uses 93-score butter, pure whipping cream, fresh Grade AA eggs, hardwheat unbleached flour, and sourdough yeast. The sourdough yeast makes the pancakes light, airy and fine-textured. Your experience at this place won’t be complete unless you order the pancakes with a cup of coffee. At The Original Pancake House they blend, roast, and grind their own coffee.
