Original Pancake House - Omelet
Original Pancake HouseYesterday I posted a very short message about the Bacon Waffle at the Original Pancake House. The truth is, that was the wife's breakfast. Being that I have not been to TOPH in a long time and that I was starving, I wanted something that would guarantee I was going to be full.
I went with something safe and got the Ham and Cheese Omelet. The photo below is not the best but what I like about it is the oozing cheese. Oh ... (breath in) ... yeah (breath out):
As eMusings mentioned in his post, The Original Pancake House can have some seriously long lines. When we went late around 1pm on a Saturday, we were able to get seated rather quickly. The service is great and the quality of food is the tops.
One thing I wish I snapped a photo of was how they bring out their juice. Order juice and you'll see. A small glass in a bowl. This took me a while to try and figure out the purpose but I ended up having to ask why. Our waitress (I still call them waitresses Dave) explained that they are instructed to fill the juice glasses to the very top. This is good since the glasses are not that big but it increases the chances of spilling causing sticky floors and table tops which means more cleaning. Who wants to see someone come out with a mop and bucket all the time while they are already super busy?
Anyway, TOPH in Bend is worth the wait that many have mentioned to me. Other than being packed (which is a good problem for businesses I would think) I have not heard any other complaints about the place. It's awesome!
