Just about every weekend you'll find me at one of the Original Pancake House restaurants, the Edina location or the Eden Prairie location. The Eden Prairie location is the newest, and while it's furthest from my place in St. Paul, it is worth the drive. The wait staff are fabulous and are awesome at recalling special little things about how I like my coffee, what juice I usually drink, etc. The food is always excellent and has only gotten better the long this location has been open. A plus about the Eden Prairie location is their breakfast bar area, where you can often find a spot to sit without the long wait for a table on a busy weekend morning. Anyone and everyone in the Cities should try the Original Pancake House a least once - and then you'll be hooked just like me!
Pros: Fabulous food, large menu, great coffee
Cons: Temperature in the restaurant is too cold - bring a sweater
