The best food, the worst hostesses. – I have to agree with the others here. The hostesses are horrible. I can usually deal with it up but it send my husband off the deep end. They are wretched and you have to deal with them every single time you go there. Once you get past the ugly gatekeepers the food ROCKS! The pancakes are so good, the butter is amazing, the syrup is delicious. But the best part of the menu is the bowl of raspberries. I have not had any server issues except to say they are over worked.
Best breakfast in the Cities! – Great spot for breakfast, warm and cozy atmosphere. Always the best food and service, but the wait can be long on the weekends. Try the Apple Pancake and Thick-Cut bacon, both are amazing! 5 STARS!
Great Food | Poor Customer Service – OHP has excellent food, as I hinted at in my subject line - but let me tell you - there has probably only been a handful, if that, of time they have given me the correct order. There is always something missing - from simply an order of toast, to the worst mistake you could EVER make: Missing Bacon. Its a sham. But I still love the food.
My advice to you: Double-Check your orders to ensure consistency and quality service.
Long wait, somewhat rude at times, but, ahhh the food and the coffee!!! – I have been going to OPH since it opened almost 30 years ago. Yes, the lines are long. Yes, some of the hostesses are rude. But, I have only had a few servers that were rude.
But, when I bite into that bacon, or drink that glorious coffee, it all fades into the background.
I have learned to arrive just as the doors open and like the rest of the early risers, we traipse in and seat ourselves. The servers swing around, bring us our coffee (and cream for me) and listen as we recite our list of breakfast treats. Sometimes I try to trip up the server by ordering something different, but, they never miss a beat. If I order a waffle and bacon, I also get a side of toast as desert. One time I forget to order the toast and the server brought it out anyways. Now that is service!!.
The prices are high and the wait is long. But, bring a book or newspaper to read.
GREAT food, HORRIBLE management. – Every meal here has been the best but without fail it is painfully obviius that this is the worst run place on the planet. We have never waited less than 20 minutes and every single hostess is beyond rude, seriously inexcusably rude. If you know that you are going to be this busy all the time, hire extra food runners and staff to refill drinks. It is so easy. Teach you lousy greeting staff how to do their jobs and smile or quit. If you do go to enjoy their amazing food (it is the BEST breakfast in the Twin cities, really). Call them on EVERY mistake, from the wait time, to the lousy greeting to the lack of staff and then maybe we can get this restuarant finally running well.
Definitely NOT like Oregon – The Oregon locations that share this name are busy too, but the people are friendly & their menus much more/better brekafast fare. My 4 of 5 trips to the Edina location for takeout have been disappointing...from poor service & long waits to items missing from my order when I get home.
The food I did have (burger, chocolate chip panackages to name a few) were pretty darn good though.
An Ablsolute Must for Breakfast Lovers – This place is a little bit of heaven on earth. It's very laid back with a very nice staff. The food is incredible and worth ever dollar. Any person from 4 to 104 will love this place, as long as they like breakfast food. Everythring from the eggs to the apple pancake is absolutely incredible. If you don't get there at the right time you may have to wait a little bit but he wait is definitely worth it.
the lingonberry pancakes were wonderful! They were very thin, and I put sour creme on also.! Great!
OPH is heaven SENT! – Original Pancake House (or as we call OPH) has by far the most amazing pancakes ever possibly imagined by modern humans. My friends and I joke that the pancakes are made by magical midgets-because they are just THAT GOOD! The service could have a little to be desired, and the wait is usually long (but you can call ahead and get your wait cut in half), but it is SO worth it! I hope they open more of these, so maybe someday I can have OPH anywhere in the world!!!
afavorite – breakfast is always good and onsistent. service is friendly and your coffee is always full....
only downside is wait can be long...
