At the Original Pancake House in Denver we serve a delicious variety of breakfast and brunch favorites including pancakes of all kinds, crepes, French toast, fluffy omelets, Belgian waffles, benedicts and other hearty egg plates. Feature dishes are the German style oven baked Dutch Baby Pancake with a custardy bottom and light airy sides, and the Apple Pancake with Sinkiang cinnamon sugar glazed Granny Smith apples – both customer favorites for many years. Other favorites are corned beef hash and eggs, thick cut honey cured bacon and eggs, biscuits with homemade sausage gravy and fabulous, locally made green chile served on unique omelettes and benedicts. We also offer gluten-free pancakes and lighter items such as fresh fruit, Greek yogurt and homemade granola and old-fashioned thick rolled oats.

Our TRADITION

The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years experience in the culinary field and their comprehensive knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes, they were able to offer without compromise a unique and original breakfast menu.

Always keeping true to the values of quality, service and friendliness established by my grandaunt, and carried on by my father in Salem and Bend, Oregon, I was gratified to bring The Original Pancake House to Denver in 1996, serving many of the same traditional recipes I’ve seen customers enjoy all my life.

Our recipes demand the highest quality ingredients, and preparation takes time and very special care, but our customers agree the results are well worth our effort. It is our constant objective to serve you the finest breakfast available anywhere using only fresh, wholesome ingredients. We promise to offer a clean, friendly, family atmosphere with superb food and consistently great service.

We put our tradition into practice every day. Tradition is delicious!
