The Original Pancake House

Oatmeal? Too wholesome. Bacon and eggs? Too routine. Instead, when we wake up dreaming of the perfect way to start our day, pancakes, in all their glorious diversity, are what's on our mind, and the Original Pancake House in Woodmere is where we point our car. It's clean and comfortable, with a menu that features nearly two dozen variations on the theme, ranging from sensible sourdough flapjacks to pouffy, soufflé-like Dutch Babies swaddled in powdered sugar. The offerings could take us years to analyze fully -- and that doesn't even account for the pecan waffles, cherry kijafa crêpes, or the mushroom omelets!
