A little pricey but worth every penny! You know it's gonna be a good day when there's a rainbow over the Original Pancake House. Better bring your appetite. Everything is huge.

Brunches, bloody Mary's, and mimosas are the "in" thing. But there is something to be said for some throw back, down home, good breakfast food. The original Pancake House is one of these classics.

I was looking for a good place to eat that wouldn't put a hole in my pocket and found this little gem. I still talk about this place a month later.

Our waitress personified her name - Joy. The food was well prepared and tasty, but it was the service that made the visit so wonderful. If we're ever back in Southfield, we will be back.
