We had a wonderful breakfast sitting outside. Eggs Benedict and pancakes were the best. Really nice area.

It's a great little place for breakfast. We ate there three days in a row. Every meal was delicious. The portions are plentiful. The staff was friendly, if a little harried (it was VERY busy) but never made you feel as if you were in the way. They managed to still make you feel welcomed and answered all questions without seeming to be busy. For a place as busy as this one, the staff still managed to deliver hot, fresh food in a timely manner. I highly recommend this one!

This place is amazing. The strawberry French toast is delicious with soooooo many strawberries. We had breakfast here everyday of our Chicago stay. Great value too

This was my second trip to the Original Pancake House, but it won't be my last. First time I had the cherry crepes. They were delicious. This time my wife and I split the apple pancake. It takes 15 - 20 minutes, but well worth the wait. It was huge. Big enough to share. Full of apples and covered in cinnamon. The fresh squeezed orange juice was delicious as well. I had a side of the chicken and apple sausages. I wish I had a box of these guys to bring home with me. Looking forward to a return trip

We ate here twice during our stay at the Thompson.

We were very pleased across the board with this place. Service was excellent and food was very good and plentiful. They have a large menu of breakfast items to fit almost any pallet. Food both times came out quick and very hot which is hard to do with breakfast. We would go here again without any hesitation.
