“Great local place!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We went for breakfast and everything was very good. The service was friendly and prompt. I had eggs, country ham and their Fabulous Potato's -- I'll go back the next time I'm headed to the mountains

“Prepare to wait or get there real early”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

When we are passing through Cherokee, NC, riding north on the way to Gatlinburg to hike or on the motorcycles, we usually stay at The Newfound Lodge and head just up the road a bit for breakfast at Peter's Pancake House. Buffets don't do it for us (across the street), but Peter's does some good, fresh breakfast cooking; crispy bacon, excellent home fries and real fine sausage gravy. MMM! However, I would not recommend the corned beef hash, unless you like stuff that comes directly from a can with nothing else done to it. We saw it's origins and that was that.

Service is as fast as the stuff can handle with theway they turn those tables. It's almost with the wait to watch the cooks: never very fast, measured pace; not too slow, not too fast. Quite a show, almost like going to a Carabas and sitting at the line cook bar. Good food, great staff and always entertaining. Try the biscuits! SUPER!

“good breakfast”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We had breakfast here twice in the 3 days we were in Cherokee. Good food and great river view if you sit in the back room. Great way to start the day!

“Downhome goodness!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Every time we visit Cherokee, NC (which is quite often) a trip to Peters Pancake and Waffles is a MUST! The biscuits and gravy are TDF as are the backpacker pancakes! Yummy! Although parking can be a bit of a crap shoot depending on what time of the morning you arrive, the wait usually isn't that long. The service can be a bit on the slow side. However, in their defense they are the breakfast hot spot in town and are usually swapped with hungry mountain-goers.
