My husband and I ate at the Original Pancake House, on Parmer Lane, for breakfast Sat. morning; it was our first time to eat there.

I had three “Gluten Free” Original Pancakes which were so delicious!! They were nice and thick, and had substance to them. The soft whipped butter and warmed syrup was a nice compliment to the pancakes. I also had 2 thick strips of turkey bacon, which were a bit over cooked. My husband enjoyed his breakfast of Eggs Benedict w/regular bacon, and a half order of Buttermilk Pancakes. The coffee was piping hot and yummy.

I wanted to compliment our waitress, Daniela. When I told her that I had to eat “gluten free” because I have Celiac; she seemed acknowledgeable about what I was saying, and showed me the GF items on the menu, and explained the cooking process in the kitchen area, which made me feel, at ease. Thanks! We will definitely be back!

This location has amazing service and really great food, definitely worth the wait. There were at least 6 flavor of gluten free pancakes to choose from. I went with the pumpkin which had cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top, just awesome is all I can say especially with the crispy bacon I ordered. My pancakes looked so good that the lady at the next table stopped the waitress to ask what they were. It was such a wonderful treat to get GF pancakes that I didn't need to make myself and tasted great too.

Amazing pancakes and corn beef hash. The waitress knew exactly what was gluten free and which one was not. I would definitely come back again.

Gluten free pancakes in lots of flavors, I've had bacon and pumpkin so far and I am extremely pleased. Also- no up charge for GF! My hubby says the regular pancakes and omelettes are great too.

Separate GF menu with several GF pancakes as an option. Wait staff said she asked cook to clean cooking surface prior to my order. Staff was receptive to GF request. Bacon is awesome. Visited two days in a row and would return (visiting CHL).

Their GF pancakes are so fluffy and delicious! I've been here 3 times and haven't gotten sick at all. We did takeout for Mother's Day and the GF orders came in a separate bag. Mine was marked gf in multiple places. They really only have the pancakes marked GF so they're all I've tried other than the bacon. I'm sure they could do eggs too but not waffles or breakfast sandwiches.

Delicious bacon pancakes! GF wasn’t on the menu, but my waitress was very knowledgeable about what could be made GF and also let me know about their dedicated cooking area for their GF pancakes. It was delicious and I felt great afterwards!

I would be cautious eating here if you are celiac. They technically offer gf pancake batter but it is cooked on the same grill top as gluten pancakes and when my partner asked about their cross contamination protocol they joked to just not tell me about the cross contamination risk with a 🤫. I dont know if that employee still works there but they've lost my trust and offended me when they implied celiac is all in the head or that my full consent about what exposure risk I might take is not needed or a joke. Some celiacs are more symptomatic than others with exposure but that doesnt mean they arent experiencing damage to their intestines all the same. Not cool.
