They have good food but I would not suggest ordering the gf pancakes or waffles if you are sensitive to cross-contamination. They do not have separate pans or ways to cook the gluten free items so there is a big risk of CC.

I absolutely love original house of pancakes. It is my favorite place to eat in Champaign. They have the most amazing gluten free pancakes I have ever had. Just make sure to let the server know you have an allergy!

Have “gluten friendly” pancakes that are the fluffiest encountered. They have only one kitchen so cross-contamination risks.

Great food, very nice staff. Fairly knowledgeable about gluten free options except for asking about butter on pancakes. The butter is definitely cross contaminated. Do not eat it.

Knowledgeable. Will go over their procedures in the kitchen and listen and answer all of your questions. My son is extremely sensitive and he always orders the gf chocolate chip pancakes. He's never been sick after eating here.

The pancakes were amazing and the server and kitchen staff were very knowledgeable! Our server ensured the kitchen staff took the necessary precautions and I didn’t have a reaction! Basically all the pancakes and waffles can be made gluten free and they change their gloves, use separate pans, and clean work areas.

They are very good about allergies. I asked for DF pancakes in addition to GF and they tasted normal! Brought out separate and had a label. So great!

They have gluten sensitive pancakes. This is not shown on their website or menu, but the server showed me several types of pancakes that can be made with this batter. They also have omelet & egg selections.
