Strong coffee, excellent corned beef hash, unrivaled cherry crepes and fresh-squeezed orange juice like neon rocket fuel: At seven o'clock in the morning, it doesn't get better than this. The Original Pancake House uses nothing but the best ingredients and the best products, and employs line cooks who know how to work fast and clean and how to execute a complicated and worldly menu with just the right notes of comfort and consolation. The space isn't much to look at, and service is brisk, to say the least -- but at breakfast, none of that matters as much as frequent refills and grub by the yard. The icing on the coffee cake? The Dutch Baby -- a gigantic baked pancake topped with butter, powdered sugar and lemon juice.

You've got to be kidding me. I've lived in the denver-metro area my whole life and this place doesn't even deserve a ranking anywhere in the top 50 places for breakfast. My toast and bacon was burnt, there will little bugs (gnats or something) on the table, and when I tried to complain about my black toast (that no decent waitperson would ever serve looking the way it did) it took me close to 15 minutes to flag down the waiter. My boyfriend got the pancakes and they were no better than IHOP/Denny's/Village Inn.

Their food is great but the suburban atmosphere of the clientele at this location is just horrible--if you want the real thing try another city, like Champaign Urbana, since it's a chain.
