We were extremely impressed with the speed of service, hot food, and great customer service.  It also was much less dated on the inside than we were expecting, which was welcomed! We felt that the prices were just right and everything on the menu sounded fantastic - soo many things to choose from. We will have to go back! My only critique is that I ordered the potato pancakes, and they were pretty flavorless. They had a crispy outside and were done perfect. Great texture, too. But I would have liked some onion either on the pancake or maybe green onions on top? It just really needed that oomph of flavor.

My all time favorite place to get breakfast food in Madison. Food is great!! Personal favorites is Swedish pancakes, 49ers, apple pancake and corn beef hash. Kids love their chocolate chip pancakes and oo I do too!  service is always so good. Everyone is so nice and accommodating...truly is a family. I always recommend this spot!

Those who don't know are missing out. The Original Pancake House is the best pancake house there is. Yes it is a smaller chain (hard to call this a chain in all honesty)  and that's amazing because you can get to it in different states. If I see a Original Pancake House I tend to always visit because it's that good! The Madison location is no different! It's very good and worth going too! Dutch baby, 49ers, speciality pancakes, the Apple pancake (if you want desert for breakfast and breakfast for desert) are all amazing options. To be honest, I dare you try their standard pancakes and tell me it's not better than the other breakfast places out there. I would also argue that out of all the best breakfast and brunch places in the world that original pancake house still has them beat when it comes to the variety and tastiness of their pancake offerings. There is so much effort that goes into this master offering of pancakes and it pains and worries me that when I mention this place more people have either never heard or haven't made an effort to go to. They truly do not know what they see missing out on! If your in the fence or don't believe pancakes can be elevated beyond what you grew up on make sure you try. I highly doubt you will be disappointed and at the very least can tell you it puts other chains to same.
