Authentic, genuine breakfast since 1953

- serving Normal & Bloomington -


We’ve been serving pancakes the way you like them for more than 65 years.

The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Today, we’re bringing their vision of serving authentic pancakes, waffles, eggs and other traditional breakfast recipes to Normal, Illinois. We use only the best ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own sourdough starter.

We invite you to try our signature breakfast items like the Apple Pancake, which is baked to perfection with a deliciously rich cinnamon sugar glaze, or the Dutch Baby, an airy delight served with lemon, whipped butter, and powdered sugar. Our omelets are rolled in a skillet and then baked for a lighter consistency. Bacon is thick cut, fruit is the freshest of the season, and our Original Pancake House Coffee is specially roasted to be the perfect complement to your meal.

We even have gluten-free and vegetarian breakfast options!
