The Original Pancake House
Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke, The Original Pancake House draws upon the many years of experience in the culinary field between Les and Erma, not to mention their extensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes, allowing them to offer without compromise a unique, original menu which has gained national acclaim. The Original Pancake House is a second and third generation family business, which takes great pride in maintaining the high standards that make our food so outstanding. We now have over one hundred franchises from coast to coast, which have won local and national acclaim. Our recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Our batters and sauces are made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen.
