What restaurant would you say flips THE best pancakes?

  1. LeRoy's on Huntington Drive in Monrovia.

    1. Big ones: the Griddle. Little ones: Musso.

      1. My personal favorite (at least in So. Cal.) is the Original Pancake House in Anaheim: . The apple pancake is superb.

          Concur! OPH is awesome. Other items worth mentioning are the Fresh OJ, Crisp Bacon, GERMAN PANCAKE with powdered sugar & Lemon wedges, very good Ham and Cheese Omelette(very light), decent coffee.

            OPH is great, but I can't stand the coffee at the branches in Orange County. You describe it as "decent." I've wondered if my problem is OC water, which I'm not used to. Is there a water-quality problem in Orange County that some of you have adjusted to?

            I really like their French Crepes, Forty-Niner Flapjacks, Swedish Pancakes, and Pecan Pancakes, and the coffee at most OPH's ranges from good to excellent. Only in Orange County and at the two Phoenix outlets have I found such strange brews. To me, it tastes like it was made from flute spittle.

        2. Try BluJam Cafe.

          Get the blueberry pancakes.

          1. I second the rec for LeRoy's in Monrovia. Awhile back, they were even on TV for "best pancakes"! Enjoy!
