    Jagerhaus on Ball near the 57. http://www.jagerhaus.net/

    While the Original Pancake House is a chain, it's pretty darn good. http://www.originalpancakehouse.com/p...

      What she said. Jagerhaus is an outstanding choice for breakfast.

        das ubergeek/ocann:

        jagerhaus is very interesting! how's the braised rabbit? (and my apologies to the op for the slight threadjack.)

        thanks.

            Hi OCAnn,

            The braised rabbit is wonderful; cooked to perfection – tender and juicy with a rich brown gravy atop. Fair-sized portion. Very mild flavored, not at all gamey. Comfort food extraordinaire!

            Whatever you order, make sure you get toast with some of Sandra's amazing homemade plum jam. It'll ruin you for S(m)ucker's for life.

              I went this weekend and practically drank a quart of the plum jam. Delicious. Thanks for the recommendation.

            Hey, let’s make it unanimous! I too heartily recommend Jagerhaus. Been goin’ for 25 years with nary a disappointment. Home-style German fare. Awesome breakfasts (Corned Beef Hash - housemade - some of the best, Stuttgarter Peach Pancakes, fresh-squeezed OJ). Delicious Braised Rabbit, Elk, Lamb Shank, Venison and Wild Boar. Superb Sauerkraut. Same location and ownership for almost 40 years. Sandy, the owner is a real sweetheart and very cordial. Hmmh ... time for another breakfast run.

              thanks all! wow - my attention got cut short at the braised rabbit, and overlooked the lamb shanks! saw the deer and boar too on the menu. is this almost like a miniature and closer version of saddle peak lodge?

                Wow where has this rec been over the last 10 years? Any time the "game" question comes up, all fingers point to Saddle Peak Lodge. I've njver heard of this place until now.

                Oh, that's right! OPH also has an Anaheim location! I'll have to stop by next week if I'm feeling homesick for Vegas. The one at GVR casino in Henderson is one of my fave breakfast spots near my house.

                I guess it's not all that fair to judge the Anaheim location on the Vegas locations, but if it's anything similar OPH is worth visiting. (And I'm typically NOT one for big chains.)

                I will continue the trend and recommend it, but not all the things you like from the menu are in fact served at breakfast. Breakfast menu is a bit more standard. Eggs, corned beef, sausages, breads, etc.

                  True, though there are also German pancakes (with cherries, with lemon, sometimes with plums), speciality omelettes (the Schwaben omelette contains their incredibly good spätzle) and good potato pancakes.

                    Jagerhaus is open continuously throughout its business day; it doesn’t shut down between lunch and dinner, as do many establishments. If you’re in for a later breakfast and see something that you favor on the lunch or dinner menu or on the specials board (located behind the register), just ask. They are very accommodating. Many times, I’ve enjoyed “dinner” well before noon.

                      Hi jacknhedy,

                      Jagerhaus is a very quaint, almost humble establishment. It feels like eating in someone’s, perhaps auntie’s or grandma’s, home. As for the food, the game meats are the only similarity in offerings. SPL is, indeed, in another league. Both are great at what they do, respectively.

                        thanks, all. of course, just added jagerhaus to my list of bookmarked places to go eat.
