the original pancake house (white plains)

I have been anxiously waiting for them to open (i have never been to one and not an i-hop fan). but after driving past so many times and seeing no progress ,i'm wondering if they are still planning to open ,and if so when ? does anyone know?

  1. Am in the same boat as you are. Signs are still up so the best one can do is keep an eye out. For now.

        It's at the northwest corner of Hamilton and MLK Jr.

        I've seen posts promising that it will open in January, then became Febuary, then March. Haven't heard anything new.

      2. About 2 weeks ago my husband and I drove around there one night looking for it but couldn't find it. It was dark, but we didn't even see signs.

        I think it's on the opposite side of the street of the mall where DMV is, on the side by McDonald's...address is listed as Hamilton Avenue. But we didn't see anything.

            On the website it says "Spring 2014" so there is still plenty of time for it to open.

        2. That Mall is out of the way. I've lived in White Plains 9 years and I forget that it is even there.

            it is not in the mall-but directly across the street with the parking it would have to be more of a destination

          2. Eagerly awaiting the opening as well. I go to the ones in the Detroit burbs at least once while visiting my in-laws, it's way better than IHOP. Hopefully, the crowds aren't as insane for the White Plains one as they are for the ones in Michigan - if you don't show up before 9 a.m. on a weekend, you're waiting an hour-plus for a table!
