The Original Pancake House – San Diego
This is a place I tried to eat at last year, but we couldn’t get our acts together Sunday morning, and by the time we did the queue for dining was too long. This year we were better prepared.
The queue this time was only 20 minutes, but also, we arrived with adequate time for dining and errands before hitting the road at a good time.
The Original Pancake House is a true international house of pancakes, unlike the nationwide chain by that same name. IHOP is more like “how many ways can we top regular pancakes?” That’s not international. International is serving dutch pancakes, American pancakes, crepes and the like.
I got the crepes with cherries and cherry sauce. It’s a lot of damn cherries, and quite sweet. I ate the crepes, but took home most of cherries for making a cobbler or pie.
I’m glad I went, now I can check an actual international house of pancakes off my list. But I don’t need to return, not when there’s endless asian food offerings up and down the same street.
