In celebration of National Pancake Day, we’d like to spotlight one local mainstay: The Original Pancake House — the first location of its kind.
In 1953, the family-owned franchise was founded in Portland by Les Highet + Erma Hueneke — who also created the restaurant’s original menu. With fresh batters and sauces made in-house each morning, the diner has been flipping hotcakes in the community for nearly 70 years and now has over 100 locations worldwide.
Let us know — what’s your favorite item on the menu? We heard the specialty Apple Pancake + Dutch Baby dishes are particularly delightful. 🍽️
