Our History

The Original Pancake House was founded in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field and their comprehensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes, they were able to offer without compromise this unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim and remains unchanged to this day. These recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients such as 93 score butter, pure whipping cream, fresh Grade AA eggs, hardwheat unbleached flour, and our sourdough yeast. An old fashioned sourdough starter is used in many of our batters. It is made in our own kitchen from a culture of potatoes, flour, sugar, and activated by a "start of yeast." This sourdough starter produces light, airy, fine-textured pancakes. We blend, roast and grind Original Pancake House Coffee to our exacting specifications to further enhance your meal.
