The Original Pancake House franchise was founded in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field and their comprehensive knowledge of authentic pancake recipes, they were able to offer a unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim and remains unchanged to this day.
The Original Pancake House has been a part of the Eugene community since 1965. As the third established location of a restaurant chain boasting more the 100 stores nationwide, we have gained a reputation as one of the longest serving restaurants in Eugene. With our authentic menu and locally sourced ingredients, we have become a favorite spot for many breakfast lovers!
