Pancake House

About us

was founded in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Their original menu of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes has gained national acclaim and remains unchanged to this day.

In 1999, the Original Pancake House received the James Beard Award in the category of "America's Regional Classic Award".


Our batters are all made from scratch, every day, and are carefully prepared and blended by hand using only the very freshest and finest quality ingredients available. Their preparation takes time and special care and the results are well worth the effort.

Our recipes use only the highest quality ingredients such as 93 score butter, pure whipping cream, fresh Grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our sourdough yeast. The coffee blend we use is specially roasted just for our restaurant. Our ham and Canadian Bacon are naturally hickory smoked, and our smoked bacon is sliced extra thick.

Welcome to The Original Pancake Houses in Woodmere and Fairview Park, Ohio! We hope to see you often!
