The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Now with more than 100 locations in 28 states across the country, the Original Pancake House is a second and third generation family business whose recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and their own recipe sourdough starter. Batters and sauces are made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen. Signature items include the Apple Pancake, a single large pancake smothered with sautéed apples and cinnamon sugar baked to perfection.
