A little backgrounder on Pancake House

I am admittedly a rural girl and I have not been acquainted with Pancake House until I got into university in the metro where I finally got exposed to the various restaurants available to me.

According to their website, the Pancake House was originally established in 1970 but it was only in the 2000s that it got acquired. Today, Pancake House:

"...continues to be associated with delicious comfort food, distinctly homey dining experience, and friendly service – all of which have kept generations of families coming back for more."

In 2005, Pancake House was recognized as that year's Outstanding Filipino Franchisee while it got the Hall of Fame award the following year.

Food offerings at Pancake House

Despite its name, Pancake House boasts of a wide array of food offerings available to its customers. It serves both local and international dishes to better suit the cravings of every person that passes through their doors.

Pancake house offers various rice meals, pasta dishes, salads, and of course, the house specialty, pancakes and waffles.

They also serve typical Filipino favorites such as tocino (glazed pork), longganisa, beef tapa, tinapa and bangus.

Set meals for voracious eaters are also available. Set orders could be any one of the following:

  • Hot roast chicken special set
  • Spaghetti club special set
  • Pan chicken special set
  • House specials set
  • Hamburger steak special set, and lastly
  • Hot roast beef special set

The servings here are pretty big so these set meals are sure to make your button pop, almost. The burger steak special set is really lovely, the burger is grilled very nicely and right now, just thinking about it makes me salivate.

How about pancakes and syrup with sausages on the side, along with a fresh mango shake? It's the perfect way to really rise and shine!

For the pancakes, they sure live up to their name as the cozy shop has a lot to offer. Choose from classic pancakes, pancake towers, and pancake medleys. They have a variety of pancakes to choose from that will surely make you drool all over the place. I guess this is why a lot of people have identified Pancake House as their favorite restaurant: because they have food for everybody. Chocolate, cheese, strawberry, blueberry, chocolate chip, banana, walnut, peach, and the list goes on! With this many options, I guess Pancake House should rename the restaurant as Pancake Kingdom. LOL.

Seriously though, I normally have a hard time picking what to eat when I'm there because everything on the menu just looks so yummy! You can even order your pancakes or waffles with various sides such as bacon or sausages. BACOOOON. Yeah, 'nuff said.

The verdict

I've recently had the chance to eat again at Pancake House and I must say that it really was a refreshing change. While most of its contemporaries serve the usual American burgers, or Japanese cuisine, or Filipino food, only the Pancake House specializes in serving us with all the breakfast we want, all day, everyday. Though its branches can sometimes be too packed, people will often just choose to wait to be seated instead of going anywhere else. I guess that is a manifestation of how much people love the place.

Ever tried Pancake House or have yet to try the place? Feel free to share your thoughts on your (future) experiences. :)
