The Original Pancake House’s Potato Omelette ($12.80) features bits of bacon and comes with a housemade white sauce that uses sour cream as the base. “This is one of our best sellers,” says manager Karen Yokoyama.

The return to dine-in service has been a joy for many, and fans of the most important meal of the day can now head down to The Original Pancake House — both on Kapiolani Boulevard and at Waiakamilo Shopping Center — for hearty meals.

Manager Karen Yokoyama and the rest of the staff at both locations are glad to be back, and look forward to serving up good old-fashioned breakfast foods to hungry guests on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Loco Moco ($10.40, by request only) at The Original Pancake House isn’t on the menu, but you can still order one. Look forward to a made-from-scratch hamburger that makes all the difference in terms of texture and flavor.

For now, the restaurants aren’t doing lunch have adjusted hours, opening at 6:30 a.m. and closing sometime around 2 p.m. Call to see if they’re open.

Heading down with Dad this week? Yokoyama suggests the hearty Seafood Omelette (special price) that comes with mahi, shrimp and scallops — all topped with a white sour cream sauce.

Strawberry Pancakes ($9.75 short stack, $10.75 full stack) are the ultimate breakfast food.

No matter the occasion, though, The Original Pancake House is just excited to be able to serve diners once again.

“Thank you for your support,” Yokoyama adds.
