The Original Pancake House, Portland, Oregon

5 of 12

Before IHOP, there was Original. In downtown Portland, this
is the original Original location of the national franchise now famous for its
air-filled, oven-baked Dutch Baby pancake, which resembles a sugar-powdered
volcanic crater slightly smaller than Mount St. Helens. The choice of batters
is comprehensive: choose from buckwheat, sourdough, and even wheat germ. The
Swedish pancakes are served with lingonberries and potato latkes come with sour
cream or cinnamon applesauce. Try the “Three Little Pigs in a Blanket”:
sizzling links encased in buttermilk bliss.

Best sides: Sugar-cured hickory smoked ham and corned
beef hash.
