As a vegan, I was a bit worried going here. Thankfully, they have options, including old fashioned oatmeal (hold the whipping cream, milk, and butter). They were happy to serve my needs and other requests, too.
For me, a pancake that requires syrup or toppings (other than butter) is not good enough for me to eat. But the pancakes at the Original Pancake House fit the bill -- super yummy. Open something like 5:30am until 2pm or so. Can be very busy on a weekend morning. The orange juice is also very, very good, but very expensive.
