- Took the team to the Original Pancake House in Falls Church. Long a favorite it is far and away the best breakfast experience I’ve had in my time in DC. Apparently it’s a national chain of sorts – but could have fooled me. Honestly, DC is a bit starved for good breakfast joints – there is the IHOP by the Ballston metro, but that is less good than urgently necessary. The Original Pancake House also does pancakes – but the variety is much more interesting. It is not all whipped cream and fruits – the Swedish Pancakes with ligonberry play almost crepe-like. The pigs in blankets I had were perfect. This does not even mention the Dutch Baby – the giant popover-based sweet breakfast treat – very light and very well done. Good job!
And now – more bathroom:
