Panqueques {Spanish for Pancake}

The morning after the Queen B concert after cleaning up camp, famished, obviously, we headed to the only place in Minnesota that could cure our hunger: The Original Pancake House.

I had never been before, but Renée and Ben said it was absolutely necessary that we go.
(That's subjunctive tense, people, you take that seriously.)
(Grammar statement. We don't really have subjunctive in English, but if you speak a foreign language, babe, you're my kindred spirit.)

We went to the Edina location. It's the original one, thus the decore. 

We were all a bit weird because we were extremely hungry.
My hungry face...don't get it confused with my...other faces.

The photo says it all.

R passed the time takin' photos like a true blogger...
or non blogger.
I think she should start one maybe...or do a ghost blog on Lemons???
Any votes?

R and I each got the hash browns and eggs.
Eggs over-easy to drench the browns.
The browns are delicious! Super crispy on the outside and buttery and light on the inside with onion.

I had a side of the banana pancakes. 
I love banana pancakes.
It either stems from Olga, my host mother from Guatemala, she always made me banana-cakes...or Jack Johnson.


 Benjaminio had the steak and eggs.
He said it was awesome.

B also had the bacon pancakes. 
I think it is safe to say that they were the BEST bacon-cakes we have ever had.
No way was there too much bacon.
Ahem, Renée.

 Based on the last photo I think it's safe to say that this was the best place we could have stopped for breakfast.
Don't you agree?

If you're in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and you're looking for a sure-thing for a great breakfast joint head over to the Original Pancake House. There are two locations and a third one to open soon.



  1. I was just wondering if there might be a slight possibility there was too much bacon!!!! I'll never say that again, I promise!!! Forgive me??

  2. so... i want those pancakes. i think pancakes are one of my very favorite foods. looks superyum. :)
