The first Original Pancake House to open in Fort Worth will begin flipping pancakes, flap jacks, and crepes in a matter of days.

Located at 4646 SW Loop 820, at the corner of Hulen, this former Bennigan’s has been slow to transform. Green awnings and corporate signage featuring the happy, pug-nosed chef with his crepe pan firmly in hand, has been up for months.

They began training staff this week and still have a few light fixtures left to install, but the plan is to begin a soft-opening on Monday Sept. 18 (meaning keep your expectations at a reasonable level as the new restaurant is still officially working out the fine details), with a Grand Opening officially set for October 6.

Original Pancake House does not cater to wee hour cravings like some other pancake restaurants. They target the morning and lunchtime crowd instead. Hours will be Monday – Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The full menu includes soups, salads and sandwiches, but they are famous for specialty pancakes like the Dutch Baby with powdered sugar and fresh lemon. Other notable breakfast items include lacy Swedish pancakes with authentic lingonberries, and a Danish style crepe called Cherry Kijafa topped with Montmorency cherries simmered in a Cherry Kijafa Wine sauce.

With seven Texas franchises studded across Dallas, Grapevine and Denton and Addison, Original Pancake House has long been a favorite to our East. One more location is scheduled to open as far afield as Houston in 2017. And, why not spread their wings, Original Pancake House is well-known for its consistent quality since opening the first Texas franchise in Dallas in 1987 (quick math – Fort Worth has been waiting for an Original Pancake House to call its own for almost 30 years). The wait is finally over and I suspect they will receive a very warm welcome.
