I write about a lot of topics these days on Breakfast With Nick – coffee, beer, travel, meals other than breakfast (gasp) – but it’s still written in my DNA to seek out those early morning spots, to explore the hidden gems, the strip mall finds, the breakfast places with little online presence. That’s what really makes Breakfast With Nick fun – this is why I started the blog originally, to document discoveries in breakfast and brunch across Columbus.

So while I’m not the one to “discover” The Pancake House in Lewis Center, my visit there still bore the hallmarks of an exciting breakfast adventure, and served as a reminder of why I do this.

The names here will get confusing, so let’s be up front:

  • The Pancake House = a local family-owned breakfast diner with locations on Schrock Road in Westerville (where we had a so-so breakfast back in 2017) and this location in Lewis Center, which opened in 2019.
  • The Original Pancake House = a local family-owned franchise of a successful breakfast chain originating in Portland, Oregon. They have locations in Upper Arlington on Lane Avenue and in Westerville off Polaris Parkway.

That clears it up, right? Both worthy, pancake-centric spots with their own strengths.

I went into this visit, to the Lewis Center location of The Pancake House, not sure what to expect. I had driven past the space dozens of times, but really hadn’t heard anything about it.

The Pancake House Lewis Center sits on the corner of a strip mall on Powell Road, west of the main drag of Polaris Fashion Place. It’s decorated simply like a classic American diner, with a big, open kitchen, plenty of booths and tables, and rows of windows.
