The Original Pancake House is coming to Buckhead at the old Brio location.
The Brio closure in August of 2017 left a hole in the Buckhead restaurant lineup on Peachtree. But pancakes are on the way to fill the gap, and our stomachs.
What Now Atlanta reports The Original Pancake House will open an outpost in the spring of 2020 (exact date not yet announced) at 2964 Peachtree Road, the old Brio location. The all-day breakfast chain will be a nice addition to the walking distance dining options for Crestwood residents.
The Original Pancake House was started by Les Highet and Irma Hueneke in Portland, Oregon in 1953. With a diner decor and a “pancakes plus” menu, it quickly become an American classic. It has grown to over 100 restaurants nationwide including other Georgia locations in Alpharetta, Savannah, and well-known LaVista Road spot.
Many are still not over the Buckhead IHOP closing on Christmas Eve 2012. So it will be nice to once again have pancakes on Peachtree.
