Richard Walker’s Pancake House

On our last day in San Diego, some of our girls asked the front desk person where’s a good nearby place to go for breakfast. We were suggested Richard Walker’s Pancake House and so that’s where we headed. We were warned though, it’s a very popular place and there could be long waits.

Now when I saw their advertisement on a San Diego magazine, they advertised the Apple Pancake. If you remember, I ate at this place in Kirkland, WA called The Original Pancake House (post here) and they had the exact same thing. In fact, the menus are very similar. I wondered if they’re the same company but they have separate websites, so I’m guessing one is copying the other.

But I must say, this place looks nicer than the other one.

So now on with the food!

Richard Walker's Pancake House: Banana Flap-jacks

O chose the Banana Flap-jacks.  In the menu it said that the bananas were baked into the pancakes, but as you can clearly see that’s not the case..  She said that they were good.  We all tried a piece and the pancakes were nice and fluffy.

Richard Walker's Pancake House: German Pancake

Fannypack and I shared the German Pancake.  It tasted exactly like the Dutch Baby (which this place also has, as a smaller version of the German Pancake). but fluffier and better.  It smelt SO GOOD when it arrived.  Fannypack and I really really enjoyed this.

Richard Walker's Pancake House: Icing sugar and butter

Same as at The Original Pancake House, this was served with butter and icing sugar.

Richard Walker's Pancake House: house-hash

And that wasn’t it!  It also came with your choice of side of bacon or house-hash.  Fannypack picked the hash.  It was just ok though.  Honestly, after eating the Pancake, we couldn’t even eat this.

Richard Walker's Pancake House: Thin Swedish Cakes

M ordered the Thin Swedish Cakes.  They were quite interesting.  They’re almost like DeDutch’s pancakes but even thinner.  It tasted like the layers in our German Pancake.

Richard Walker's Pancake House breakfast meal

Lastly this was W’s choice…it was probably the most uninspired breakfast at Pancake House.  What can I say about this?  Nothing.

I still liked this place though. By the time we got out the lineup was so long. After visiting Seaport Village (around 2 hours later) the lineup was still long. We were lucky to get a seat so quickly.
