The Original Pancake House A Winnipeg Family Tradition Since 1958
In 1958, Winnipeg entrepreneur Wally Guberman opened The Original Pancake House on Pembina Highway. The restaurant quickly became a popular favourite for family outings, business lunch meetings, student gatherings, and special occasions. Almost 60 years later the same familiar Pembina Pancake House sign is still there welcoming customers.
With the success of that first restaurant and armed with a business model built on creating quality food from original recipes, Wally and his brother Monty soon opened other locations around the city. Today you can choose from four locations in Winnipeg, including our newest restaurant on McGillivray Boulevard.
Welcome to Our House
We strive to make every customer feel welcome and at home. Maybe that’s why we hear so many great stories: parents bringing their children to share cherished childhood memories, transplanted Winnipeggers scheduling a quick stop at their favourite restaurant, and tourists urged by locals to try our iconic Giant Apple Pancake.
You’ll know your satisfaction is important to us when you sit down and you are quickly offered a cup of our premium blend coffee.
You’ll taste the difference in our buttermilk pancakes, crepes, oven baked pancakes, and waffles – each created using one of the four different batters we still make fresh in our commissary. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the friendly atmosphere, caring service and quality products on which our reputation has been built
We hope you will become one of our many "regulars" and let us help you create wonderful memories at Our House.
