I really miss that place. They had four different flavors of syrup at each table, and just about every sort of pancake type anybody would want. And the waitresses had those little white hats. And there was the Ms. Pacman machine that was there for about 20 years. And there was the bicycle outside with the giant front tire and tiny rear tire. That was a really cool place. Now there's that plain white building with H&R Block and an overpriced stereo store. What a shame.

Bring back my Uncle John's Pancake House!

Where was it? My favorite pancake and waffle joint was the Log Cabin Restaurant on Imperial in Inglewood.
That's Log Cabin as in the syrup.

My second favorite place for breakfast was The Wich Stand at Slauson & Overhill.

It was on Wilshire in SM, just a block west of Centinella.

BTW, why could they not instead tear down that hideous "Aaaaaahs!" store? Jackwagons!

Funny (to me) story. Back in 1969 I drove my then fiance to Tulare where her entire extended family lived, most of them on one street. We went there to announce our engagement. Over the coure of the weekend I met about 20 of her family members.

Coming out of church on Sunday (mandatory) my almost wife's grandmother, the grande dame of the clan, announced that we were all going to Uncle John's for breakfast. I groaned loudly and blurted out for all to hear, "OMG! Not ANOTHER relative!"

Try Uncle Bill's in Manhattan Beach....I think it's still there. They have as many types of pancakes and syrup. (I miss that side of town!)

Yes.

Or The Kettle (open 24hrs) if Bill's has too long of a wait.
