August 15, 2011 at 3 p.m., the Original Pancake House closed.

The Wayzata Bay Center has been the home to OPH for the past 17 years, but it is no longer. Due to the reconstruction of the Bay Center, the Pancake House will be moving to Plymouth.

When asked about the move, Charlie Mejia, restaurant manager, said, “it’s hard because our customers have been so loyal to us, and now we have to leave.” But he made clear that the new location will be better. He is very excited to see the faces of their loyal old customers, as well as a crowd of new faces at their new location.

The new location is at the intersection of CR-6 and 101, OPH is unsure on a date that the new location will open, but Mejia is hoping for the end of October or the beginning of November.
