Although originally constructed as a house before the turn of the century, the building that now is Uncle Bill’s Pancake House remains mostly unchanged. It continues to exhibit the charm and nostalgia of the once sleepy and relaxed downtown beach atmosphere.
From the Daily Breeze:
"Service is fast, and the banter is even faster. This is an admirably old school joint, that’s translated just fine into a new school world.
The breakfast dishes — all of which are too big for someone intending to hit the beach in a Speedo — are divided into “Award-Winning Omelettes,” “Traditional Beach Breakfasts,” “Manhattan Breakfast Specialties,” “Pancakes & Waffles,” “Eggs Benedict,” “Cereal & Fruit” — and the “Mexican Corner,” home of the huevos rancheros, the Southwestern breakfast burrito, and the gordito burrito (“bring your appetite,” says the menu).
Tempting as the huevos were, I had my heart set on the hash — I’ve long been a great fan of breakfast hash, a dish I didn’t discover till I left the safety of my parents’ house, and found that food could actually have flavor, as well as keeping you alive.
