The Harvest Pancake House has been our favorite destination for breakfast and brunch from past 4 months specially over the weekend. It was just a coincidence when we got to know about this place and since then we became habitual to this place.
Located on West 63rd Street,Westmont, this place is mostly crowded on weekends and weekdays don’t differ a lot.It is a family restaurant with ample seating space specialized in traditional American breakfast and lunch whether it’s pancakes, waffles, scramblers or sandwiches.
Lets start with the Menu which is quite big and everything there is worth a try. We have tried our level best to taste almost everything on the menu(except salads and soups) and would like to share what should not be missed..
Waffles: We are a big fan of waffles from Harvest,crispy base topped with fresh fruits and whipped cream is always the best thing to start my weekend.
As I haven’t tasted waffles earlier, my love for waffle started from Harvest only. For toppings there is a lot to choose from like strawberries, blueberries, banana, pecans, chocolate chips etc.
Crepes: Personally, I am not a crepe person, but I have tried couple of them like Tutti Frutti Crepe and Banana crepe filled with Nutella topped with whipped cream. Indeed a great choice for kids !
Pancakes : Next on the menu are pancakes, you can either opt for Oven baked or the regular ones. Our choice is the regular one served with topping and whipped cream. They provide it as per your cravings, Short stack has 3 while full stack has 4 pancakes. As I have mentioned earlier, same toppings as for waffles are available for pancakes too. They are very soft and melt in the mouth when poured with maple syrup
French Toast: No breakfast is complete without French Toast !! Go for either Classic French toast or the Stuffed French toast (filled with cream cheese) both are good option to start your morning. I would recommend the stuffed one..crisp from outside and creamy cheese inside topped with fruits and whipped cream makes you drool over it.
Wraps, Sandwiches and Burgers: Not only the sweet but there is a lot to choose from in the wraps, sandwich and burgers, served with fries, potatoes and soup (which we always exclude as we are not soup lovers on breakfast).
I personally love Cheeseburger for its juicy patty which goes really good with a fresh bun and Chicken Malibu for its big tender chicken piece topped with crisp bacon and cheese. From wrap section, Santa Barbara wrap with chicken strips and freshness of tomatoes and lettuce is my personal favorite. Must try Chicken Melt,Buffalo Ranch Wrap & Chicken Philly.
Eggs, Scrambler or Omelette: Eggs are always a great breakfast choice and here you can opt from scrambler, omelette, skillet or make up your own.
We love Cowboy Scrambler (heavenly for meat lovers) as it has all the goodness of ham, sausage and bacon along with eggs and it comes with potatoes to make it more desirable.
Also the Country Skillet is worthy enough, as it has everything just like cowboy scrambler and comes with potatoes and toast as an additional follow ups.
Apart from this,there are also Salads and Benedicts to choose from and well in beverages you can go for fresh orange juice, iced teas, hot tea or like us go for bottomless coffee regular/decaf.
Staff and service: I must say we never ever had a bad day here. I would like to mention the warm welcome we get every time we visit and people do remember us ask for and greet and treat very well. Especially the owners are very kind and the lady recognized us since our second visit.
