The restaurant's massive mascot looming over Lincoln Avenue at Original Pancake House""a grinning two-dimensional cook in a poofy hat flipping flapjacks""is a city icon as reassuring to Anaheimers as the Big A. And so are the pancakes""wheels of flour soaked with any number of syrups and gobs of butter. Chase them down with coffee. Good morning! 1418 E.
