When it comes to the morning meal, Milwaukeeans prefer The Original Pancake House, which has locations in the old "Coffee Trader space" on Downer Avenue and on the busy Bluemound Road strip in Brookfield.

The Original Pancake House won first place in our readers' poll on the strength of its signature items like the apple pancake, melt-in-your-mouth crepes, fluffy omelets and sugary, air-filled Dutch Baby pastry.

A pair of East Side staples -- Beans & Barley and Ma Fischer's -- ran a neck-and-neck race for second place, with Milwaukee classic George Webb finishing fourth. editor's choice: Beans & Barley
