Michael's Pancake House

25 East Burlington Street
Riverside, IL 60546

Meet us where the eggs are cooked right


Serving breakfast all day in downtown Riverside, Michael’s Pancake House is a family-owned diner with a reputation for football-sized omelets and plate-sized pancakes. 


The new Riverside diner is the second Michael’s Pancake House location for the Guadalupe family, who operates the original location in Worth with the same delicious menu that they bring to Riverside.


They are known for their fluffy pancakes and enormous omelets, including the diner’s famed Denver Omelet with ham, onion, green peppers, and cheese.


While the name references the pancakes, it’s all about the eggs at Michael’s Pancake House where the egg order is always doubled. An order of two eggs means four. A three-egg plate means six.


So bring your appetite when you come to this diner in Riverside!

The Guadalupe family operates the full-service breakfast diner for downtown Riverside. When you order your eggs at Michael’s Pancake House, you might be ordering from restaurant manager Orlando Guadalupe or his father, Miguel.


The Guadalupe family also operates another breakfast diner in suburban Worth where the menu is the same and where this family earned a reputation for killer omelets and eggs done right.


They are excited to open a location in Riverside. The Guadalupes live in Brookfield and Orlando graduated from Lyons Township High School. Bringing a full-service breakfast location to downtown Riverside feels like coming home for this family of egg experts.
