Original Pancake House opening in Norco

The bad news is that Norco location of Food Connection, which opened about a year and a half ago, has closed.

The good news is that work is progressing on its replacement, an Original Pancake House!

We’re big fans of the Original Pancake House and wept openly felt a little sad when the Riverside location shut down a while back.

Of course, that location in the Adams Plaza was doomed by a dismal economy, a change of heart from a neighborhood market and a fickle university owner.

No matter. We’re just glad there’s going to be a new location here in the Inland Empire.

The restaurant is at 1750 Hamner Ave. The location’s hours are already posted on the chain’s website: 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
