About Us


Our History


The Pancake Chef opened as part of  the Clarks’ Restaurant chain on July 4, 1959 and has been  dishing up great meals for nearly 60 years at the same location: 1mile north of  Sea-Tac Airport.It is one of those  inconspicuous little neighborhood places with a reputation for an unfussy  atmosphere and great food, cooked how the customer wants it, or it is prepared  again. The seating area has a large, bright,  open 1950’s style atmosphere. It also has an open kitchen, so that some interested guests may watch the meals being prepared.   The menu is varied and appealing and, not surprisingly,  Concentrates heavily upon breakfasts,  featuring pancakes, omelet’s, and waffles. Fresh oranges are squeezed daily for  the best juice around. Breakfast is available during all open hours.   As printed on all our menus since  opening in 1959, our motto is:  ·A love of good food tastefully prepared   ·A love for people and a wish to please them   ·A love for high quality, cleanliness and service   The “Chef” is open from 6:00  am to 2:45 PM everyday except a few holidays including Easter,  Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Bankcards accepted: Visa, Master  Card, and Discover – Sorry, no personal checks.   


             Our  Slogan Started in 1959 and is still the Same Three Loves: We have a Love of good  Food tastefully prepared, A Love for people, and a wish to please them, A Love  for quality, cleanliness, and service. We'll do our best to prove these are  genuine.
