In the sixties, you could find 20 kinds of pancakes at Uncle John’s Pancake House on East Colonial. You could also find a late night bites with hours until 3:00 a.m. That’s according to this ad that appeared in a 1967 copy of “The Attractions of Orlando and Winter Park.”
Today, you’ll need to drive a little further down Highway 50 to the IHOP for your pancake craving. Uncle John’s is long gone and the restaurant has been repurposed for decades. Simply delicious coffee? Not here anymore. It’s now the home of a medical office provide chiropractic and alternative medicine.
