Is The Griddle coming to McCall? An update

In late 2016, Boise Weekly reported The Griddle had won a fight with McCall City Council to relax rules on chain restaurants.

Now - more than a year-and-a-half later, The Griddle still isn't serving up breakfast in the mountain town.

"Regarding our potential location in McCall, we have been looking to open a Griddle location in the McCall area for quite some time," The Griddle General Manager Ashley Ferguson said. "When we are looking to open in a new location, there are many factors that we consider.  While we do hope to eventually open in McCall, all of those pieces are not yet in place."

Ferguson said a possible location hasn't yet been solidified, and they do not have an estimate on when a restaurant could open in McCall.

"We love the community of McCall and hope to open a location there when the time is right and the pieces have fallen into place," she said. "As with most of our other expansions, if it is right for us as a company, the time and the location will work itself out."

Iconic McCall breakfast restaurant listed for sale

If you've been to McCall, you've probably had a meal at the Pancake House. Pancakes, eggs and cinnamon rolls the size of a plate are all on the menu.

Now the iconic Central Idaho eatery is for sale.

For $3.1 million, the business and real estate it sits on are for sale.

The current building was constructed in 2002, replacing a smaller restaurant on site. The large 16,000 square foot building hosts the restaurant and a variety of associated businesses - including The Christmas House, which is also for sale.

The marketing flyer for the property says the Pancake House has a "20-year history" of financial growth.

The flier doesn't list a reason for the sale, and an attempt to contact the owners George and Bonnie Bertram was not successful.
