IHOP has 3 brand new pancake dishes, just in time for their 55th birthday! What better way to celebrate this milestone than by giving customer's more of what they love: Delicious, inventive breakfast foods, done the way only IHOP can do them?!
For a limited time, IHOP customers can enjoy this delectable trio at their local restaurant. Choices include Tiramisu Pancakes, Banana Graham Nut pancakes, and Jelly Donut pancakes. Yes. I seriously just said Jelly Donut pancakes! Here's a more detailed description of each variety:
· Jelly Donut Pancakes – Fluffy buttermilk pancakes filled with layers of luscious raspberry jelly then topped with glaze, more raspberry jelly and powdered sugar.
· Tiramisu Pancakes - Buttermilk pancakes and sweet mocha cream topped with a drizzle of chocolate, whipped topping and a dusting of cocoa powder.
· Banana Graham Nut Pancakes - Sliced fresh bananas grilled inside buttermilk pancakes layered with marshmallow cream, graham cracker crumbs and crushed honey-roasted pecans then topped with cinnamon cream cheese.
Don't they sound fantastic? These awesome new additions start at just $4.99, and can be ordered a la carte or as part of an IHOP Combo, which can include two eggs, done the way they like them, optional choice of crispy bacon, pork sausage links or a grilled ham slice, along with IHOP restaurants’ signature golden hash browns.
We went to the IHOP on S. Arlington Rd. in Akron, Ohio. When we arrived, I was immediately impressed by the well-manicured landscaping at this location. You could definitely tell that the folks at IHOP take great pride in all the little details that make their customers' dining experience special.
Dan, my husband, being the chocoholic that he is, ordered the new Tiramisu pancakes. These came drizzled with tons of gooey chocolate syrup, and topped with a mountain of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder. Yum! He actually ordered this as part of an IHOP combo, so he also got some scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links, and golden hash browns to go along with his chocolatey pancakes!
Heidi, our server, was very friendly and quick to get refills, etc. She was pleasant and definitely did her best to make sure we were enjoying our meals. The only problems we had were the fact that our orders were wrong. My cheeseburger wasn't what I had chosen off of the menu, and neither Dan nor Kyle ordered scrambled eggs in their combos. (They had both requested over-easy.) Since the restaurant was busy and we were dining with toddlers in tow, we chose not to bring attention to the matter, and we enjoyed what we received anyway. We all left with full-bellies and we all thought our meals tasted great.
So if you're looking for a great family-friendly dining experience and you love breakfast food, I would definitely recommend giving IHOP a try. Their new signature pancakes are inventive, delicious, and sure to satisfy! Hurry on over and try them while you can!
