International House of Pancakes

The International House of Pancakes or "IHOP" is a North American restaurant chain that specializes in serving United States breakfast foods. Although it does have other menu items (such as hamburgers or french fries), its specialty lies in preparing pancakes, waffles, omelettes and the like.

Some locations are open late or even all night, and recent ad campaigns have featured slogans such as, "Why not eat breakfast for dinner tonight?" Other ad campaigns have revolved around weirdly-named menu items such as the "Rooty Tooty Fresh & Fruity Breakfast," which consists of peaches and/or strawberries on top of pancakes.

Each table has its own coffee thermos, and each of the following types of pancake syrup dispensers: Blueberry, Boysenberry, Butter Pecan & Maple.
