Breakfast served all day and pancakes served a variety of ways are the hallmarks of this diner-style restaurant. – In Short
The first International House of Pancakes opened in a suburb of Los Angeles in 1958 serving a menu of hearty breakfast favorites. Today the restaurant still serves its signature dishes like the original buttermilk pancakes and pigs in blankets: sausage links wrapped in hotcakes. Other breakfast items include waffles, omelets, French toast and crepes. Non-breakfast offerings include sandwiches, burgers, entree-sized salads, and dinners like T-bone steak, pot roast and herb-roasted chicken.
Good breakfast, bad for your arteries – Like any IHOP, the food is pretty darned good. I love the pancakes. And the chicken fried steak! MMM-mmm. But as with any of these delicious items, watch the portions or your heart and gut will pay you back later. This particular location is a little on the dank side. Windows seem to provide very little sunlight. The staff could use some training too. But as with any restaurant, flavor is king. This IHOP provides the flavor but misses the mark on all other attributes, so I'm calling it average.
Skip the Fried Chicken – Great breakfast but, man, skip the fried chicken. I don't know how anyone could screw up making fried chicken but this IHOP does.
Best Pancake Breakfast in LA – I love pancakes for breakfast.
On a recent visit to L.A. I treid a whole bunch of places.
On my last morning I tried this branch of ihop and had the best pancakes of my whole visit.
Superb! & in a nice, clean, spacious environment.
