You might think I’m lying but…this was only my 2nd trip to an IHOP, ever. Yes, it’s true. I think my feelings about breakfast have been made pretty clear. My daughter was giving me the “are you crazy” look when I asked if they had more than pancakes. Oh, I’m sorry – this place IS named after pancakes.
After our stay at the weird Alabama hotel, we swung by for breakfast before cruising into Destin. I really just wanted coffee <–the story of my life.
I loved the hostess – she was like a drill sergeant. She might not have been personable but she was getting the job DONE. I can appreciate that.
Early morning. Must have coffee…
It’s not fancy. And, it wasn’t amazing coffee. But it got the caffeine job done.
And, my son got some hot chocolate – he’s quickly becoming a hot chocolate connoisseur. Is there such a thing?
I thought the different types of syrup were cute.
I struggled with what to order – I don’t like fluffy items in the morning. So, I settled for a bacon omelette with avocado. AND…I don’t have a picture. I have no clue what happened there – total camera fail. But, I got my omelette and it didn’t come out with avocado because they were OUT of avocado. Information that would have been useful BEFORE ordering. But, whatever, I still had bacon. It was okay. The hashed browns were crispy on the outside but failed on the inside. And, again, my foodie soul was unimpressed.
Other items ordered…
Puke. I couldn’t even watch my son eat these. Way too much chocolate (with syrup!) for the morning hours!
And, the infamous IHOP pancakes
I took a bite of my daughter’s and yes, they were good. 😉
I’m indifferent about IHOP – it was fine. It served it’s purpose for our breakfast trip. Fed my hungry hippos and gave me an abundance of coffee.
