If we’re going to have a day celebrating pancakes, it makes sense we would do so at the house of pancakes, and IHOP knows how to party.
To celebrate National Pancake Day, people who visit a participating IHOP location today, Feb. 27, will score a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (and some locations will run the deal until 10 p.m., because breakfast for dinner is amazing). Now, the deal doesn’t include any of their flavored pancakes like red velvet or blueberry, but we can’t complain because their original pancakes are delicious too.
Today is IHOP® National Pancake Day®. Today we celebrate that every pancake has the right to pancake. So come into IHOP® for a free short stack of pancakes. Rejoice! pic.twitter.com/3BH4XjS63N

These stacks of pancakes are totally free, but the chain is encouraging customers to leave a donation (any amount, but it would be nice to leave the value of those pancakes) toward charities like Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Shriners Hospitals for Children. You don’t have to leave a donation, but if you are getting such a sweet gift, why not also give one? It’ll make that stack taste sweeter than the syrup on top of it.
“At IHOP, we think doing good is delicious. Every stack of pancakes we serve on our signature day counts toward helping our charity partners improve the health and lives of millions of children and families across the country,” IHOP president Darren Rebelez said in a statement.
The chain is hoping to raise $5 million in honor of their 60th anniversary, but really — they had us at free pancakes for a good cause. Now, get out there and get your free pancakes.
