My Thoughts

My family and I love IHop. We eat there quite often and at the same one. We went in to try some of the new holiday items. I got a pumpkin coffee and we also got the banana bread french toast. It was very hard to pick and choose an item because they all looked really good.

Here is a photo of my pumpkin coffee.

It didn't look like the photo, but I figured it would still be good. It was good, but not as good as I had expected it to be. It taste more like coffee with whip cream. However, before you decide not to try this drink, I would like to state that most of our food that evening wasn't as good as we usually get, so I'm not sure if it was just an off evening. I would get this drink again to try because in the past, I've had very good coffee flavored drinks from them.

Here is a photo of the Banana Foster French Toast.

These were very tasty and no complaints. Only thing we noticed was that it didn't seem like they gave us the full amount. The description read 4 halves and we only got 2. Again, I think the location we went to was having a very off evening. But as far as taste, this was really good. The banana bread was moist and delicious. The bananas were fresh and the caramel drizzle added the overall taste.

IHop has a lot of delicious items they are currently offering and worth a stop in to try them. Lots of pumpkin an caramel!  I'm hoping to make it back before the 3rd to try the pumpkin waffle sundae. We were eying it last night after we finished out meals.

I went to IHop for the first time a couple months ago. It was worth the trip. The food was good and the people were really pleasant.

I use to love going to IHop but haven't been there for a while now. I missed all of the holiday goodies and would have loved to try the banana bread french toast. Boy that sounds so good. Oh well, maybe next year I'll grab the grandkids and go the the IHop for one of their holiday treats.
