Great Breakfast Menu Available All Day

Nothing beats having IHOP pancakes with breakfast. It's good, fast and you don't have to do anything but enjoy. We put this on our calendar at least four or five times a year. And it is reasonable for the quality and service.

Typically I would not think that an Ihop would be a good restaurant to review but for this Ihop I am making an exception. Out for an early morning walk we decided to stop in for breakfast. This Ihop was immaculate. Service was good. Breakfast selection provided me with a nice choice of a vegetable omelet. I did find the... More

Breakfast nicely prepared and adequate, enough choice for all 4 of us (2 couples). No less expensive than hotel dining room though.

It's an IHOP "express" - more a fastfood than breakfast thing. But there is no other IHOP in the center of San Diego. Probably they will Start one soon!?!?

Ihops are awesome. This one is no exception, brilliant prices for brilliant food, just don't expect to fit in much after eating here! Huge portions Ofcourse.. Pretty average service, but I don't think it's really about that when you go here...
