In celebration of National Pancake Day on Tuesday, Feb. 5, IHOP is offering customers a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.
Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.
In return for the free pancakes this year, guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (or other designated charities).
Pancake lovers on Mercer Island can stop by the Central Seattle location at 950 East Madison Street or the Bellevue (Crossroads) location at 14747 N.E. 20th Street for their free short stack and the chance to give back.
