She's never been there before and we don't have one in Manhattan, so I thought it would be nice to take her there. But, what is a new vegan to do? I guess I'll just have to drink orange juice.

I suspect that if asked nicely they might put together a bowl of fruit for you.

They have good food, but nothing really veg*n-friendly.



The last time I went there, I ordered their REALLY big garden salad, i think it was - $6.99! But once I told them I didn't want egg, turkey, ham and cheese on it....there was hardly anything left on it at all.

I hope that on top of that they didn't charge you *extra* for a special order.

I haven't been to an IHOP in a long long time, but don't most places that serve breakfast have side orders like oatmeal or a bowl of fruit like Anthony11 suggested? You could also ask to see if their wheat bread is acceptable for toast.

I have a funny "vegan asking questions at IHOP" story. I asked what was in the french fries, and the waitress stopped for a second, and then said: "Potatoes."



And I backtracked and tried to explain that I wanted to know about additives/flavorings, and what kind of oil they were fried in. To the best of my knowledge, they are fried separately from the meat stuff, in soybean oil. I guess that makes them "accidentally vegan." ^^



My usual order at IHOP is apple juice, a plain English Muffin (specify no butter), an order of grits (specify no butter), and a side of applesauce. I put jelly on the E. muffin and salt up the grits, and it's doable. Not exactly a feast, but it gets me through.

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

Are you sure the english muffins are vegan?

At the particular IHOP I visited, they were. But that can vary depending on which vendors a particular restaurant uses. You'll want to check to be sure.



ETA: There was a specific IHOP that I used to go to in ATL before I moved.

I just took a quick glance at their breakfast menu posted on their website and it looked pretty grim. You will just have to be really "creative" in your ordering.

Would you be up for making her a great vegan-friendly breakfast at home? It sounds like you're spending a day or so with her. If she isn't overly picky about other people cooking in her kitchen, it could be a great alternative.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

Are you that attached to IHOP? There are sooooooooooooooooooooooo many good places to go in NYC.

There is a place in the village called the Organic Grill that has vegan waffles and eggless omlettes with soysausage and bacon. They also have non vegan stuff too.

They have the best breakfasty potatoes. Or Kate's Joint has awesome breakfasts.

Both would be enjoyed by anyone, for that i am sure.

But if you go to IHOP...fruit and an english muffin with jelly are tolerable. Just Not exciting.

I second Skylark. Your Mom will have other opportunities to go to an IHOP, and it's not all that special. If you do go there, I would call ahead first and try to arrange for a special meal.

Do they have oatmeal, I know dennys does, I've gotten that before, oatmeal and raisons, then you can just put some sugar on it, But i agree with the last 2, i prefer local restaraunts, sorry bad spelling, they have much better food, and care more about the customers,
