March 4 is the International House of Pancakes’ official National Pancake Day. While only IHOP offers free pancakes to the hungry public, other enchantingly delicious options are available around campus as well. Check out these places to get your fix of buttery, syrupy goodness.

International House of Pancakes 

IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day by providing patrons with a free stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes any time between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.

In turn, the restaurant accepts donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in an effort that has raised $13 million since the annual fundraiser began in 2006. While not particularly remarkable, the plain pancakes at IHOP are tasty enough for your National Pancake Day fix, especially since the event is for a good cause. (235 E. 14th St.)

Cafe Orlin

Conveniently located on St. Marks just a few blocks away from campus, Cafe Orlin offers some of the city’s tastiest pancakes. Traditionalists will find joy in Cafe Orlin’s classic buttermilk pancakes. For the more adventurous, bananas or blueberries — or both — can be added. For those who want a little more spice, the cafe offers pumpkin pancakes topped with cinnamon yogurt.

The eatery is trendily designed with brick walls and hardwood floors — a comfortable environment fit for a cozy, late brunch. Outdoor seating is also available for those who want to brave the cold. (41 St. Marks Place)

Prune 

If you are looking for the classic taste of a rich, sweet pancake taken to a new level, look no further. Prune offers Dutch-style pancakes that will fill up even the hungriest brunch-goer. Baked in an oven rather than a frying pan, these pancakes are thick, heavy and topped with both baked pear slices and powdered sugar. They also come with a side of Canadian bacon to add some variety to the meal. (54 E. First St.)
