IHOP fans rejoiced when the pancake palace opened up at the old Village Inn site off Davis Drive in East Naples. In case you've been away for a long time — a really long time — IHOP stands for International House of Pancakes and the down-home breakfast chain delivers in a big way.

Although the focus is more on delivering great breakfast food rather than the seemingly inexhaustible varieties of griddle goodies that the chain grew famous for thirty years ago, the food is excellent. The omelets make it a destination breakfast place and among the pancake offerings, the Harvest Grain and Nut cakes and the scrumptious Corn Cakes (made with cornmeal) stand out.

The decor has been completely revamped into IHOP's trademark orange and browns but the dining room still boasts the old Village Inn's cozy two-person booths along both sides of the dining wall. There's also a side room that's once again becoming popular for morning community coffee klatches.

But back to the food. The menu goes on for pages and includes lunch and dinner offerings, senior fare, heart-healthy offerings and a kids menu. But who are you kidding? Go straight for the breakfast menu. Even some of the more exotic offerings are good, including the shrimp and crabmeat omelet, although creative diners can always create their own. Start at $7.59 and add 50 cents per ingredient. You can't go wrong.

Other top taste sensations include the country-fried steak, served with scrambled eggs and a side of pancakes. It's a southern breakfast sure to please. And don't forget to tip your waitress!
