The wait for pancakes and shredded hash browns is officially over in Mississauga.

The city’s Erin Mills neighbourhood is now home to one of the world’s best-known breakfast chains after months of eager anticipation from diners who wondered when the location, which had been undergoing renovations for some time, would finally open its doors. 

According to IHOP (yes, the famous International House of Pancakes that you had to travel to Brampton or Niagara Falls to enjoy), it is now open in the old Panera Bread location at 2575 Eglinton Ave W., just across from the Erin Mills Town Centre parking lot. 

The Panera Bread location closed its doors for good about three years ago. 

IHOP announced the opening on its official Instagram account on May 27. 

“IHOP Mississauga is open now,” the post, which beckons people to “have a delicious brunch” says. 

Much like the Brampton location, this one also serves Halal options. 

The restaurant is known for serving a variety of breakfast dishes, including pancakes (think blueberry, Mexican tres leches, cupcake, New York cheesecake, strawberry banana and other varieties), waffles, eggs Benedict, omelettes, crepes, sandwiches and shredded hash browns. 

The expansion of IHOP into Mississauga isn’t surprising, as the brand has been growing its Canadian footprint for some time now. Recently, the Toronto-based K2 Group of companies announced plans to open at least five IHOP restaurants across southern Ontario. IHOP opened a location in Brampton in 2022. 

According to an earlier news release, the Canadian expansion is part of a non-traditional development agreement with Dine Brands International, a full-service dining company that franchises IHOP and Applebee’s restaurants in the country.
