At the tail-end of 2016, we reported that all-American breakfast specialist IHOP would be opening in Bangkok before the end of the year. 

Well, that didn't quite happen. But in spite of the brand's fairly inactive Facebook page, we've now got word that it'll be opening its doors in April at Siam Paragon (4/F). 

Known for its breakfast items served all day with extra-long hours (some branches even stay open 24/7), the IHOP chain has more than 1,600 locations across the US, Canada and Asia.

On top of its signature stack of five buttermilk pancakes, IHOP (short for International House of Pancakes) also serves the likes of French toast, crepes, omelets, sandwiches and breakfast plates.

IHOP's arrival follows that of fellow American cafe chain Clinton Street Baking Company. It's also not the only big imported brand to keep us waiting—the UK's Burger & Lobster was originally slated to open here in March, but that's been pushed back till June.
