IHOP to deliver to Highland Park, then the rest of Columbia Heights

I can't decide if this is a great or terrible. The Wash Biz Journal reports that our always-packed IHOP will start delivering across the street to Highland Park, and then sometime later to the rest of the neighborhood. This sort of makes sense, as the place often has long waits, but as Missy Frederick points out in the WBJ article, it's not hard to make pancakes.

That said, it does take longer to make certain things on the menu (say the Stuffed French Toast Combo, the 11-piece Breakfast Sampler Combo, or whatever this is), and some might argue that IHOP's breakfast stuff has a special goodness -- and special badness for you.

Plus they already do carry-out.

I have trouble wrapping my head around the mindset of a person who is willing to walk from their apartment in Highland Park down to the lobby to meet a delivery guy, but is NOT willing to keep going another 50 feet to IHOP's pickup window.

Yeah, totally. I live in the Highland Park building and there's been many a' late night where I find myself making the trek across the street to pick up chicken fingers from IHOP.

That said... if they were willing to bring it to my door, I would probably order from them at least four times a week. It'd be too good to pass up.

I wonder if they'll deliver a hottle of coffee?
