How to Get Free Pancakes on National Pancake Day

Local spots like The Pancake Pantry and IHOP are serving up free stacks on Tuesday, March 1.

March 1 is National Pancake Day, and there’s a few flapjack institutions ready to serve up some free, hot stacks.

The Pancake Pantry

Known for scratch-made pancakes, the Nashville icon will offer a special pancake promotion to mark the occasion, in addition to a number of exciting menu additions currently available at one or both locations.

These include:

  • On National Pancake Day, Tuesday, March 1, diners at both locations can enjoy a free short stack of The Pancake Pantry’s famous buttermilk pancakes with a $10 purchase.
  • Predators Pancakes are available at both Nashville locations until March 31. The Preds Pancakes feature four blueberry pancakes topped with a powdered sugar Predators logo. A blueberry compote, along with the eatery’s signature warm maple syrup, whipped butter and cinnamon cream, served with the pancakes. For each order sold, the Pancake Pantry will make $2 donation to the Nashville Predators Foundation.
  • Diners at the downtown location can now order mimosas and bloody marys.

The Pancake Pantry is currently celebrating the 60th anniversary of the eatery’s original location, highlighted by the recent grand opening of the SoBro restaurant. Both locations open daily at 6 a.m., serving breakfast and lunch. The downtown location is open until 2 p.m. and the Hillsboro Village location is open until 3 p.m.

This year, National Pancake Day falls on March 1 and IHOP is offering their customers one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes per guest.

If you plan on taking part, make sure to swing by your nearest IHOP from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. local time when the free pancake deal will be taking place. The offer is for dine-in only.

National Pancake Day is not only about getting free pancakes but showing support to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities.

Since the first National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP and its guests have raised over $30 million for various children’s hospitals throughout the country.
