Yes, we know chains are evil. And no, we don’t want our beloved city over-run by big brands forcing long-time neighborhood favorites out of business. But sometimes even we need to make exceptions. Especially when pancakes are involved.

The Post [is reporting] that IHOP—once known as the International House of Pancakes—is in talks to join Red Lobster, Applebees, and Baba Gump Shrimp Company in the one and only Times Square. The [California-based all-day breakfast chain](, with over 1,319 locations world-wide, would occupy a 23,000-square-foot, 3-floored space at 1540 Broadway (between 45th and 46th). The chain already has a location on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard in addition to those in Brooklyn, Staten Island Queens and Jersey.
