IHOP is launching a new value menu today, offering diners deals from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day.

The chain’s IHOPPY Hour features deals ranging from $3 for snacks and sides to $6 for meals. On the lower end are some familiar happy hour items, such as mozzarella sticks, onions rings and french fries. For those who prefer breakfast for an afternoon snack, French toast is also available for $3.

Hungrier customers can spend $5 to $6 and get an entree, including chicken and pancakes, a steakburger or a ham and cheese omelet.

Beverages are $1 to $1.50. But unlike typical happy hours, IHOP doesn’t serve beer or margaritas—only soft drinks and coffee.

“We created IHOPPY Hour as a way to provide folks with affordable opportunities to pancake together under our blue roof even more often,” Jay Johns, IHOP president, said in a statement. “We recognize that these are challenging times, and our belief is that, regardless of what’s going on in the world, we all deserve a little happiness, or ‘hoppiness’ as we like call it.”

The promotion is running for a limited time and is rolling out in select markets as state regulations allow. The IHOPPY menu is available for dine-in only at most locations, although certain units are extending it for to-go orders.
