A great breakfast spot is worth its weight in gold, and Flappy Jack’s Pancake House is just that. Don’t be fooled by the name, Flappy Jack’s has a lot more going for it than just hot cakes, although they are admittedly delicious. This kitschy little diner serves all manner of breakfast items, from lighter than air crepes, to sizzling steaks.

The steak and egg combo comes with a choice of toast or pancakes, while corn beefed hash is your classic diner fare. For a healthy breakfast try the veggie wrap. Eggs and sautéed mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, onions and avocados are wrapped in a spinach tortilla served with a side of salsa. Flappy Jack’s famous skillets are a fried food lover’s dream come true. Coming in an array of preparations, Flappy Jack’s signature skillets offer all the joys of breakfast on one plate. The Texas skillet contains steak and veggies, while the Denver skillet has ham, onions, and topped with Monterey jack cheese.
