This is a locals place and only has 10 tables. We were hear for breakfast at about 7:25 am and there were some empty table available. My first impression was of the greeting we received and how clean the place was. The service was excellent,...our order was taken with suggestions and well taken. We had the Jersey witch was a Pork roll and egg with cheese on a roll and it was done just right. I though I was back in NJ. The prices for the entire menu were very reasonable. You know it's hard to find a good locals place but this one check all the boxes. We will be backMore

The new owners of this business have ruined it. There no hot water in the bathroom, they are selling poor quality food that taste horrible. Please don't get the pancakes! And there were bugs flying around I was bitten by mosquitoes while eating my breakfast...and I was seated inside not outside the restaurant. These people have no idea how to run a restaurant and should never have been allowed to buy this oneMore

Stopped in for breakfast after church and because of its small size and limited seating capacity, we were pleasantly asked to place our name on a wait list. After about fifteen minutes outside, were ushered in by one of two very pleasant ladies who were...busy serving tables and greeting customers, many by name. Obviously, a popular local place and from the food, and service, we see why. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the coffee was especially good. We're looking forward to trying some other interesting menu options to try on our future visits.More

If you want to get a good breakfast in Venice, Flapjacks is the place to go. The restaurant is quite small, so you may have a wait in peak season. There are a couple of tables for two on the sidewalk. Very good coffee, breakfast...items are cooked to order. If you want crisp bacon, you get crisp bacon. Friendly staff, even though it may be understaffed - quite common these days. I enjoy a traditional breakfast of eggs, bacon or sausage, grits, and biscuit. The wife goes for flapjacks with sugar free syrup and a side of ham. Son goes for corned beef & eggs and a mimosa. We have visited many times, never disappointed.More

I originally wrote a review of Flapjacks in 2017. It has since changed hands and now has a new owner chef, Jeff, from the New Jersey/Philly area. This is such a gem. Clean with changing specials and good fresh homemade food. Their Grant's Ultimate Grill...Cheese with four cheeses is out of this world. As is their homemade hash. My partner is an expert on hash and tries it wherever we go. Said their is the best. The owner/chef Jeff came out to check on his customers this morning during the morning rush. Very much appreciated. I without reservations recommend this place.More

After seeing the great reviews my wife and I decided to stop and have a midday breakfast. I decided to expose my Appalachian roots by having the gravy and biscuits while my wife had the veggie omelet. Everything was scrumptious. The gravy was full of...chunks of country smoked sausage and the biscuits were big and fluffy with that perfect combination of slightly crisped outside and moist, light fluffiness inside. The home fries were fried to a nice golden brown and were also nicely crisp outside and soft and tender inside. My wife's omelet was wonderful; full of all the right veggies and bursting with flavor. The fruit that she opted for was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent. The server was right on point. He was quick to take our order and attentive so that we didn't run out of our soft drinks before we got refills. Both the hostess and the chef came out to greet us and inquire about our meal. Our check was at out table as we took our last bites and promptly handled once the card was presented. For down home cooking it doesn't get any better than this and all for bargain prices! We will definitely be back!More

We tried Flapjack's Cafe for the first time today and really enjoyed it. I had the Avocado Toast special - which was very tasty with red onions and feta cheese - plus a nice spinach salad and fruit. My husband really liked his Meat Omelet...- which he said was very flavorful. Our server was friendly and efficient handling the whole restaurant of about a dozen tables. Prices were also very reasonable - with a discount for cash. We will be back!More

Been years since my last breakfast here. Tiny place with owner/cook and one waitress covering several tables. Ordered an omelette with fruit and English muffin. Odd that only half muffin showed on my plate. Omelette was tasty and tiny side of fruit was good. Think...I’ll stick with Peaches for my next breakfast on the town.More
