We came here for brunch on a Sunday morning and had to wait for quite a while - not an issue for the adults, but our toddler was definitely ready to eat by the time we got seated! The waiting area is VERY small, but...More

Went to the location on Euclid downtown. Very small restaurant with communal tables. I got pancakes which were $8.00 for 2 large cakes. Toppings are extra at $1.50 each. Husband got eggs and sausage with hash. Coffee was good. Very laid back place but pricey.

3rd trip to Jackflaps and expected a wait, even on a weekday morning. However, it is unreasonable to have people waiting in line because tables are unbussed and patrons are waiting to have their checks cleared. Either hire more staff, or retrain those that you...More

There are 2 locations, and both have street parking - downtown will be more challenging.
