The staff is always kind and their pancakes are amazing! I love the Hawaiian pancakes served with coconut syrup! I have also had the banana nut waffles with maple syrup, equally as yummy. I always leave full, happy and with some left over for later. I've never felt sick after and appreciate their dedicated gluten free section of the menu!

Best place to get gluten free breakfast. Lots of different options for pancakes and waffles. I personally like to get just plain pancakes but my mom loves their hawaiian style waffles and there bacon waffles. Honestly some of the best gluten free waffle and pancakes that i’ve had.

Really delicious place to eat but they do have some cross contamination when it comes to waffles or pancakes sadly. I still had some symptoms due to this mistake.

Quantity goes a long way def get moneys worth Quality is still good being gluten free batter but cross contamination needs a bit more asjustments

We love the GF waffles here! The only downside, is that it’s usually very crowded and has a wait. It’s so nice to find a breakfast spot with lots of options.

I have eaten here several times and have not got sick. I talk to the waiter before I order and make sure they know I have a severe allergy and they need to clean the waffle maker before my meal is made. Haven't gotten sick so far, would definitely recommend it!! Always very busy though.

I was so excited with the original shock of all the choices I had... but then I asked my waitress about it. She's said "oh yeah, an allergy that's all good for you" Then she went on to say that the gluten free waffles are made in the same waffle iron as the regular ones.

After pressing I got them to wash the grill before they made my gluten free pancakes. Still pretty sure I'm going to end up sick, but I'm tired of arguing with her.

If you're a Celiac. I have to say HARD PASS.

Yummy food but definitely not Celiac safe. They don't have separate waffle irons and won't clean the grill unless you ask. They are often busy so I doubt it would be done in a way to avoid cross contamination. We won't take our son here which is really too bad because they're gluten food is quite good but it's not worth risking his health. They just don't seem to care enough to make this a viable option for someone with a serious food allergy or Celiac.

The food was and hot, delicious. They have eggs 22 different ways. The turkey sausage was perfectly baked, nice and lean how I like it. Gluten free pancakes and 15 + ways to have pancakes. The coffee was freshly made, many refills, great service. Lots of choices on the menu. Come with an appetite, The Cool decor is from the 50's era, an awesome tribute to Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. The best choice for the area as i have visited Keno's and the other local chains, that lack in Flavor, service and portions. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Give them a try you won't be disappointed.

Wow! These guys are serious about breakfast and that includes some amazing gluten free waffles and pancakes! I had a hard time believing that the light, fluffy, pancakes were actually GF. My sons waffle was so ridiculously non-GF tasting that we double checked with our server. Despite the perfect food and attentive service, I kept waiting for the fallout (You know when something seems too good to be true, it usually is), but there was none! Well done Flappy Jack. We will definitely be back.
