Flapjack’s Pancake Cabin in Garden City (directly across from Walmart on Business 17)
Check the times before heading over, as I believe they may close at 1:00pm
I met with a couple of girlfriends for breakfast recently. It was our first time visiting since it opened.
The thing we all liked most was how different the atmosphere is from other local breakfast joints. High ceilings, two fireplaces, spacious, clean.
I always expect a new place to have friendly, cheerful staff and Flapjacks did not disappoint on that. Penny, our server, was attentive without being overbearing and the epitome of Southern friendly.
I had an omelet and hash browns and toast. I loved that the hash browns were not in the least bit greasy as most usually are.
I found that the toast was only just barely toasted. I mention this in case you’re like me and expect toast to be….you know…..toasted. My daughters, who have both been servers in the local area tell me that’s how toast is served in restaurants here….that most patrons ask for it that way. Being as I’m one who doesn’t like to send food back to be fixed for something so minor….I dealt with it.
If you’re someone who enjoys a robust cup of coffee…..then you might be disappointed. I sometimes wonder why restaurants which primarily serve breakfast don’t realize how important the coffee is in adding to the overall experience. In my humble opinion, this place should have coffee as the leading man and flapjacks as the leading lady. Maybe weak coffee is another Southern thing? I’ve lived here for almost 9 years and I can’t answer that question for you.
The ambiance at Flapjacks elevates the experience, but when you strip that all away…..it’s a basic plate of breakfast food…..and I am basing that on one experience and one entree….so please do with that information as you will.
I wish this place well in the upcoming tourist season
