Glad we found this Ohio city favorite for families and the hip professionals. Appreciated the fluffy over-sized pumpkin pie pancakes, but my husband found the fireside cider ones a bit too much an experience. My brother loved his fall squash and hash and eggs; my...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
