Billed as an “urban breakfast shop,” Jack Flaps is a 40-seat eatery serving pancakes, waffles and root vegetable hash to the masses in Ohio City & Fifth Street Arcade. But these aren’t your typical diner breakfasts. Sure, you can go with the original buttermilk pancakes — or you can opt for candied jalapeno, lemon curd or crackerjack pancakes. Also on the menu: eggy bread, crab benedict and a “spam scrapple with meat butter.”
And, even though it’s not advertised on the menu, there is a vegan batter you can substitute. So, if you want to have vegan carob chip pancakes, they can do that.
