Flappy Jacks

First, for your listening pleasure, a kids' song that we love:

In our house, we love going out for breakfast.  Our favorite spot has always been Cafe Verde in Pasadena, but now it's a bit of a trek if we're not heading that direction anyways.  The default in Claremont has been the Village Diner or IHOP.  My girls *love* IHOP but I'm getting a little tired of it.  We took the girls to a Glendora classic, Flappy Jacks, a few weeks ago and now they're hooked.  

Daddy had the Cream of Wheat pancakes which were delicious and the girls each got a Mickey Mouse pancake with some mini chocolate chips . . . any chocolate at breakfast time is exciting for them.  I had the pecan waffle and it was to die for.  A note of caution:  the portions are huge and you can easily split - especially the omelets, skillets, and regular portions of pancakes.  A bonus:  if your kids are early risers like mine, they open at 6am Monday through Saturday :)

  1. In Imy house, chocolate is always a cause for cheering. Sounds like a fun place. I've never been there but will have to try it.

  2. I like to hear your girls like FJ! Let us know next time you're heading there, maybe we'll join you!
