After we got seated everything was a long wait, drinks, order, food, all took forever but they were crazy busy so I get it. Waitress seemed a little green, asked "what" a lot instead of "could you repeat that". My daughters plate of crepes had an onion on it and my French toast had some cheese shreds on it, so... More

First visit was on a Sunday and it was busy and we had to wait about 15 mins but the food was good and fast. The second visit was during the week and the place was pretty quiet and the food was just as good and and the service was great both times. We have only had breakfast items so... More

I stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. THere were a lot of options on the menu, but I always seem to order a meat and cheese omelet. In this case it was a Sausage and Cheese. They use 5 large eggs to make their omelets, and it was evident at the size on the plate. I enjoyed the... More

My mom took me here for breakfast on a Sunday morning, and it was just a wonderful experience all-around. They have a fantastic menu, with tons and tons of options. I opted for the Irish skillet, and my mom had one of the eggs benedict options. Both meals were out-of-this-world delicious, and both were more than enough to take some... More

Great prices, good service, good food. Flappy's provides one of the most extensive breakfast menus you can find in the area. The staff was friendly and worked well together in serving us. Spartan omelette is spinach, tomatoes and feta. Will be back.

We eat here often and it never disappoints! We are always seated promptly, wait staff is always friendly and the food is great. They serve very large portions for the price so expect to bring home leftovers and the menu is huge so bring your appetite!

We were promptly greeted at the door, and seated at a table. The place was packed on a Sunday at 11 am. Very lively environment and enjoyable. There were three of us and everything was ample. There were many options to order. The eggs could be regular, eggbeaters or egg whites. You have no excuse to leave hungry. The meals... More

This place meets a person's basic breakfast needs and gives you a lot of food. It is often very slow which is okay if you are here with a friend and not on a lunch break.

This is the site of the best pancakes, waffles, and all griddle delicacies in Dekalb. You can have them sweet, with hazlenuts and chocolate chips, or savory with green onions, ham and cheese. There are massive omeletes, skillets and freshly squeezed orange juice as well. This is a favorite spot for brunch on the weekend.

I had the gyro scrambler with French toast. It was perfect. My wife had a spartan omelet that she enjoyed. The noise level was good for my seven month old, who didn't seem to be affected by anyone.
