Flap Jack Shack's Mimosa

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | March 16, 2019

Whether you’re kicking off your vacation or stuck here pretending to take one, the Flap Jack Shack will put you in full Bahama-momma mode. Every Saturday and Sunday, the retro-style diner rewards those who willing to wait in its ever-present (but fast-moving) weekend lineup with one heckuva deal: $1 off its $4.99 mimosas. We chose the strawberry-orange, in which fresh strawberry puree is squeezed down the sides of the flute, then champagne generously poured in the center, followed by a bright dose of O.J. on top. Try one; you’ll quickly realize the value in two. Find it, alongside a full bar and other “I’m on holidaaaaay!” eats, like Reese’s pancakes (a stack of buttermilk flap jacks topped with homemade peanut butter glaze and a scoop of chocolate-coated vanilla bean ice cream), the Meatlover’s Baked Omelette, and Fried Pigs in a Blanket, at: 3980 US-31 in Traverse City.
