Being a purist, my first visit to Flapjack's (Glebe location) had to involve just plain pancakes. I opted for the Medium Stack -- 4 buttermilk pancakes for $3.99+tax = $4.50.

These are indeed excellent pancakes. Thick, fluffy but not too fluffy, and on the eggy side of the pancake spectrum. They get their uniform thickness and shape from being cooked in crumpet rings. Given the beautiful browning, I'm guessing they're using shortening to grease the skillet and rings. Sweet and salty levels are spot on balanced.

My one complaint is that the condiment cuplet of maple syrup was more suited to a pair of pancakes than to four. In terms of flavour and satisfaction per calorie, I'd prefer to have half the pancakes and more maple syrup. Butter would be nice too.

I'm not one who thinks pancakes make superior breakfast sandwich "buns" compared to the standard English muffin; however, if and when I return to Flapjack's I'll try a breakfast sandwich anyway.

Genius food truck idea! Ingredients are almost as cheap as for poutine and there's no deep fryer to maintain. Of course pancakes are waaay easier than fries to make at home, but that doesn't seem to stop people from lining up at this little shack in the urban woods.

I went big the first time I came across Flapjack's Pancake Shack at the Somerset location, right in front of the Plant pool: I ordered the pancake poutine. It consisted of julienne pancakes, huge chewy cheese curds and a chicken gravy.

It was a lot of food but I did eat all the cheese curds. The chicken gravy is a good idea as it is a bit sweet and complements the pancake well. The pancake was thick and overall good tasting. I thought it was bit mushy in a couple of bites.

I'll definitely be back to try the other options. This was a bit of a huge portion for me!
