Start Your Day With Breakfast at Flapjax Diner, Now Open in Santa Monica


A new restaurant has opened on Wilshire Boulevard near the corner of 24th Street. The front is painted a deep blue, and the name Flapjax Diner is above the door to the entrance.

Many of you who love Bru’s Wiffle, across the street on Wilshire, will be delighted to know that Flapjax Diner is also owned by Ebru Caplan.

The focus on this menu is breakfast, brunch, and lunch. My friend and I ordered a few dishes off the menu to share. It was interesting. Usually when the server brings your food, you start eating right away. But, we were so in awe of the generous servings, as they were a feast for our eyes, too. We studied what was in each dish and then divided them up.

The Mediterranean Salad (shown above) was a mix of greens, farro, feta, chickpeas, tomato, and curls of cucumber with a dressing of a perfect blend of olive oil and lemon. There were at least four servings.


Brioche French toast.

We also sampled the crustless breakfast quiche with spinach and feta. It was accompanied with breakfast potatoes and peppers. Also delicious, and so filling.

The crunchy brioche French toast was divine. Fresh summer berries in a berry sauce can be combined with freshly made whipped cream, and the silky taste of bites of brioche were definite palate pleasers.

There is so much more on the menu to try... Appetizers, Burgers, Sandwiches, and Burritos. And, the servers were great and welcoming. Outdoor seating is available in front and back.


A unique appetizer to try is fried yuca with chipotle aioli. The yuca fries were lighter than French fries, with a tangy sauce for dipping.

Put Flapjax Diner on your list of restaurants to discover this new summer season. They are located at 2315 Wilshire Blvd., in Santa Monica. Hours are Tues-Fri: 8am-2pm and Sat-Sun: 8am-3pm.
