Momocho's Eric Williams Announces Ohio City Breakfast Joint

Posted By on Wed, Nov 6, 2013 at 10:37 AM


Eric Williams, along with his partner Randy Carter, will open Jack Flaps, a 40-seat "urban breakfast shop" in Ohio City. Set in the former home of Palookaville Chili (3900 Lorain Ave.), the breakfast and lunch cafe will serve a short stack of creative waffles, pancakes and French toast dishes.

Items might include vanilla bean pancakes with crumbled graham cracker crust, lemon curd, whipped cream and fresh blueberry; malted milk waffles with chocolate ganache and cereal milk whipped cream, "which taste like a Whopper," says Williams; and a breakfast burger with homemade chicken apple sausage, lettuce, tomato, onion and a fried egg.

City Roast coffee and hard-to-find canned sodas like Cherikee Red will round out the limited menu.

For the last three years, Carter has worked alongside Williams at Momocho.

"I'm helping Randy open his own business and become a chef-owner," says Williams. "The place also fills a need in the neighborhood, and I just want to have fun with my next place."

Jack Flaps will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. until approximately 3 p.m. Look for a mid-December opening.
