Out of the 3 above I like flappy jacks the most.

Is that the one off the 55? I see it but it's usually after breakfast... do they serve breakfast all day?

I'm going to visit this place just because you rec'd it.

The one off 55.   Use to be a spires, but now is a flappy jacks.
Go there early or late, but not prime time, as it is an hour wait.

I'm sure you'll like it.  Food is done well.  I think it closes at 2pm.

Grrr... just Googled... it closes at 3pm. I'm usually driving by in the afternoon. I can't really go in the morning because outside my IF window... maybe I'll cheat one day.

So I was able to hit Flappy.

I think I may have visited the Glendora location years ago because the 50s Diner/Hollywood decor seemed familiar.

The menu is much like Original Pancake House but more expensive. Food was good... what you expect from a diner/breakfast place... no fru-fru so much more my style. :)

So looks like Churned Creamery is out in Woodbury Town Center and One Zo Boba has opened in that spot.  Finally a Boba place in WTC... Haven’t tried it yet but Brown Sugar Milk Tea looks good and BOGO 50% off in Retail Therapy App.

Onezo is known for their boba. Drinks are okay. But definitely an A level choice here in Irvine. Can’t wait for the lines to die down.

I like Omomo for drinks but the long lines scare me away. Does anyone know if they are still crowded?

The Churned in our area was closed out as well. Looks like asking $7.00 a scoop isn't quite the sustainable business model some had thought it might be.

Their ice cream wasn't that good either.  I enjoy my Tillamook ice cream for a lot less.

I believe if the food is good, then the good business outcome will follow. If they just open one for the money, people will lose interest soon.

Back when minimum wage was $5.00, a combo meal at Mcdonalds was also around $5.00
Now that the minimum wage is $12.00, a combo meal at Mcdonalds is $9.00

I see that as wage growth...at least against fast food.

Go on a Monday-Thursday evening, the lines will be 5min or less.

Anxious to try Onezo Brown sugar milk tea and boba, sounds pretty good. 

For ice cream I still think creamistry is best.  I typically don’t like the chain places but creamistry ice cream has the best texture and stays chewy and solid most the way through.  Thai Tea ice cream with marshmallows mixed in, yummmmmmm...
