Flapjack Flip-Off X: And the Winner Is...

The Tenth Annual Mrs. Beeton Flapjack Flip-Off

is here. Leading up to publication, Short Order each

day has highlighted one of the five unwitting contestants.


The winning griddlecakes were found stacked in the sky: Our 10th Annual Mrs. Beeton Flapjack Flip-Off Trophy is proudly presented to Sky Grille,

located on the 11th floor of the Miami Tower. Aramark Food Services has

run the breakfast/lunch cafeteria for years, but who knew the outfit

made such impeccable pancakes? Fluffiest by far, the finely crumbed

cakes were richly bronzed in color and served straight off the grill.

Beautiful. So was service, or shall we say "self-service," for you grab

a tray, march to the station of your choice, and politely ask breakfast

chef Joaquin to prepare whatever. Pancakes are sold by the piece, just

$1.29 each -- the best Flip-Off deal of this or any other year. The

"double black, double caffeine" joe, one of a few Java City coffees

lined up in large dispensers, packs a jolly jolt -- extra points for

offering choice of milk or half-and-half. Peerless accommodations

encompass a wide array of plush seats with panoramic views of downtown

Miami. Outdoor patio tables offer the same vista, but alongside ponds

and fronds. We shaved a couple of points off for very weak

maple-flavored syrup, but otherwise this was an impressive victory. One

can only hope the Miami Tower folks acknowledge the honor by lighting

up their three-tiered building in the luscious hues of pancake, maple

syrup, and butter. These colors really do meld together quite

pleasingly. Two pancakes, $2.58; coffee, $1.69. Total: $4.27.
