Ebelskivers - like a combo of banana bread, french toast and pancakes all rolled into one
Mac and Cheese pancakes
Bacon and Egg pancakes
Castles - the sliders are the best I have ever had. EVER
Piaf - it's like french onion soup, with eggs and toast.
Egg Chimichanga - their guacamole is unbelievable. I was surprised!
If you liked poached eggs, any of the "Pete" dishes. They are all good. I like the Wiggly Pete.
Mac and cheese pancakes, slutty pancakes, or bacon and egg pancakes. The sliders. Any of the "petes" (egg dishes). Have heard the soups are good too:
Search is your friend
BTW, this past week we finally discovered the Tasty 1 and Tasty 2 platters. The Tasty 2 is two blueberry, two slutty, and two cinnamon raisin. Just enough to get a take of the slutty cakes without getting tired of them (although I think the pistachio nuts are amazing and make the dish). Although my fiance ended up stealing half of my bacon/egg pancakes, with a few generous squirts of their housemade hot sauce and half the maple syrup bottle.
Meanwhile, I discovered become addicted to their take on the orange julius: an Orange Boulius: foamy orange with pomegranate. Delicious!
Friend of mine went more lunchy with a small soup (chipotle cream - exactly as advertised, creamy and spicy and smoky) and a Jew Boy sandwich. BBQ pulled beef brisket, grilled onions, and Swiss cheese. Yum.
Call first - I was over at Essex Market on Friday, and Shopsin's was closed for renovations.
I've only eaten there once. I had the yin/yang combo with szechwan (sic) shrimp soup and refried cheese rice. Soup was great; rice was fine, nothing special. The breakfast dishes are renowned.
