Breakfast for 4 at Shopsin's

Four of us are meeting at Shopsin's for breakfast. We intent to order one dish each and share. Would anyone like to craft our breakfast of four dishes for us? Thanks hounds!

  1. I would probably do:
    1. Sliders with carmelized onions
    2. Glazed maple donuts
    3. Mac and cheese pancakes (though if you're my husband, you get the Capt'n J or Mo'Jemima)
    4. one of the Petes

    I haven't been as impressed with the Blisters on My Sisters, but if sounds good to you, that could be something for your fourth dish, swapped out for the Pete.

    1. Thanks Kathryn! I'm thinking we'll definitely do a Pete and pancakes (either Mac N Cheese or Slutty). I think it might be early for sliders... we're meeting at 9AM. Not that it's any heavier than everything else, but I can't wrap my head around burgers for breakfast. Maybe a different sandwich? I've never had the donuts... that might be just the thing!

        Their sliders are great. Not to be missed. Maybe order the Castles, which have cheese and egg on them?

        Note that there are three kinds of Slutty Cakes:
        1 pumpkin, peanut butter, pistachios, cinnamon
        2 banana, pistachio butter, peanuts, brown sugar
        3 kaya, peanut butter, cashews, blackberry glaze

      2. Huh, are those last two options new? My instinct is to go for the classic pumpkin, but maybe time to try something new. I don't even know what kaya is!

          Yes--noticed the Slutty Cakes #2 and #3 only on my last visit a week ago.

          Kaya is apparently a sweet coconut egg jam.

        2. with the pancakes, you can get a half order of each, so do the slutty pancakes and mac and cheese to try it. btw, maple syrup+their hot sauce+mac and cheese pancakes=awesome

            Agreed! Definitely ask for their hot sauce. I also like the fact that they give you a mini bottle of grade A maple syrup (not pancake syrup).
