Nookies may frequent this joint for the eggs bennies and mochiko chicken and waffles. But my go-to isn’t your traditional breakfast fare.

The epitome of sweet-meets-savory, the Brekkie Stack makes it difficult for me to get anything else. Two billowy pieces of French toast with cheddar and fontina. Two sunny-side eggs and two pieces of bacon. A glorious, messy sandwich drizzled in bacon maple syrup.

The Brekkie Stack ($13.50) is basically a grilled cheese on steroids.

Each bite is an explosion of flavors. Ultra savory, gooey cheese. Salty, slightly crispy bacon. Sweet, fluffy French toast that’s perfect for mopping up the maple syrup. And egg yolk all over.

Cheese lovers will appreciate the strong flavors from the cheddar and fontina, coupled with the gooey factor.

This stack takes breakfast to the next level because you can easily enjoy all the layers at once. With every mouthful, you can get a little of the cheese (my favorite part), bacon, French toast and eggs.

The Brekkie Stack may be a great start to your day, but you’ll want to crawl right back into bed when you’re done.
