Shorty's Sunflower Cafe

Shorty's is a gem in the suburbs. It is one of the best breakfast places around. They make their food with love, and it shows. Fresh, creative items, for a reasonable price. There is often a line, but it is worth the wait. We were able to sit outside and skip the wait all together. Win-win. I went for the breakfast club. I have had it before, and I was in a comforting breakfast sandwich mood, thanks to the festivities of the bike race I was in yesterday (I actually did a required shot of beef blood, and it was as gross as it sounds). Stacked on the breakfast club (get it?) is bacon, egg, mayo, lettuce and tomato on toast. I love the simplicity of this sandwich, and the interplay of the fatty bacon and the fresh crispy lettuce and moist tomato bites.

This is the dirty eggroll. I hadn't eaten this one before, but I am sure glad I can say that I now have! It is a scramble of ground beef, eggs, Monterey Jack cheese, and breakfast potatoes, all tightly rolled in a large flour tortilla. The barbeque sauce on the top is fantastic. It was tangy and smoky, and you could smell it from the other end of the table. This was a great breakfast burrito.

Finally were the Texan eggs in a hole. This was always my go-to dish. It is two eggs cooked in Texas toast, with jack cheese, salsa, and sour cream, served on home fries. It is soo good. I actually copied their style and make my eggs in a hole like that all the time now. It's so good with the salsa to keep everything moist. This is yet another great dish. The yolk mixes with the home fries beautifully as they cook the eggs perfectly. The only hard part of eggs in a hole is not overcooking the eggs. As usual, Shorty's Sunflower Cafe did not disappoint.
