It's been nearly two years now since we originally talked our way into Lot 2 without a reservation. My how time flies... and I've had the opportunity to visit several times again (reservations still recommended). All meals were right up there in the fantastic category... though I can't warrant spending $3 for a slice of bacon (no matter how thickly cut it is or how much maple infusion it has going for it).

That's what I call a sidecar.
So, in short, skip the side of bacon... you'll need that $6 for your Bloody Mary and PBR sidecar. (Word of warning... sidecar here = tallboy can. So come thirsty!)

If you get tired of beer and bloodies, there are always mimosas of course. Or you could step it up a level and have your bourbon for breakfast like the good whiskey lover you are... I knew it couldn't just be me.

Behold. The Kentucky Breakfast cocktail.

Bourbon for Breakfast!

2 ounces bourbon
1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce rich simple syrup (2 parts sugar to 1 part water)
1/2 ounce egg white, beaten
1 teaspoon apricot preserves

Yep, that'll get the engine running for the day. Just enough to power through brunch and then make it all the way home and to the couch for a nice nap.

Oh... also there was food. Good food, and lots of it.

I wanted everything... smoked salmon, benny, poutine, breakfast burrito, biscuits and gravy and Ramen. Ramen for breakfast!

But settled on the Fried Chicken and Waffles.

Was it because the maple syrup was also made with bourbon? Or because the waffle had smoked cheddar cheese in it? We may never know... but what can be known is that this was the KING of chicken and waffle dishes.  All hail the supreme ruler of the breakfast domain.
