Latest Short Stack Eatery news and reviews

JM ate the biscuits and gravy with a lemonade.
Nichole ate the short stack of SPO minus marscapone plus two eggs scrambled and a grapefruit juice.
The bill was $27, or $13.50/person, plus tip.
JM gave Short Stack Eatery an A-; Nichole gave Short Stack Eatery an A (see our grading rubric).

Nichole loves Short Stack so much she can't even find the good words. It's a sweetly earnest place with a compact and tasty menu, and a sense of fun.

Tip jar poll

Pancakes naturally shine here but so do other dishes. The cheese grits with pork are scrumptious, as is the decadent breakfast sandwich, and various meat/cheese/veg options make for multifarious scrambles. Trios are a lighter option (on the tummy and the wallet) that let you choose greens, eggs, bread, and/or a breakfast meat; Nichole's favorite trio is greens, scrambled eggs, and their rosemary bread toasted with Porchlight's rhubarb preserves on the side.

But on this visit Nichole got a short stack of the hearty sweet potato oatmeal pancakes (like carrot cake in a flapjack) and a mountain of scrambled eggs. JM got the biscuits and gravy, which were delightfully spicy with just a touch of nuttiness in the biscuit. The eggs were a perfect complement. The crossover between "southern" and "Cajun" was never more merited.


Highly recommended!

My favorite thing to get there is the Blind Special. It's never let me down and is always delicious. And CHEAP! Since I like to be surprised.
