Sweet Maple is freakin phenomenal

Brunch at Sweet Maple isn’t just brunch. It’s freaking phenomenal. They serve a solid breakfast and lunch menu with a slight fusion twist.

From the eggs Benedict, to the French toast, to the breakfast pizzas, to the burgers- you really can’t go wrong with anything here. Oh yeah, and the servings are HUGE.

Plus, their famous Millionaire’s Bacon is Food Network approved.

Millionaires Bacon

Side: It’s honestly the thickest piece of bacon I’ve ever had.  And if the lines weren’t so damn long, I would totally go back JUST for a bite. They use free range bacon, dusted with brown sugar, black pepper, and cayenne before baking.

It’s pure amazing.

Maple Plates from Sweet MapleOne of my FAV dishes here is the Maple Plate. It’s literally the best Bfast plate ever because you get the best of everything:

Marnier French toast + two eggs + (choice of bacon, chicken mango sausage, pork lime sausage, or chicken curry sausage).

You get three beautifully concocted wedges of bread dipped in a creamy Marnier batter, pan-fried, then dusted with powdered sugar and cinnamon.

Breakfast pizza at Sweet Maple

For those of you who are pizza obsessed, yah gotta try the breakfast pizzas.

This one is called the Swine $16. It’s a bad ass breakfast pizza with killer toppings: bacon, pork-lime sausage, Canadian bacon, mozzarella, russet, potato, egg, arugula, and marinara.

The crust is super thin, crispy, and buttery… lightly coated in marinara and a perfectly over-easy egg. #foodporn

New York Cheesesteak

For anyone craving something a little more hearty and filling, the New York Cheesesteaks and burgers aren’t a bad idea.

You get a ridiculously large cheesesteak that is nearly impossible to eat in a classy way.

Other notable mentions:

Big Hip 
The famous deep-fried French Toast (this also makes for a very worthy Instagram pic!)

Chicken Rancheros
Poached egg, grilled chicken breast, avocado,
roasted salsa*, on corn tortillas. Scallion, basil and mild chèvre.

Francis (Benedict) 
Guacamole, chicken mango sausage, tomato,
meyer lemon hollandaise

Camaron (scramble)
Tiger shrimp, baby spinach, non-pareil capers, shallot, garlic,
Monterey jack

PS: Their sister restaurant, Kitchen Story is also one of my FAV bfast spots in the entire city. They both serve a similar menu.

PSS: Do NOT come here starving on the weekends. Immediately put your name down on the sign in sheet. The wait is worth it. (I’d call each restaurant to see which one has shorter lines).

      It’s usually not one of my usual orders either. But it’s worth a try!

    I feel like sweet maple usually has shorter lines. If you arrive after rush hour, I usually get seated within 20 minutes.

    I love Kitchen Story, but have never been to Sweet Maple. I knew the food looked oddly familiar!
