Shopsin's with friends is seeing what they'll order. On our last trip to Shopsin's I was still on a bit of a lunchy kick, opting for the Brigette: chicken salad, avocado and tomato on on garlic bread while Blondie went the breakfast route with the So Good: french toast grilled cheese with poached eggs. Now that's what I call breakfast...
Only Shopsin's could come up with something as diabolically delicious as a grilled cheese made up of french toast and poached eggs. Brilliant.
I was excited to see that Shopsin's famous donuts have made their way back on the most recent iteration of the menu. In addition to our entrees we opted to share a half order of cinnamon donuts with Blondie's friend Ginger. There's nothing in the world like a hot, fresh donut and these are made to order. They go from fryer to your plate (to your table) in around a minute, arriving perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and tender in the middle. Highly, highly recommended that you save or make room for these.
