Rise and shine, breakfast lovers!
If the first meal of the day is as important to you as it is to me, you'll need to check out my review of Perk Eatery in Scottsdale. These folks know breakfast -- lunch, too -- and they've got some of the best pancakes around. Here's a taste:
"Thick and golden from the griddle, they overlapped each other like round, flat pillows. Eagerly, I pressed the side of my fork down to release the first fluffy bite. Light, warm, and delicately sweet with a whisper of vanilla that made me close my eyes and draw a breath, these pancakes were to be savored, like a massage or a good read.
And they were perfect in their nakedness, needing not the slightest smattering of butter or a few sugary drops of maple syrup to elevate their flavor."
