If eating is less about having a religious experience at Plow and more about getting ready for the day, Cracked And Battered is a solid choice for breakfast. They have things like eggs, pancakes, and fried chicken, but if you’re really hungry, the cabbage fried rice is a good order and comes with two eggs and a piece of boneless fried chicken that’s really good. The buckwheat pancakes are also a solid option, especially if you’re with people who avoid gluten at all costs.
