Yeah, I Ate That Series: The Cyclops

It has been QUITE awhile since I have written a piece for the “Yeah, I Ate That Series.” I was thinking today about one of my favorite over-the-top dishes back in the Milwaukee area.

There is a little diner on North Ave. in Wauwatosa called Daymaker Cafe. Brett and my brother took me for my birthday in 2010 (that was also the same day I tried Pat’s Rib Place the first time – fabulous day overall.)

I’m a huge lover of pancakes – buttermilk, whole wheat, Dutch Babies, crepes – if it’s any type of pancakes, I love it. Plain. And. Simple. (That could also be why I packed on about 30 extra pounds in the past five years, but I digress.)

Daymakers makes The Cyclops. The best way to describe it is like the “Peekhole Sandwich” I wrote about recently on my Mom’s birthday but with a pancake. Make a large pancake, cut a hole in it, stuff it with sausage and egg. Voila! A Cyclops!

Cyclops from Daymakers CafeWhile not everything on the menu is a magical, mythical creature like the Cyclops, they do offer other fabulous offerings. I do remember grabbing plenty of bites of Brett’s “Pretzel-Bread French Toast” that is served with peanut butter syrup.
